At Minocqua Popcorn and Puffs, all of our popcorns are made suing the finest ingredients obtainable; that means real butter, brown sugar; and in our cheese corn, real cheese. We use only the highest grade kernels and make ALL of our products in small, well controlled batches in our Minocqua,WI factory. As the industry leader in quality, we sift our popcorns THREE times before they reach our customers. We do this to eliminate as many of those pesky un-popped or half popped kernels as we can. Sure it costs more for us to make our popcorns this way, but we know it's the only way to get the consistency, flavor and texture just right.
Minocqua Popcorn and Puffs is rapidly being recognized nationally as “The Gourmet Popcorn and Puff Company”. It is proudly owned and operated by Jim and Nancy Wescott along with their three children, Avery, Madison and Brie and now also by our two wonderful nephews, Eric and Alex Howard, who operate the San Diego, CA location..
Jim, a.k.a. “Dr. Popcorn” has a Ph.D. in chemistry and a great deal of manufacturing experience. He loves to “tinker” in the factory, which he fondly calls his lab, constantly improving the processes while making new and exciting products for all to enjoy .
Nancy, has a B.S. in marketing and loves to come up with crazy ideas and new flavors; Dr. Popcorn’s chemistry background allows him to make some of her ideas a reality.
Avery a business graduate from UW-Milwaukee, oversees our social media and website, Madison is a student in the UW system and Brie, a seventh grader in Minocqua, helps wherever we need her, in both the store and factory.
Our two awesome nephews, Eric and Alex, were very successful entrepreneurs prior to joining the family business and are now operating the San Diego, CA location. Come pay them a visit too.
