Case Study: Fisher's Popcorn
The Original Fisher’s Popcorn was started by Everett Fisher in 1937 when he mastered the recipe for his world-famous popcorn on the corner of Talbot Street and the Boardwalk in Downtown Ocean City, MD. Since then, the original store has been remodeled, and The Original Fisher's Popcorn is sold in various locations throughout the Eastern Shore. New recipes and delicious flavors like Old Bay©, caramel apple, kettle corn, cheddar, and so many more have become household favorites that have people lining up on the Boardwalk during Ocean City’s busy season.
With such an iconic brand to represent, the family-owned store is dedicated to showcasing all they have to offer to popcorn lovers near and far. How can you capture the deliciousness of The Original Fisher’s Popcorn in marketing? With a strategy focused on customer service and representing Fisher’s values of quality!
