Patrick Thornton is the owner of the Pop Pop Shoppe company – 5 gourmet popcorn stores in Texas & Arkansas, USA.
In 2018 he bought commercial vortex popcorn machine Grand Robopop220 for his factory.
We met at the Las Vegas CinemaCon expo 2018. I asked him about his story: how he started business at the age of 25, how he decided to buy equipment, where he got money (500.000$ for factory and 250.000$ for equipment).
He runs Gold Medal, AC Horn and Robolabs machines. Hope, his story will be useful for you!
