It’s that traditional white corn that is served up nightly between April and October that started the loyal fan base. What makes it so popular? Aside from the smell hanging in the air on a warm summer night, the recipe is top secret and is the same recipe that was used back in 1968.
For Mike and his wife, Judy, the cart on Wisconsin Avenue served as a little extra for the family income.
“The extra from the popcorn stand allowed for family trips and other extras,” he says.
As Mike’s four daughters grew up, working the popcorn cart at night became a rite of passage.
“It was just something the girls knew they were going to do,” he says. “And today, the grandkids are working the stand and they like the money.”
More than 40 years later, Mike owns the business with his four daughters, Ann Bell, Mary Korth, Kathy Sultze and Sarah McElhone.
