This week I have been serving as the Blackhawk’s version of the Wal-Mart greeter. Standing in front of the popcorn machine all day got me to wondering how many bags we popped a year. I know if the machine is broken or we run out, people get upset.

Working back from the number of cases we bought, I figured out that we popped 100,740 bags this year, and that doesn’t count the amount we sweep up and recycled (that last part is just to see if you were paying attention). Projecting further backwards, that means we have given away about 1,500,000 bags since we moved into this location. We are on our third machine and went to a larger model with the last one.

If you haven’t had our popcorn yet, come get some!
