A Message From Our Founder
“Because blandness in any flavor is just hard to swallow.” — De J. Lozada
Continued from Home Page…
I decided to create the world’s first Soul Food popcorn flavor line because if you’re not innovating, why bother, right? From the start people loved it. And in less than 5 years of unfunded growth, Soul Popped has grown from parking lot deals to our first two retail locations in Austin, TX — all through the support and loyal following from our customers.
Of course I didn’t do it alone. We’ve had people who’ve seen our potential and wanted to help along the way as well as customers who’ve grown into a loyal legion of brand ambassadors we affectionately call our “Soul Poppers.” These wonderful people passionately evangelize our product to their family and friends across the U.S, and around the world!
Today Soul Popped is still a brand on the rise (yes, we’re finally ready to secure our first investor) and one to watch in the better-for-you snackfood category. Our new growth strategy is aligned with current market conditions and will allow us to grow into larger wholesale and grocery accounts throughtout the U.S. Thank you for choosing the company where everyday #lovepopshere.
