Not Just P-Nuts!

09 June, 2015

Here at Cromer’s, we’re more than just peanut experts. We have also mastered the art of popping the tastiest and freshest popcorn with 25 flavor options, offering customizable cotton candy colors and flavors, a café filled with gourmet sandwiches and a coffee shop perfect to start your day or just a yummy treat.

However, we are more than just snacks, sandwiches and coffee. We also offer machine rentals, event catering and advertising specialties.

Cromer’s popcorn is popped daily so it is always fresh, just as the bright yellow bags say. If the popcorn is kept sealed, it can stay fresh for 6-8 weeks! Our popcorn is popped in coconut oil rather than the traditional canola oil. This gives your popcorn a healthier edge so you don’t feel guilty about indulging in your tasty snack!

Peanuts are boiled, packaged and sold daily. Along with our boiled peanuts, we offer many different styles of peanuts. Roasted, salted, no salt, new crop…you can find a delicious treat no matter what! If you’re in the mood for another crunchy snack, we also offer pistachios, cashews, peanut brittle and chocolate covered almonds.

Our café offers breakfast bagels and croissants, gourmet sandwiches and delicious coffee. The menu also offers daily specials from hot dogs to BLTs to shrimp and grits! We pride ourselves on never using frozen products. Meats, bread (the croissants are purchased from Crepes and Croissants) and coffee beans are all locally purchased. Our coffee is micro roasted right here in Columbia. Our barista has mastered the art of coffee and will always provide you with the most delicious drink. Try it once and you’re hooked. It is full of flavor and made with love. And in case you still aren’t convinced, Cromer’s offers free Wi-Fi, free parking and a comfy couch to relax on.

Are you planning a party or celebration? We have the supplies for you! Balloons (sold in packs or we can blow them up for you), streamers, tablecloths, napkins, plates and so much more!

To kick your party up a notch, you can rent sno-kone machines, poppers and cotton candy machines. The steps are simple and easy to follow and your guests are sure to be impressed.

If you want to leave the popping and sno-kones to us or want funnel cakes or boiled peanuts, we would be glad to come to you and cater your event. We are unlike your traditional catering company, but with years of fair and carnival experience, we know how to make your event a tasty success!

Cromer’s is known for many things, but something a lot of people don’t know is that we offer extensive Advertising Specialties. With over 800,000 customizable products ranging from toilet paper to t-shirts to koozies, let Cromer’s help you grow your business.

From P-Nuts to Bubble Gum and Everything in Between

03 December, 2012

From the small store at 1235 Assembly Street, my dad began to realize we needed to add other products and if we were to add more products we needed more room. He leased the building to the right of our store as soon as it was available; cut a hole through the brick wall that separated the buildings and soon it was filled with concession equipment and supplies for cotton candy, popcorn and snokones. Then he added vending equipment and supplies. When my dad ordered that first truck load of bubble gum my grandfather was sure it was a mistake and they would never sell all of it! Imagine his surprise when it sold and customers asked for novelties and capsules to fill the machines as well.

The First POP of Cromer’s Popcorn

26 November, 2012

Not so long after moving into 1235 Assembly, my grandfather, dad and uncle decided to add a popcorn popper to our tiny sales floor. It was a free standing unit set in front of the water cooler near the window of the store. My sisters and I thought this was a wonderful idea and apparently so did our customers! Today, popcorn sales comprise about 15% of our revenue. The company that supplied us with that original popper remains the vendor where we purchase most of our concession equipment and supplies.
