Our Story

In 2017 in the Midwest a family owned business Popus Gourmet Popcorn  was created because of our love for all things POPCORN by  “Real Popcorn Lovers” and we take pride in creating sweet and savory flavors in small batches using the finest ingredients.  All of our popcorn is consistently coated; hand packed in resealable bags so that you may keep your flavors as fresh as possible.


Our Mission Statement

We will bring the most delicious popcorn experience to all that visit our shop, or our website, and anyone we meet along the way . Our team is family oriented,  we want our employees and our guests to feel like they are part of our family when they are enjoying our products.


About Tracy – Owner of Popus Popcorn in Tinley Park

My name is Tracy Smith and I own the Tinley Park location of Popus Gourmet Popcorn (Popus TP as we like to call it).  I was in the corporate world for over 30 years when I met the owners of Popus Gourmet Popcorn.  After 6 years of friendships, 4 of them watching them grow their business, they asked if I would be interested in partnering and opening my own location.  Knowing how amazing the product and the mission they had were how could I say no!  I joined the Popus family in August 2021.  This is when we signed the lease and started building our TP location at 6741 South Street, Tinley Park IL 60477. 

I am a wife of 35 years, a mother of 4 amazing children and a gramma T to 7 grandchildren which I wake up every day feeling blessed because of!  Family is most important to me, and you will often see my husband, kids, grandkids, sister, brother & many nieces and nephews in my shop. Family business is exactly what you will find at Popus! 

I know that you will love our popcorn which is made daily in small batches, freshness is important to us!

The plan is to do amazing things with Popus TP and all the Popus Gourmet Popcorns to follow, as part of this partnership was work together to start franchising!   I hope that you come in to see us and think of us for any of your special events – parties, weddings, showers, reveals, or any celebration that you want to serve a delicious snack!  I really can’t wait to meet you!
