Everett Fisher went into business with his wife's cousin, Edmund Pusey. They opened Pixton's Popcorn on the Boardwalk at Talbot Street, named after Edmund's wife's maiden name. Everett was in charge of operating the popcorn stand from day to day. After some time, Edmund Pusey decided to leave the business, and Everett Fisher continued on making his delicious caramel popcorn under his own name, using his secret recipe. From the beginning, his son, Donald Fisher worked with him side by side, and even handled the operation of the stand while his dad was drafted into military service during WWII.
Donald Fisher and his wife Calvina (above center) started their family and had 3 children, Cindy, Martha, and Don Jr (above right). The Fisher family ran the single stand on the boardwalk in Ocean City together. The store was always under the watchful eye of Donald, making sure every batch of popcorn was made just right.
Martha and her husband, Bill branched out and started their own store in Fenwick Island, DE at the corner of Route 54 and Coastal Hwy. They have 4 children, all of which started working in the store at a young age. Three of them continue in the business today. Together the family runs their stores in Fenwick Island, Bethany Beach, and Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, independent from the original Ocean City location.
Fisher's Popcorn is a well known staple of the Delmarva Beaches. Both the Ocean City, and the Delaware branches operate and thrive independently, maintaining the family's tradition of careful quality control and phenomenal popcorn. We at the Delaware Fisher's Popcorn have continued to grow by selling our famous popcorn wholesale to specialty food and grocery stores around the region. Our popcorn is now available for sale at over 2,000 stores nationwide, but it's all still made right in our stores at the beach. You can find our popcorn in a store near you here.
