There is no better way to gauge the quality and success of a franchise organization than to hear from franchise owners themselves. Hear what our POPrietors have to say about their Doc Pocporn experiences including training, real estate location support, store design and build, and getting up and popping.

Doc Popcorn Franchise owners undergo an extensive five-day hands-on training program where they learn the secrets of our perfected natural ingredient combinations as well as everything else necessary to run a successful business and become a certified POPrietor.



“The Doc Popcorn training was really comprehensive. We learned everything from business management to popping all the delicious natural flavors. The team is knowledgeable—they are great teachers and they made it really fun!”

Bob and Kimberly Anderson, POPrietors

“Training was fun! One of the best parts for me was meeting my fellow POPrietors. I made friends there that I will value forever. ”

The Doc Popcorn team is hands-on in site selection and lease negotiation, ensuring our POPrietors get the best location under great conditions.

"Doc Popcorn’s help with the lease negotiation process will save us over $50,000 over the course of our lease term. We couldn't be more grateful."

Bruce & Ellen Burr, POPrietors

"Doc Popcorn was instrumental with my lease negotiations. They coached me into a great lease and taught me a lot of inside negotiation "secrets" to ensure I was not being taken advantage of.  In the end, I locked in a great deal and now have valuable skills for future negotiations."

Cary Cheung, POPrietor

"I want to thank Doc Popcorn and founder Rob Israel for flying out to the east coast through a nasty January blizzard to spend the day assisting me in finding my first Doc Popcorn location.  As a new Doc Popcorn franchisee, it’s encouraging to know we have a team of professionals behind us who care and take a personal interest in our success!"

Bill Gains, POPrietor

Euniesha Davis, POPrietor

"Before I was even open, Doc Popcorn’s head of operations came to my location to help me get up and running in a timely manner. Knowing that DP was willing to do that for me and my wife really confirmed our decision to choose Doc Popcorn. The Doc Popcorn team genuinely cares about my success. It really made us feel like part of the DP family."
