Dippin' Dots & Doc Popcorn co-brand store opens in Puerto Rico
Grand opening celebration scheduled for April 13
Posted April 10, 2019
When Dippin' Dots acquired Doc Popcorn in 2014, the company said it would be looking at distributing Doc Popcorn products through its existing franchises and vice versa. That's exactly what's happening in Puerto Rico, where the local franchisees are turning a Doc Popcorn store into a co-branded store by adding Dippin' Dots to the location.
The new co-branded franchise location is the third Dippin' Dots/Doc Popcorn store in Puerto Rico, all owned and operated by local franchisees Angel Diaz and Jorge Marcano. After 20 years of managing construction together, the duo decided to bring the popcorn concept to Puerto Rico and has since tacked on ice cream to all three.
"We couldn't believe how long lines were to buy Doc Popcorn when we visited the continental U.S., and we're thrilled to add Dippin' Dots to our third store," said Diaz in a press release announcing the new offering. "We know shoppers will enjoy the treats we have year-round at this location."
The franchisees will celebrate with a grand opening event April 13 from 1 to 3 p.m. Guests who attend will get a free small serving of both Dippin' Dots and Doc Popcorn. And throughout the day, guests can participate in face painting and register for a chance to win free Doc Popcorn and Dippin' Dots for an entire year.
By combining two snack and treat brands in one space, the dual-concept store offers both sweet and savory snacks. Worldwide, there are more than 20 other Dippin' Dots and Doc Popcorn co-branded locations, with more in the pipeline.
