When people hear the word “popcorn”, they typically think of a movie theatre. However, when the residents of Scioto county hear the word “popcorn”, they think of Jet’s Gourmet Popcorn.
Located right in Portsmouth, they have been serving our community for a little over two years now!
Jet and Tim Angel are the men behind who have changed our thoughts (and taste buds) on typical popcorn. They offer over 70 flavors of gourmet popcorn while also making various handmade chocolates, baked goods, and flavor infused sodas!
Tim and Jet started off selling handbags and jewelry at festivals, special events, and flea markets. They knew that they wanted to start a business that could appeal to more potential customers and once they came across the idea of popcorn, they ran with it
All of their gourmet popcorn is popped, caramelized, bagged, and sealed by hand right here in Portsmouth! They hand make all but a few of their gourmet chocolate and baked goods too.
They love hearing flavor suggestions and any helpful and creative ideas! They welcome people stopping in their shop to give them feedback.
COVID greatly affected Jet’s and their day to day productions. Jet and his wife have worked day in and day out to keep everything going. They expressed their gratitude for the support that the community has given them since the pandemic began.
Jet added, “We plan on being here for many many years to come to serve our awesome community with the very best gourmet popcorn in the world, we put our heart and soul into what we do and we couldn’t do it without the genuine love and support from everyone who walks in our door, likes and shares our posts online, mentions us to a friend, it’s our beloved community members who support us every single day that keep us so passionate about what we do and we can’t thank you all enough, you all mean the world to us!”
