Local entrepreneur Adam Sinnard is fulfilling Jonesboro, Arkansas’ snack cravings, offering a delicious, all-natural, fresh-popped snack, with his recently opened Doc Popcorn at 3000 E. Highland Drive in The Mall at Turtle Creek.

Located in front of JCPenney, Doc Popcorn’s PopKiosk provides passers-by with a delicious, fresh-popped snack in a variety of all-natural flavors. Doc Popcorn pops its whole-grain kernels in 100 percent corn oil and offers a wide variety of distinctive flavors made from blends of natural ingredients.

Gourmet flavors range from cheesy cheddar and sweet butter to sinfully cinnamon and hoppin’ jalapeno. Doc Popcorn flavors also are gluten-free and nut-free with soy-free, dairy-free, and sugar-free options also available.

After earning his bachelor’s degree from the University of Iowa in business management with a focus in entrepreneurship, Sinnard spent the next five years working for Quiznos Corporate. Shortly thereafter, his entrepreneurial craving led him to open two Quiznos and one Cinnabon shop, which is also located in the mall.

“I really wanted to provide the mall goers a healthy alternative and after extensive research there was no question that Doc Popcorn was just that,” Sinnard says. “I am excited to introduce a brand that offers an amazing product and puts a smile on the faces of everyone who comes by.”

The new Doc Popcorn is the brand’s first in Arkansas and 50th location nationwide. The Mall at Turtle Creek opening marks the first of three units Sinnard plans to open.

“We are thrilled to welcome a driven and passionate individual like Adam into the Doc Popcorn family,” says Rob Israel, CEO and co-founder of Doc Popcorn. “As a franchise owner with Doc Popcorn, Adam can grow the fun-loving business throughout the area and provide a healthy, great-tasting product to consumers on the go in high-traffic venues.”
