A gourmet popcorn company moved from Wyoming to Holland last week.

Founder Benjamin Robinson and his family opened Robinson’s Popcorn in 2018. The business previously was located at 1034 28th St. SW in Wyoming but moved to 1191 Washington Ave. in Holland last week. The popcorn shop shares space with the Big Apple Bagels franchise the Robinsons co-own with David and Sue Wathne.

“I am excited at the opportunity to conduct business on the lakeshore,” Robinson said. “Holland is a niche community with a great history for supporting small businesses. Even more, it will be great to connect with the flood of tourists, beginning with Tulip Time in May through the end of summer, as they host a vast number of vacationers from around the world.”

Robinson’s Popcorn is known for the flavors Cha-ramel, Caramel Squirrel, Oreo Popcorn and Jala-Ring and over the years has served popcorn at launch parties, church gatherings, birthday parties, meetings and conferences, and other events throughout West Michigan.

Before raising the funds to start the popcorn business through the sale of T-shirts four years ago, Robinson already was an entrepreneur and owner of a Big Apple Bagel location.

He said the business will continue to serve popcorn throughout West Michigan, and the company also ships product worldwide.

Robinson also said he has a passion for supporting other entrepreneurs. In 2020, during the beginning of COVID-19, as minority-owned small business were suffering from the lack of business, Robinson organized The Black Business Showcase at Woodland Mall in Kentwood, a two-day event that generated over $200,000 in sales for 80 companies. Then, last fall, Robinson organized United We Sell, a business showcase held at the Delta Plex Arena in Walker.
