Motor City Popcorn began as a dream for the metro Detroit area to embrace itself through a fun, universally enjoyable product!
Detroit has been through some hard times over the years and at one time shunned by many.. As the city has enjoyed it's rebirth, it's time to get back to the fun times and what better way to do that than to enjoy popcorn!!!!
In 2012 the idea for a gourmet popcorn company in the city of Detroit arose,we joined small business programs such as SCORE, Build Institute, Launch Detroit, Foodlab Detroit & Retail Boot Camp, to help market the Motor City Popcorn brand, with winning awards and grants from programs such as Motor City Match, NEIdeas Challenge to name a few. In 2014, Motor City Popcorn opened its 1st retail location inside of Cobo Center in downtown Detroit, and over the years have been located in various locations such as Fairlane Town Center, in Dearborn, MI, Laurel Park Place Mall in Livonia, MI and we are now located back in the city of Detroit on west 7 Mile Rd. near The Avenue of Fashion.
Our vision is to establish a brand that represents Detroit in a fun, collective positive view. Motor City Popcorn has been accepted by a wide demographic and hope that this is going to be a product for years to come that Detroiters, as well as others can enjoy!
The Viola Liuzzo Park & Breast Cancer Cure Support Events
Motor City Popcorn supports The Viola Liuzzo Park. We've had the opportunity with Detroit city officials and business leaders and groups to help restore a park named in honor of Viola Liuzzo. Viola was killed by the KKK March 25, 1965 in Selma, Alabama for transporting a black voter during The Civil Rights movement.
“This is about restoring the park and giving fresh new walking trails. It’s also about educating people about Viola and what she did for the civil rights movement.
Our committee was formed in 2015 and we've been able to raise funds and work with a variety of donors for the completion of a beautiful park that can be enjoyed by residents for years to come.
January 16th, 2018 Motor City Popcorn sponsored a screening of the movie "Proud Mary" in Detroit for breast cancer patients and survivors. The evening was free for everyone which include drinks and of course.. free popcorn!
The event is the first of many for women affected by breast cancer as Motor City Popcorn supports the treatment and cure for this disease.
