HOW DID IT ALL BEGIN?
Oogie’s Gourmet Popcorn was the brainchild of a small group of college friends who wanted to create a healthy snack alternative. A couple of self-professed foodies who loved snacks – particularly popcorn - but could never find exactly what we were looking for in terms of flavor.
So, we gathered in our kitchens in Denver, Colorado, and experimented with gourmet seasonings and ingredients until we came up with recipes we loved. The result? Oogie’s Gourmet Popcorn with all-natural cheeses and spices, some of which had never been used on snack foods before - let alone popcorn.
We sampled it to all our friends and family, figuring out how to get it into stores, etc. We were up at 3 am every morning making it, bagging it, delivering it, sampling it and doing all the business stuff every night. Then we’d do it all again the next day. Once we knew we had something special, we took it to retail.
As for the name Oogie, it’s a nod to a college roommate who’s no longer with us. His nickname was Doogie, which evolved into Oogie – a silly sounding moniker that finally stuck. Oogie was a quirky, colorful character who inspired us to laugh and have fun at every corner. Plus, Oogie’s is a name that brings a smile to your face every time you say it. Go ahead; say it right now and see what happens!
