Bubba-Bug Popcorn: How It Started
Lemonade stands just don't work when settled on a country road. So, Ethan (Bubba) and I (Bug) decided to tackle what our family knows best - farming - and grow popcorn. For 11 years now, we have worked to provide great popcorn as snacks and gifts to our customers. Although, Bubba stepped back to focus on his own acreage, he and I still squeeze in some sibling bonding while planting, picking, shucking, shelling, cleaning and packaging our annual crop. Together, we wish you all the best and thank you for supporting our popcorn stand!
This is our favorite part of having a business - giving back. We have donated more than $2,000 to local organizations like Teen Turf (Amboy), United Way of Lee County, Sauk Valley Community College's Impact program, and the KSB Hospital Foundation.
This year we give back to the organization that received our first donation that sparked #GivingTuesday with Bubba-Bug Popcorn. Teen Turf of Amboy, IL continues to serve as the go-to place for kids after school and during summer break. Dedicated community volunteers cultivate a safe space for all students and serve families in need. We are lucky to have Teen Turf as a part of our community!
Thank you for helping Bubba-Bug Popcorn give back this holiday season!
