Gold Medal Products Co., based in Cincinnati, best known for manufacturing concession equipment and supplies, will be at NAFEM to discuss how retailers can
capitalize on one of the fastest growing segments in the salty snack category: popcorn. Gold Medal officials note that grocery stores that offer a fresh alternative with
in-store gourmet popcorn shops can benefit substantially.
The company’s product line includes poppers, cooker mixers, tumblers, merchandisers and more. Plus, they offer a large variety of flavor options from cheese
pastes to glazes and shake-on flavors.
At the show, officials will be highlighting the simple set-up options available
from the company, from full sweet shops to stand-alone kiosks to integration with
existing bakery or deli operations. Their experts will be on hand to help retailers
select the best set up for their needs.
“A natural complement to deli, bakery, salad bars and similar offerings, gourmet
popcorn enhances the in-store shopping experience,” says Chris Petroff, senior sales
manager. “The sights, sounds and aromas engage shoppers’ senses and encourage
impulse buys.” Petroff adds that Gold Medal offers retailers additional sales opportunities including party trays, custom packaging for special occasions and a private
label product that produces profits of 70-80 percent.
