Popcorn merchandisers are designed to display popcorn attractively either in loose kernel form or in bags/boxes. Merchandisers for bagged or boxed popcorn have shelves designed to hold many containers of popcorn.
This type of merchandiser makes sales quick and easy, but it is important to keep the machine filled; an empty merchandiser is not as attractive.
Popcorn merchandisers are available in three model types:
Drop-in Popcorn Merchandisers
Drop-in popcorn merchandisers are attached to large-capacity popcorn machines. These units are idea for businesses such as movie theaters that sell a lot of popcorn and need more storage space. They range from 30 to 48 inches in width, and only hold loose popcorn, not popcorn in bags.
Countertop Popcorn Merchandisers
Countertop popcorn merchandisers, designed to sit atop your counter to make an attractive display, are the most popular type of merchandiser. The most important consideration is width, as you will need to ensure that they fit in your available space. These machines range from 12 to 36 inches in width.
Floor Model Popcorn Merchandisers
These units are for operations that sell a high-volume of individually boxed popcorn. They stand up to 42 inches high and 13 inches wide, and are also heated in order to keep popcorn warm and fresh for long periods of time. They require an electric outlet.
Other things to consider:
If you are looking to add a popcorn popper to your concessions operation, consider purchasing a colorful and eye-catching popcorn pedestal or popcorn cart.
You can place your popcorn machine on top of these bright, decorative pieces in order to further attract attention to your buisness.
