The people behind the popcorn
Having owned and operated a service-based business for the last 24 years, they both desired to do something new in the recent years. In June of 2015, a beautifully renovated retail store in the historic downtown of West Bend provided the perfect place to begin manufacturing and retailing the family’s caramel corn and other treats to a friendly community.
Both grew up in the Milwaukee area and had their foundations in business formed while in college. Married in 1988, they went on to have three sons who have been their inspiration to have some fun while working hard. Their greatest joys at Laughing Mountain are seeing the smiles on people’s faces when they step into the shop and exclaim, “It smells so good in here!” and then engaging them in conversation over popcorn samples.
In their free time they love reading, cooking together, spending time with family and friends, and watching NFL football. Okay, really the Green Bay Packers.
