Each week, our Proud to Manufacture in Michigan team picks from more than 1,000 member companies to name a Featured Manufacturer of the Week. Our latest winner is Pop Daddy Snacks!

Featured Manufacturer of the Week


Born from a love for microwave popcorn, the Pop Daddy founders wanted a healthier way to feed their obsession. After researching and experimenting, Pop Daddy Snacks quickly became a huge hit. Today, they pop, season and distribute 10 unique popcorn flavors along with eight boldly seasoned pretzel flavors out of their 14,500 square feet location in Whitmore Lake.

As the company has continued to grow and gain attraction, they now are sold in over 4,000 retail locations in the US and over 2,000 in Canada. Their guilt-free gourmet flavors include original, kettle, dill pickle, butter, garlic parmesan, white cheddar, chipotle BBQ, hot sauce, cinnamon sugar, and many more.

Congrats Pop Daddy Snacks for being PTMIM’s Manufacturer of the Week!
