popcorn with a purpose

Learning real business skills.

School students get "taught to the test" which leaves them without the skills they need to excel in the modern world.

We remedy this problem by teaching skills not tested for in school like kindness, empathy, optimism, entrepreneurship, leadership, and passion, to name a few.

Think of us as a platform servicing young entrepreneurs.


Meet our POPrietor. The popcorn kid.

Mark R. Wieder, Esq. is the POPrietor of Popped Culture. Mark left his career as an attorney to get things poppin' elsewhere!

Leaving in search of passion and purpose in his life, he now helps local youths tackle problems they face at home with the help of foreign concepts he learned abroad.

Now he sells Popcorn With A Purpose.®


Poppin' with a purpose. One kernel at a time.

Popped Culture is a social enterprise. We pop and sell sweet, artisan popcorn with unique flavor combinations while mentoring youths.

Our young POPerators get paid to sell their popped products directly to customers, to businesses, and to online shoppers while they learn business and life skills at our stand, in their homes, and on their phones.

We even help them start their own businesses.


Our Popcorn And popped products.

We pop and sell popcorn, caramel corn, and kettle corn with unique flavor combinations.

Most of our products are sweet. Most are also vegan, including our caramel corn! They're all vegetarian, gluten, tree nut, peanut, and soy-free.
