I was in a restaurant where I received outstanding service from someone who clearly had been working long hours that day. I decided this was a great opportunity to “POP-it-Forward.” As I was waiting for the check, I asked someone to send my server to my table. All the other staff members thought I was upset and I was going to complain about her service, and make a scene.
The waitress was nervous as she approached. Imagine her surprise when she found out she was being praised with a bag of Doc Popcorn. She broke out a big smile. All the other staff membershad been lingering around to hear the drama and everybody was smiling as I left. It felt good to end someone’s day, and mine on a positive note.

My wife and I had been carrying around a couple of bags to “POP-it-Forward.” When we were in the Wallmart parking lot, we saw two children and thought they would be the perfect recipients. After asking their mother for permission and explaining to her our mission of creating smiles by delivering an all natural healthier snack alternative we gave the kids the bags.
I asked the kids if they liked popcorn and I was amazed at how big their smiles were. The Mom started asking me about the product being very specific about the use of GMO’s. I told her that Doc Popcorn was made with non-GMO corn and all-natural ingredients. I can’t tell you how good I felt inside seeing the huge smile on the Mother’s face. It was a wonderful experience.
