Mini Jetstar Popcorn Popper vs. Gold Medal Popcorn Popper

Looking to buy concession stand equipment? You'll most definitely want to get a popcorn popper because what type of concession stand doesn't sell popcorn? It's cheap to purchase and you can mark the price way up, and it's easy to make provided you have a commercial popcorn popper. If you've looked at commercial models, you have probably found that there are many available, but deciding which one you need can be somewhat of a challenge, especially if you've never bought one before.

Before buying a commercial popcorn popper, there are several things you'll need to consider before settling on a specific model. You'll need to take into consideration the size and space requirements of your establishment as well as how much popcorn you think you'll need. For those just starting out, there are two brands and models that offer an excellent option and these are the Mini Jetstar Popcorn Popper and the Gold Medal Popcorn Popper. Both are excellent choices but offer different features, which we'll go over here today.

If you run a concession stand, you need to have popcorn, but depending on the size of your establishment and how much you serve, you may not need to have a top of line equipment, but you do need something that is built to last and will serve you well until you are ready to upgrade. Either of these machines will do the job. When you do select your popcorn maker, be sure to remember to get all your other popcorn supplies to so that you can get started making money with popcorn immediately!
