Popcorn

National Popcorn Day! (Jan. 19th)

If you have ever been to the USAgencies branch down on the corner of 1st and Taylor you know one thing: we have popcorn!

As a member favorite, the popcorn has become a part of our legacy. Each morning we pop it fresh, for members to enjoy when they visit. With tomorrow being National Popcorn Day, we thought it would be fun to post a few little-known USAgencies Credit Union popcorn facts!

  • USACU purchased our now famous popcorn machine in 2005 after moving to the new location of 95 SW Taylor.
  • USACU pops approximately 165lbs of pop PER YEAR (wow!)
  • Over the span of 13 years, approximately 2,145 lbs. have been popped in our popcorn machine (literally a TON of popcorn!!). This is also roughly the weight of:
    • 2 adult male polar bears
    • 6 panda bears
    • 11 kangaroos
    • 18 octopuses
    • 75 gold bars
    • 30 Dalmatians
  • In 13 years, staff has bagged approximately 34,000 bags of popcorn!

Now that’s a lot of popcorn.

Celebrate National Popcorn Day by heading down to our branch to enjoy a fresh bag of popcorn with us! Bring a friend along and you’ll both be entered to win a Regal Cinema Gift Card & Candy Basket.
