Popcorn Food Trend

Move over cupcakes. Popcorn is the next big food trend writes Martha Write:

  • This gourmet popcorn is not cheap and can cost $5 or more per small bag.
  • Caterers are increasingly serving popcorn at classy gatherings such as weddings.
  • The popcorn business looks set for a lot of growth in part due to the low startup costs – anybody can make popcorn, as well as high margins, since the raw ingredients cost very little.
