Colorado Popcorn Company
320 Oak St. Sterling, CO 970-522-7612
On behalf of the Logan County Chamber of Commerce, Executive Director Glenna Aurich-Phelps (right) presented Colorado Popcorn Company and owners Breanna Kelsch & Zachary Souffrant with the Business of the Week honor.

Two friends, Kathy Littler and Sherry Brammer became business partners and purchased a local Sterling popcorn business. After being partners for a couple of years, it was time for a change for Sherry, so Kathy took the reins of their business as the sole owner and proprietor of the growing business. 
At the time, Colorado Popcorn Company was manufacturing and selling five different flavors of popcorn in a small store along Main Street in downtown Sterling, Colorado.
Soon thereafter, the company moved to a larger facility in order to expand. Although the original five flavors were very popular, there was a demand for new specialty varieties. Customer suggestions and ideas were used in creating new recipes, and Colorado Popcorn is now producing over 30 flavors of gourmet popcorn! Additionally, Kathy added helium-filled balloons to the local retail store to complement the popcorn!
After more than 30 years of successful operations, Kathy Littler decided it was time to retire from the popcorn business. Her hope was to find someone with the same passion for popcorn that had sustained her work for the past three decades to take over the reins at Colorado Popcorn. In addition, they had to be willing to continue the legacy by keeping the manufacturing in Sterling. She did find someone that fit the bill and in September 2017 turned the reigns over to Zachary Souffrant and Breanna Kelsch. 
The business was started to provide the best quality gourmet popcorn at an affordable price to northeastern Colorado and online at www.coloradopopcorn.com They create over 30 gourmet popcorn flavors currently being sold throughout the state of Colorado in numerous grocery stores, gift shops, and hotels. 
In 2017 they expanded with an online store at www.coloradopopcorn.com to complement their brick and mortar store. 
This summer they upgraded their candied popcorn machines to increase their production capability to 100 gallons of candied popcorn per hour. In addition, with their new equipment they can now produce Kettle Corn. They plan on doubling their square footage and expanding into the west suite located at 320 Oak this November and will be completing a remodel of their manufacturing area and retail store in the spring of 2020. 
Colorado Popcorn Company specializes in: over 30 handmade gourmet popcorn flavors , popcorn by the bag, gift boxes, Popcorn tins filled with up to 3 flavors, and due to a national helium shortage, they are the only place in Sterling that carries helium filled mylar and latex balloons. They offer local delivery for popcorn and balloons within the city of Sterling and can ship popcorn to anywhere in the USA. (Last Christmas they had popcorn ship as far as Hawaii, Canada and even Europe.)
They also sell Colorado Candy Company products such as peanut brittle, hard candy or thin ribbon candy for Christmas.
