About Us

Walk into The Great American Popcorn Company in historic Galena, Illinois and you will always be greeted with a friendly smile and a fresh, warm sample of our famous Old Fashioned Caramel Corn. More than likely you will be welcomed by the loud and friendly owner himself, Dave Lewis, who started Great American Popcorn Company with his wife, Cathie, in 1994. After two kids and nearly 22 years of a successful business, Dave and Cathie never grow tired of seeing their fun business grow and are looking forward to keeping it in the family by one day passing it along to their children, Victoria Lewis (Manager) and Zach Lewis.

With well over 350 flavors created over the years and an average of 50 different flavors in store daily, you are sure to find your favorite! When you are given an abundance of options between Cheezy Caramel, French Vanilla, Spicy Italian, Kitchen Sink, Bacon & Cheddar and much MUCH more, how could you not leave with a unique gourmet treat?

We use only the finest and freshest quality ingredients to create our delicious gourmet popcorn treats. By making only small batches of a single flavor at a time, this guarantees that you will always enjoy the freshest product possible.

Not only are we known for our delicious gourmet popcorn, but we also offer a wide variety of other goodies. Handmade chocolates, candies, homemade fudge, Chocolate Shoppe ice cream, Door County Coffee and much more. As Dave always says, "You got a vice, we got a fix!".
