In 1919, young Pop Kurguz left his farm in Kiev and set off for a new life in America. Soon after arriving in Columbus, Ohio, Pop married another immigrant, Marry, and the family grew. Pop farmed on Lockbourne road. He sold corn at his roadside vegetable stand all summer. We called his corn "Streetcorn". Many folk just helped themselves and left the money. Pop farmed until he was in his 90's and passed down the trade. Today, Kevin "Pop" Kurgis continues following his great grand-dad's farming practices and work ethics. Kevin "Pop" Kurgis has been popping, bagging, and selling popcorn since he was 8 years old. He is a young entrepreneur and at only 17, is the soul of the Naples Popcorn Company and our Gourmet Naples Popcorn.
Now, Naples Popcorn Company has expanded and is now able to ship to all around the United States. We still cook our popcorn in the same homecooked rustic way, and the flavors are all still handpicked to be delicious and fulfilling, but now you can have this taste regardless of where you are. Our gourmet Naples popcorn is second to none, and you’ll fall in love with what we offer regardless of your previous popcorn experiences.
