Merritt-Pop Popcorn

For many Tennesseans, winter’s cold temperatures offer a perfect excuse to stay indoors and hibernate, which often leads to movie marathons – and plenty of popcorn. Thanks to Pulaski-based Merritt-Pop Popcorn, it’s easy to enjoy gourmet popcorn at home.

The family-owned company began in 1984 when John Merritt, who formerly worked in sales for Nabisco, and his youngest son, Mike, decided to see if any of John’s food-service customers would be interested in purchasing popcorn. The experiment was a success, and Merritt-Pop Popcorn has been thriving ever since.

With third-generation owners, the company continues to take pride in its quality popcorn created from kernels grown exclusively in the Tennessee Valley. To place an order or learn more about Merritt-Pop Popcorn, visit

      Sorry, since it apparently not sold in stores and I will not go to the trouble of ordering on line. You need to expand at least in Middle Tennessee stores i.e. Kroger

    I would like to see if I could get a 3 or 4 pack sold at Publix or Kroger for you. Do you have future plans for selling in stores?
