Whether you plan on making popcorn for the family or as a business youíll need plenty of popcorn containers to shovel out the mouth-watering treat. You have a wide variety of choices when it comes to containers including small 1oz bags and large, holiday themed 6.5 gallon tins to offer your fine butter, kettle corn or gourmet style popcorn to friends, family and customers. The type of container you choose will depend on the amount of people you are serving and the occasion since many people like to send large gallon tins for holidays and birthdays.
If you operate a street vendor popcorn cart or stadium concession stand machine then it makes sense to offer 1oz, 1.5oz and 2oz size paper popcorn bags or similar size boxes. People buying popcorn at a stand or carnival tent usually wonít have room for a full bucket or tin size container and stocking such large items is a hassle anyway. With easy to stack paper bags and cardboard boxes that can be assembled as needed you can have an easy dispensing system in place to optimize your business. The amount of popcorn you can fit in a 1oz bag or 1.8oz box is usually enough to satisfy the hunger for a treat and if isnít theyíll always be back for more.
If you operate a movie theatre or stadium concession stand where customer are more likely to be seated for awhile then you may consider adding larger size containers such as 32oz popcorn buckets and 5oz bags. People at baseball games and the movies plan on staying in one place for a few hours so it makes sense to offer larger quantity sizes that can be sifted through during games and films. Itís usually a short walk back to the seats so having a large bucket or bag isnít too much of an inconvenience.
Still another option for providing great tasting popcorn, especially gourmet popcorn, is colorful and festive tins. Usually used around the holidays and for special occasions tins are available in a wide variety of sizes from 1-gallon tins up to 6.5-gallon tins that can be filled with a single flavor or sectioned off for four separate flavors. Available in solid colors such as red, blue and black you can also find popcorn tins in festive Halloween and Christmas decorations and even flags and stripes for 4th of July parties.
