R. Frank Popcorn
Located in St. Louis County, just north of Lambert International Airport is the current home of C. R. Frank Popcorn & Supply. The business has been at this location since 1991 and has been a family owned and operated company since it's inception in 1925. Although business focus and ownership has changed since 1925 two things remain the same: The business is family owned and operated and all the merchandise sold is quality merchandise. C. R. Frank Popcorn shares the spotlight with it's sister company Select Drink, Inc. Select Drink is a Coca Cola distributor in the greater St. Louis area. This explains why our 800 number spells out" COKE". The products sold by Select Drink are Coca Cola Syrups, Dr. Pepper Syrups, Frozen MM Juices, Superior Coffee, Slush Puppie, BIB Juices and canned soda. Since most of these products are easily acquired in local markets they were not included in this site. However, if you have an interest in these products don't hesitate to contact us. We'll be happy to assist you.
C. R. Frank Popcorn distributes both commercial and home equipment to make "Fun Foods". Whether you want to do popcorn, snocones, cotton candy or funnel cakes we can help you get started. You'll be surprised if you are new to the business at the profits you can make.
Selling the supplies for "Fun Foods" is a fun business! We have a showroom that is open to the public Mon. - Fri. 8 AM -4:30 PM. The showroom is open on Saturdays from 8:30 AM - 11:30 AM, Memorial Day - Labor Day and the month of December. Appointments may be made for other times not listed. We also have rental equipment available to those of you in the greater St. Louis area. If you are ever in the area feel free to stop in and say "Hi".
As we said before we are family owned and operated. Jack and Marie, the owners, are there everyday. Their daughter, Susan and son, John along with their spouses, Dennis and Sharon are key people in keeping the business on track. On any given day you may run into one of 5 grandsons or 2 granddaughters helping out as only those small hands can do! Many of our local customers have watched these guys grow from infants to teens. It's a great business where we can personally know our customers and they personally know us.
We strive to offer only quality products at fair prices. There are some brands that we simply do not encourage people to buy because we know from experience that they will not get their money's worth. Before we offer a new item we have to be sure that we believe in it enough to sell it. The following quote is one that should be kept in mind no matter what you are considering purchasing.
"The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten."
We gladly accept Mastercard, Visa, Discover & American
