In the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic that reshaped the world, Brianna, a recent graduate, faced the formidable task of navigating the job market in this new reality. With a desire to stay close to her hometown, she embarked on a quest to find a business opportunity. During this search, a close family friend presented the concept of gourmet popcorn, which ultimately gave rise to our beloved gourmet popcorn company. Our journey commenced in 2021 as Pop-A-Licious and blossomed into Bri Marie's Gourmet Popcorn by 2023.
In 2021, Brianna completed her studies in Business Management at Quinnipiac University, stepping into a world forever transformed by the pandemic. Initially, her vision was to pursue a career in the bustling business realm of New York City, commuting from her hometown of Blauvelt, much like many others from her community. However, everything changed when a loved one was seriously injured the summer after graduation. Driven by a desire to provide support and care for her dear one during their recovery, Brianna made the decision to remain close to home. This event also triggered her own battle with anxiety, leading her on a personal journey of healing.
Recognizing Brianna's need for a familiar and secure environment in her hometown, a close friend suggested exploring a creative and enjoyable venture, such as the world of gourmet popcorn. Intrigued by the idea, Brianna embarked on an adventure, experimenting with various flavors and tirelessly perfecting each one. It all began in the comforting confines of her family home's kitchen, with her mother Kerri by her side, supporting her in this new endeavor. In 2021, Pop-A-Licious was born, achieving local success through its physical store, fundraising initiatives, and special event orders.
By 2023, Brianna aspired to expand her gourmet popcorn enterprise and share her culinary expertise with a broader audience beyond Rockland County. This marked the birth of Bri Marie Gourmet Popcorn as she continued to innovate and bring her delectable creations to popcorn enthusiasts far and wide.
