Our owner Carmen, is a New Yorker born and raised, who has been a bookkeeper and accounting assistant at a CPA firm in Port Richey, Florida. As a child Carmen grew up eating and making homemade popcorn balls with her family. Popcorn is such a big deal in her family that at the age of 11, she dreamed of having her own popcorn business and would make caramel popcorn balls as gifts for family and friends using her Abuela’s cherished family recipe.
Why do people love gourmet popcorn? Many say because it is different, tasty, comforting. Others just love the smells of childhood. Carmen Milagros Torres’ gourmet popcorn startup story is one of empowerment, passion, commitment and the courage to share family traditions, a Latino twist for the most demanding palates.
