Fisher's Popcorn History

Way Back in 1937...

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.

In the 1950's...

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.

In the 1980's...

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.

Today...

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.

Wedding Treats!

This was such a wonderful surprise to our guest as wedding favors! Thank you so much!!

Great popcorn!

We really enjoyed this popcorn when vacationing at Rehobeth Beach, DL. It was worth the order price!

One of the few good things about Maryland

There is no better popcorn. Whether you get it in Ocean City or online, it is still the best. It's like Christmas anytime.

Met my expectations and more.

Excellentante!

All the popcorn here is fantastic, but the butter-flavored is the best I have ever had. Beats movie theater popcorn even with the extra syrup butter you can put on. Don't know how I will stop ordering! Excellentante!
