How Long Does It Take to Get Dippin’ & Poppin’?

Depending on your location and needs, after Discovery Day & Training at the Corporate Headquarters in Paducah, you could be Dippin’ & Poppin’ in 3 - 6 months! You work directly with our real estate team (more info below) on site selection and lease negotiation. Then our design and construction team steps in to lead the build-out. All the while, you are working with your Region Managers and the operations department to get all your supplies ordered, accounts set-up, and start the staffing process. Before you know it, your opening date has arrived and your Region Managers will be there to train you on-site for your first opening week, making sure you have all the tools you need for success.

"Simple Business Model"
Steve D.
Co-Brand Franchise Owner, Connecticut

“After 20 years in the postal service, I wanted a career change where I could run my own business. For me, it really was love at first bite - as soon as I tried the Doc Popcorn product, I wanted to share it with my entire community. It came full circle for me when I opened a Doc Popcorn kiosk in the amusement park I grew up visiting.  When I was offered an opportunity to also sell Dippin’ Dots, I was excited to provide both products and give mall-goers the ultimate snack destination.”
