About Us

We are Chef Inspired Popcorn Company

PopcornChef Inspired Popcorn Company started with a few bags of popcorn and a softball game.  The owner of Chef Inspired, Lizette Rivera, had just been diagnosed as Celiac.  In her quest to find alternate snacks, she one day walked into a gourmet popcorn shop.  She and her teenage daughter have always been passionate about popcorn, creating some flavors at home.  One day she found a gourmet popcorn shop and she fell in love with the product.  She decided to bring this popcorn to her daughter's softball game for all the teammates to share.  The girls loved it!  Before long Lizette, a corporate professional, begin toying with the idea of distributing this product.   After a lot of research, sweat and a few tears, Chef Inspired was born. Our popcorn is popped fresh in our store daily.  Today Chef Inspired conducts point of sales at its store front, local retail partners, and the internet.  As part of our mission to be a community focus business, Chef Inspired Popcorn also works with schools, sports clubs, dance studios and other groups that seek fundraising opportunities. Chef Inspired also creates fun community awareness campaigns on social media such as #popthevote.  We invite you to join the fun of being a community and follow us on our social media pages.
