Sisters Jillian Brookman and Jennifer Lord have a passion, a passion for popcorn that started at a young age when their grandmother would make it as a treat. “Popcorn has always remained something special to us, more than just a snack food”, said Brookman. Years passed and they happened upon a gourmet popcorn store during a family vacation. They had a crazy idea; a gourmet popcorn boutique? Sadly life got in the way; they grew up, began careers (as a nurse and social worker) and started their families. But the lure of the pop never left these native St. Petersburg sisters. After denying the inevitable for years they recently launched Salty Sisters Gourmet Popcorn located in Treasure Island. “It was only a matter of time, this was really our fate, to create gourmet popcorn,” said Lord.
Salty Sisters offers 30 flavors of gourmet popcorn. Their popcorn is hand crafted in small artisanal batches daily. Their products are made from the only finest sourced ingredients, including real cheese and gourmet chocolates. They also specialize in corporate gifts, weddings and events. “It is a true family business and we take great pride in our popcorn and customer service, said Brookman. But these socially conscious sisters see the bigger picture as they support a number of local charities including those which help fight hunger and food insecurity.
