The Popcorn Bag

Entering The Popcorn Bag is like stepping into a popcorn lover's dream. Movie posters adorn the walls while classic films play on the television, and dozens of colorful popcorn and candy concoctions are arranged amid bags, tins and gift baskets.



Owner Tim Voigt said the shop's business has been strong since opening at 8765 Spring Cypress Road, Ste. F, Spring, in December 2011. A Houston-area resident for more than 30 years, Voigt has a business background, but he had no prior experience with food.



"[The idea] was just suddenly out of the blue," Voigt said.



The Popcorn Bag offers nearly 40 flavors, which are constantly rotating, including savory flavors, such as garlic parmesan and dill pickle, and candied flavors, such as cheesecake and cotton candy. The shop also offers several different flavor combinations.



"I'll adjust different flavors throughout the year," he said. "I'll put in this one and take out this one. If a flavor's not moving right now, I'll pull it out, put it on the shelf and bring it back later in the year."



Voigt said the store houses an industrial popper that can pop up to 48 ounces of popcorn seed at a time. He uses dozens of combinations of spices to create specific flavors.



Customer input has been crucial to the introduction of new flavors, such as the recently created Italian delight, a flavor Voigt said reminds him of Italian cuisine.



"When we opened the business, we got flavors from a friend," Voigt said. "From that point, it's just been the customers and word of mouth. The customers come in and say, 'Hey, why don't you try this?' or 'Why don't you try that?' I'll put two and two together and come up with a new flavor."



Voigt said much of the shop's business is seasonal, with the holidays producing the most significant sales for the store. He said he capitalizes on holidays by offering certain flavors, crafting different color blends and offering specific gift sets.



Before Easter, The Popcorn Bag was clad in the holiday's colors, with bunnies and eggs placed throughout the shop.



"I would almost say that any business you talk to, they're going to say the busiest time is of course the holidays," he said. "So, you're constantly looking for other avenues to subsidize that."



In addition to popcorn, The Popcorn Bag offers a wide array of candy, including taffy, chocolates and several fruit-flavored candies. Customers can purchase candy by the bag, taffy by the pound or purchase gift sets with candy and popcorn arrangements.



Voigt said he does not have any specific ideas for future flavors or offerings, but said he is always on the lookout for customer requests as he values their input.



"I love dealing with customers," he said. "I truly believe that customers will make or break you. So their input is extremely important."
