How the best popcorn store came to be!
POParella's was conceived and is now owned/operated by
a family with a desire. We are the Paparella’s, Liza, Natalie, Meagan and me, Gary. We relocated from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to Frisco, Texas by way of career opportunities with my former company, Dr. Pepper Snapple Group. Not long after the relocation, the family made a life changing decision. The exhaustion from the corporate world was one factor in this decision. The desire to be self employed, our enjoyment of people and the desire to be creative fueled our enthusiasm. What pushed us over the edge was the inspiration and support from each other and family members, we were convinced to open a family business, our choice, gourmet popcorn and candy store.
One of the first orders of business was to find a location to plant this new endeavor. We could have gone anywhere, but our older daughter, Natalie, pointed out the obvious: we were already living in the prime location for the launch of our new opportunity, Frisco, Texas.
Our next step was to hire a consultant to teach us about popcorn. Once we knew and understood the process backward and forward, we took the plunge!
We believed in Frisco and ourselves and financed the project with no bank loans, only our own funds. With our finances in order, our minds full of kernel knowledge and a few tricks up our sleeves, we opened the doors on December 1, 2008, just six months after the idea was conceived!
POParella's has grown from under forty to over sixty, delicious tongue tingling flavors that are hard to keep in the house. Flavors like White Chocolate Oreo and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough to Lime Cilantro, a house favorite, Dill Pickle, and we keep the flavors coming. We also serve Biscotti and coffee. We are also the only retailer around serving SWEET & SOUR Australian Licorice, sold by the rope!! POParella's also available at CINEMARK Movie Theater and Pole Position Go Cart Facility, Frisco Square location. Don't forget our creamy made on site fudge and our hand made s'mores featured in Frisco Style Magazine. A bed of caramel corn smothered with marshmallow creme, hershey chocolate, grahm cracker, mini marshmallow and then drizzled with dark chocolate!
