Popping at the speed of sound
14 October, 2014
Chuck Yeager was an American test pilot who was the first person to break the sound barrier. If you don’t know what that means, that is when a speeding object (such as an airplane) passes the speed of sound.
We are not pilots, but we do know a little something about breaking sound barriers. Every morning when our doors open for the staff at 7:30 a.m. they head straight to the food processing area and turn on the popcorn machines. You may not believe the bright yellow bags of popcorn on the shelves when they say “Fresh Popcorn”, but we can assure you they are more than accurate. By the time our first customer walks in at 8 a.m. the shelves are stocked with fresh popped popcorn. This is a result of our super speedy staff that surpasses the speed of sound running around the processing area popping and stuffing bags so that you can have them fresh, every day. Yeager made his history-setting flight on October 14, 1947, but we have been working at the speed of sound since 1935.
If you come in mid-day and would prefer to have a warm snack for your ride home, then head up to the snack bar and ask for a fresh bag, box or bucket of popcorn. We have a popper right in the snack bar just for that reason. It too is turned on at 7:30 a.m. and isn’t turned off until closing time. Anytime of day, any day of the week (except for Sunday) come by and get your fresh popped popcorn. If you want to ship it to friends or family located elsewhere, no worries, that is all fresh too! You can order online at www.cromers.com or come into the store Monday-Friday 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. or Saturday 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. See you then!
