At Poko Popcorn, our on-going mission is to change the lives of snackers and Franchise Partners alike, one delicious kernel at a time!
In 2015, Marble Slab Creamery’s Canadian Franchisor created Poko Popcorn and paired it with key Marble Slab stores in and around Calgary, continually testing and perfecting the new gourmet snack brand and business model. In 2018, Poko Popcorn started traditional franchising. There are currently 7 stores open and 5 new standalone stores in development across Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, B.C. and Ontario. Investing in real, quality ingredients, developing a unique process and creating flavours packed with punch has established a loyal customer base, aiding the brand in adding new products; hand-spun Poko Cotton Candy and freshly squeezed Poko Lemonade.
Not only are we in the business of changing the lives of our customers with delicious snacks, our team is dedicated to the on-going commitment required to support each one of our franchisees. Our expert team of Operations, Marketing, and Franchise Business Consultants provide innovative all-inclusive support to ensure on-going success for our owners.
By investing in real, quality ingredients and developing a unique air-popping process, Poko has created flavours packed with a punch. Using only premium mushroom kernels that are freshly air popped and drizzled with real ingredients - no dusting, flavour salts, or chemicals added. Poko uses specialty warming cabinets in-store so our guests receive the popcorn fresh and warm. Just the way it was meant to be served and enjoyed, the gourmet way!
Our recipe for success:
- Leverage of an international, well-known franchise brand to ensure a turn-key store design with complimentary national and local marketing initiatives, advertising and graphic design services.
