Back to School!!

It’s that time of year! The weather is starting to cool down a bit (unless you are in Texas with us), summer is winding to a close and schools are starting up again! While I can’t believe summer flew by as quickly as it did, reality is setting in and I’m working to get in school mode – which means I’m thinking of school supplies, schedules, activities, back to school teacher gifts, and more!

While I want to give you a couple of ideas on how you can start the school year with a bang, I wanted to share a little bit of background on why I work to make even the most mundane, memorable! I am probably one of the luckiest girls alive, but my mom has a gift for making everything special. Whether it’s acknowledgement for a job well done or celebrating the passing milestones, nothing went uncelebrated and that included the start of school! Not only would we start off the first day of school with donuts in the morning, but we ended the day with a first day of school treat! This happened throughout all my school days, and continued into my college days with care packages sent periodically throughout the year! Sometimes, it was to wish me good luck on an exam or celebrate a passing holiday, but the best ones were always the packages that came out of the blue!

I can't help but carry on the tradition with my little one! We started the day out with a Pac Man doughnut and I'm betting you can guess what treat he will get after school! POPCORN!!

Check out some of the ideas below on how you can make the mundane of back to school memorable!

For the POPular Teachers in your life!

Great for those not so little ones away at College!

It's Official - Cassie's Le Popcorn Press Release

Cassie’s Frozen Yogurt announced that it has purchased Le Popcorn and Candy, a producer of gourmet popcorn formerly of Southlake.  Sharing the Cassie’s Frozen Yogurt flagship location at 603 South Main Street in Historic Grapevine, Cassie’s Le Popcorn now offers over 60 different kinds of mouth-watering, sweet and savory flavor combinations.  Free delivery is now available on all orders over $75.00 in a 10 mile radius. In addition, Cassie’s Le Popcorn can be purchased online at http://www.CassiesLePopcorn.com. The online site also allows customers to order their favorite popcorn with an in store pick up option to minimize their wait time. 

 

Cassie’s Le Popcorn uses unique ingredients based on popular flavor trends that cater to the desires and palettes of a discerning customer base.  Specialty flavors, such as Jelly Belly®  Very Cherry, made with real Jelly Belly® jelly beans, and Sea Salt Caramel with chocolate drizzle are examples of the unique treats found at Cassie’s Le Popcorn.  Cassie’s Le Popcorn’s wide array of colors and flavors can be customized to suit any occasion and make exceptional corporate gifts and party favors.  Customized popcorn bars for wedding receptions have become a favorite of area brides, and the popcorn of the month club is a welcome gift for all.

 

In June 2013, Cassie’s Le Popcorn earned Best Condiment honors at the fourth annual Gourmet Gold Awards at the Dallas Total Housewares & Gourmet Market for its Popcorn Marinade—individual packaged sauces for you to make your favorite Cassie’s flavors at home with your own popped popcorn!

 

As the founder of Cassie’s Frozen Yogurt, Cassie Uptmore has an entrepreneurial spirit and a determination for success.  Her brand of frozen yogurt has garnered intense customer loyalty in large part due to her creative recipes and impressive marketing ideas – many of which are inspired by Cassie’s husband, Brad.  Both Cassie and Brad are intent on bringing their limitless creativity to the popcorn business as well and fully expect their latest business venture to “pop” in both local and national markets.

Welcome to Cassie's Le Popcorn

Welcome to Cassie’s Le Popcorn! I'm so excited to be launching the Cassie's Le Popcorn website and blog and wanted to take this opportunity to give you a little bit of background. I opened Cassie’s Frozen Yogurt in March of 2010 in Grapevine, TX. To be honest though, I use the word "I" loosely, as the saying "it takes a village" really does ring true in this case. Although I may be the Cassie in Cassie's Frozen Yogurt and Cassie's Le Popcorn, the truth is that  I have a fabulous, smart, creative group of people behind me – my family!  So when I refer to "we", I'm often referring to my incredible parents and husband! 

 

Frozen yogurt has clearly been my passion  for the past several years, but I'm thrilled to be expanding my horizons with our recent acquisition of  Le’ Popcorn and Candy.  I felt confident that   Le’ Popcorn and Candy's  fabulous popcorn and  amazing reputation, combined with  the innovative and energetic team at Cassie's Frozen Yogurt would be an incredible match.  Since acquiring Le' Popcorn, I  have transitioned the name to Cassie’s Le Popcorn to align with the frozen yogurt side and moved the popcorn production to a more efficient location.   But most importantly,our A+ talented and dedicated team has developed new flavors, updated the packaging, launched a wholesale division and are in the process of developing a comprehensive and user friendly website! Stay tuned.....as many more great things are about to 'pop'!

 

I’m so looking forward to using this blog to share my love for delicious  popcorn, the creative ways you can enjoy and gift it, and, of course, how hard work, creative entrepreneurship and some fun can foster and grow a family owned small business!

 

Xoxo!

Cassie
