ROYAL OAK, Mich., April 11, 2013 – The Detroit Zoo's "pop" culture now includes Detroit Popcorn. The new concession offers an assortment of gourmet popcorn, including the company's signature caramel corn, a recipe that has been used since its founding in 1923. Additional menu items include cotton candy, fried fruit pies, funnel-cake bites, beverages and other treats.

Detroit Popcorn, which opened March 30, is located across from Rackham Fountain in the space formerly occupied by Kijiji Café. The concession is managed by Service Systems Associates (SSA), operator of concessions, retail and grounds services for the Detroit Zoological Society.

"The Detroit Zoo and Detroit Popcorn are the perfect combination, two Detroit traditions that have been popular with the community for decades," said SSA General Manager Stacie Linn. "We are happy to partner with this superb local business."

Detroit Popcorn is currently open Thursday through Saturday during regular Zoo hours and will be open daily beginning Memorial Day weekend.

The concession at the Detroit Zoo is Redford, Mich.-based Detroit Popcorn Company's first free-standing location. For information, visit www.detroitpopcorn.com.
