Ronmar Tasty Popcorn, “Chicago-style” is thriving at the Uptown Janesville mall location serving our customers with 9 varieties of flavors. We specialize in caramel corn made from scratch with our own recipe.
We use mushroom popcorn seed that is vegan, non-GMO, gluten-free popped in 100% coconut oil.
We pride ourselves on making our caramel from scratch. Our popcorn is perfect for birthdays, holidays, weddings, or just an afternoon snack while watching your favorite movie.
We also, make eight other delicious flavors including, two types of cheddar, chocolate caramel, cashew caramel, buffalo spicy blue cheese, sour cream and chive, and our cheese and caramel “Chicago Style” mix. During the pandemic, there were times when we thought that business wouldn’t survive but we made it through! We thank God for loyal customers who love popcorn and who supported us during the pandemic. This Kiva loan will help us make upgrades and purchase equipment to expand our selection of popcorn. We get asked weekly if we have kettle corn and we would love to add that to our selection. We will also use a portion for marketing so we can create brand awareness throughout the state of Wisconsin.
My husband Ron and I moved from Chicago to Janesville, WI in 2010. We went from a big city to a small one and missed having the food choices we had in Chicago. One of those was Chicago-style popcorn. This led us to start experimenting and test-making caramel corn at home. We tested and remade our caramel month after month from scratch until we perfected the taste and consistency. We knew we had a really good recipe. We had an opportunity to be vendors and sell our caramel corn at different events in Janesville. Our customers would often remark that they couldn’t make caramel corn as good as ours, but we didn’t share the secret recipe that we worked so long to perfect. This all led to the opportunity to sell our famous caramel corn out of a store location.
