Small Business of the week Pop Daddy Popcorn

Mark and Erin Sarafa founders of Pop Daddy Popcorn were both born and raised in Southeast Michigan. They met in 1990 while working together for Coca-Cola Enterprises in Auburn Hills, Mi. They have been married since 1995 and find themselves back together in the Food and Beverage Industry.

Erin was the proud owner of two National Franchise retail candle stores. She is now responsible for HR, AP, and AR at Pop Daddy Popcorn, LLC..

Mark graduated from the University of Michigan in 1989 and received his MBA in Marketing from Wayne State University in 1992. Mark worked his way through the Food and Beverage Industry spending time at Coca-Cola (4 Years), Frito-Lay (9 Years), and Absopure Water (12 Years).

With unwavering encouragement from Erin and the approval their 2 children, J.T. (16) and Grace (13), the Family incorporated Pop Daddy Popcorn in 2012. Mark made it his full time career in October of 2013.

Mark credits his wife with the start of the business. “I am so grateful that my wife and children had the faith in me to run a Family business. This is not something we have done alone. Our friends, neighbors, schools, and community in which we live have shown tremendous support through words and actions. We will be forever grateful, regardless of our achievements.” For more information about Pop Daddy Popcorn go to www.popdaddypocorn.com 

 

 

Pop Daddy Popcorn is available in Meijer stores and a variety of other stores in Michigan.
