    The beginnings of our shop and popcorn franchise

    It all began when a young entrepreneur opened a tiny confectionery on North Main Street in downtown Decatur, Illinois. The rest is history.

    The Popcorn Business is Booming

    Walking into a Del’s Popcorn Shop is like taking a step back in time. You’ll still see us popping our corn, making fudge or cooking caramel in beautiful, large copper kettles. We temper fudge on a large marble slab and coat and season popcorn in a glass enclosed case. Now we seek like-minded individuals who understand that taking hints from an era gone by is an excellent way to build a thriving business for years to come.

    Delectable Reviews

    Just had my first taste of Del’s Popcorn and it was fabulous! You have got to try the CharmelTM (cheese and caramel), the Caramel (and the variations with nuts), the Chocolate is to die for. I’m so glad they told me they deliver because I don’t live close by and when I need a popcorn fix or to send a delicious gift, I now know where to go! – Chad M., TripAdvisor
    A must-stop if you’re visiting Springfield. Cute, quaint downtown store filled with vintage charm. Lots of unique details – Clair J., Yelp
    I had to write a review with how impressed I was with Del’s today. I live in Texas and called over the phone to see about making an order for delivery. Highly recommend Del’s for gifts instead of flowers. – Kelsey M., Facebook
