  • The Advanced Membrane Control Panel and Touch Screen Control Panel are the latest technology

    Advanced Popper Controls

    The way you pop popcorn is about to change. Concession industry leader, Gold Medal Products Co. has just announced the launch of two major developments in popper technology: the Advanced Membrane Control Panel and the Touch Screen Control Panel.

    As part of the PopClean® Elite Series Poppers, these technology advancements will bring significant benefit to operators. The Advanced Membrane Control Panel is engineered to be convenient, sleek in design, and aid in ease of operation. The membrane panel contains easy-to-understand icons and operating indictors. The Advanced Membrane Control Panel will come standard on any PopClean® Elite Series Popper ordered after September 3, 2019. There will be no price change from the previous pricing on the PopClean® Elite Series Poppers.

    The Touch Screen Control Panel has been launched as an optional upgrade. Intuitive, visually appealing, and functional, this technology optimizes the popping process like never before. Using a seven-inch touch screen display, it is simple to train employees, program recipes, reference videos, and access back-of-house data.

    President of Gold Medal, Adam Browning states, “Advancing popper technology means delivering a greater value to our customers. Venues like movie theaters, stadiums, and other high-volume locations rely on having the best popper performance. Now, with the Advanced Membrane Control Panel and Touch Screen Control Panel, Gold Medal has raised the bar. This is the type of technology that translates into key advantages for our customers.”

  • Introducing the ReadyServe™ and ReadyPop™, the self-serve solutions for popcorn.Introducing the ReadyServe™ and ReadyPop™

    Movie theaters, stadiums, and other high traffic venues face challenges of long lines at the concession stand. Two of the top concerns are saving on labor and keeping customers satisfied. Now, Gold Medal has introduced two new products geared at minimizing labor and giving customers convenience. The ReadyServe and ReadyPop provide innovation as self-serve solutions for dispensing popcorn.

    Gold Medal's ReadyServe™

    ReadyServeis an impressive 48-inch popcorn cabinet featuring a dual auger system, allowing two customers to fill their cups or bags at once. Operators simply fill the cabinet with popcorn, then individuals can dispense popcorn using a convenient push-button system. It also includes an integrated butter topping dispenser and eye-catching LED backlit sign.

    Gold Medal ReadyPop™

    A popper and self-serve station in one, ReadyPopis the simplest way for operators to offer popcorn. The 16-oz kettle pops the popcorn, which is then held in the cabinet until it is dispensed. Operators can pop multiple batches early in the day, then customers are able to fill cups and bags without impacting any food safety concerns. The compact footprint allows ReadyPop™ to conveniently fit into any available space. Convenience store, grocery, and other retail customers can enjoy a grab-and-go snack plus a fresh in-store experience that engages the senses.     

    President of Gold Medal, Adam Browning shared his enthusiasm about the launch of these products stating, “Making it easier to serve popcorn opens up opportunities for so many different venues. Thanks to the input of a thorough field-test team, ReadyServe™ and ReadyPop™ truly meet the immediate needs of the marketplace. Managers will be able to enjoy valuable benefits including, low start-up costs, minimal labor, and attractive profit margins. Plus, they can offer customers an experience that they can’t find at competitors.”
