SOLD! Historical Dave’s Popcorn and Carmelcorn Stand.

Famous for their popcorn selection, flavors are plain, carmel, cheese, herb, triple mix and chocolate.

A new owner could be open more days (and months) and more hours.  Owners have been approached to set up at farmers markets, corporate events, graduations, weddings, etc. New owner could offer other food-related items with very little expense. This is easy-to-operate, lucrative operation.
