#propermixer rolls into Leeds today and lands in Piccadilly Gardens in Manchester on Friday 3rd of May – you can’t miss the mixer!!
Colourful popcorn maker, PROPERCORN, is touring the country in a 33ft pink cement mixer to mark the ten-year anniversary of its inception. In 2009, inspired by the TV programme Top Gear, co-founder Cassandra Stavrou famously used a car spraying kit in her mother’s kitchen to coat her very first batches of popcorn with oil, before tumbling them in a refashioned cement mixer.
PROPERCORN was launched by Cassandra and co-founder Ryan Kohn in 2011 and has since grown from kitchen start-up to global snacking favourite. Best known for its vibrant collection of popcorn, PROPERCORN will be transforming its concrete mixer with an unmissable popcorn pattern and signature splash of colour. The tour begins on 26April and sees the PROPERmixer travel more than 500 miles from London to Leeds, Manchester and Birmingham.
The PROPERmixer will reach Manchester on 3 May, handing out PROPERCORN’s 8 flavours of popcorn to people in Piccadilly Gardens. Anyone who spots the PROPERmixer on its travels and shares a picture with @PROPERCORN could even be in with a chance of winning a year’s supply of popcorn!
Cassandra Stavrou, co-founder of PROPERCORN, said: ‘The humble cement mixer has become a real emblem for PROPERCORN and of the resourceful and creative approach we’ve taken since day one. We can’t wait to share our snacks with people across the country and couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate our team’s passion for popcorn than with a nationwide road trip in the PROPERmixer!’
