New Harkins Food Truck Takes Movie Popcorn on the Road to Phoenix | Featured Articles
PHOENIX (3TV / CBS 5) – While theaters struggle to fill auditoriums, Harkins has found a creative way to make money. The local theater chain takes its popcorn on the road.
Harkins launches their new Harkins Popcorn Truck, available to deliver movie theater popcorn to your party or private event. Along with the freshly popped popcorn, customers can also enjoy theater-style snacks like nachos, hot dogs, soft pretzels, and cotton candy.
This is not the first strategy Harkins has devised to stay afloat during the pandemic. Last year, the chain offered curbside popcorn sales in some locations. Drivers could park outside the theater and buy a “party bag” for $ 10. A Harkins employee, wearing a mask, would bring the bags directly into the car.
And, as everyone remained attentive to social distancing, Harkins also began offering private movie nights. You can rent an entire auditorium for yourself and up to 20 guests for a cost of $ 99 to $ 149, depending on the movie.
Right now, the Harkins Popcorn Truck is available for private catering, including birthdays, weddings, fundraisers, and corporate gatherings. And soon, the truck will “appear” at events in Phoenix and the state throughout the year. For more information, visit Harkins.com.
