Popcorn, cotton candy, snow cones: Alabama business treats the world

This post orginally appeared on the blog of our partner, The Export-Import Bank of the United States.

Summer is coming and across the country that means state and county fairs. And cotton candy. And snow cones. Or maybe a trip to the air conditioned movie theater to beat the heat. With popcorn, of course. If any of these stir your memory or make your mouth water, you, and people around the world, can thank Great Western Products.

Great Western, a 65 employee company headquartered in Hollywood, Alabama has been supplying concession products and related equipment for over 50 years, or as their slogan says, “Snack Pros Since Before Zip Codes!”  It started with popcorn and over the years expanded into other fun foods. Today, the company is completely vertically integrated and controls every aspect of their products from raw materials to packaged products, ensuring the highest quality snack fare.
