  We work with many schools that receive large annual sponsorship funding from soft drink companies. With those sponsorship dollars, the soft drink companies have the expectation (a rightful one we might add) that the schools are not going to stock the concessions stand with products from the sponsor’s competitors. Cromer’s concessions and snack bar supplies will not cause any conflict with your school or event’s corporate sponsors! We’re not “corporate owned.” In fact, our family owners have lived and worked in the South Carolina Midlands for over 80 years. This fact should be important when considering concessions suppliers.

When you think of Columbia, most of the time you think of the University of South Carolina and their beloved Gamecocks, at least we do! On Saturdays we love to be right by the stadium witnessing as the city becomes practically gridlocked with traffic from near and far coming to watch the Gamecocks dominate the football field.  Cromer’s has been supporting the Gamecocks for as long as we have been around, but most recently, we support them from right outside the stadium at Gamecock Walk. Every home game, Cromer’s is out tailgating with funnel cakes, corn dogs, fresh squeezed lemonade,...

What makes Cromer’s different from other competitors? Sure you can go buy popcorn at your local grocery store, you could get coffee from a chain like Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts and you could get your party supplies from Party City, but why come to Cromer’s? Cromer’s is a local family business that started back in 1935. We talked about the beginning of the business with Mr. Julian Cromer and his peanuts in last week’s blog, but why should you come to Cromer’s for things other than our famous p-nuts and popcorn? Though Cromer’s has a big personality and representation around...

It's a Family Tradition

columbia cromer's Family family history Fun local P-nuts peanuts popcorn

In 1935, Julian D. Cromer sold peanuts and a variety of vegetables at his one-man stand at the Assembly Street Curb Market in Columbia, S.C. Every morning he packed up his produce and drove downtown to the market where he roasted his own peanuts. The fresh taste was a hit with the locals who were sick and tired of snacking on stale peanuts. By 1937, Cromer's one-man produce stand was booming, but his success could not go on unchallenged; another enterprising local set-up his own peanut stand directly across the aisle from Cromer's. To lure customers, the new competition promised the “Best Peanuts”...
