Our Proud History
Founders Royal Turner and E.J. Guidry saw the need for a supplier to the concession food industry and formed a partnership on March 28, 1994 by the name of Fun Time Foods, Inc. After only 2 years in the business Mr. Guidry decided to retire and sell his share of the company to Mr. Turner and his wife Joie. In 1996 Royal and Joie Turner became the sole owners of Fun Time Foods Inc. As a proud family owned and operated company Royal and Joie set out to build and grow a thriving wholesale distributorship of quality concession food products. Over the next 17 years their hard work proved successful landing distributorships from companies such as Gehl’s Cheese, Fancy Farm Popcorn, and National Fruit Flavor, as well as growing sales to an all-time high. Due to health issues in 2013, Mr. Turner decided to sell the business. In July of 2013 Bradley Ricks purchased Fun Time Foods Inc. and reopened it as Fun Time Foods, LLC. We remain a privately owned company with the same vision and commitment to the concession food industry as Mr. and Mrs. Turner.
Today we operate as a hybrid version of a supplier and manufacturer, in the same location as the business originally started. We are a “Premier” full-line concession food and equipment distributor, and FDA approved manufacturer. We have added additional process equipment to our manufacturing division allowing us to keep up with demand and storage of our products. We are excited to launch our e-commerce website in early 2015 to provide easy ordering, checkout, and delivery to our local and long distance customers.
In 2014 we proudly became the Southeastern Regional Distributor for Fancy Farm Popcorn. States of distribution include Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Kentucky. We look forward to providing a premium quality product to our customer base in these areas.
In 2014 we also became a local in house distributor for Southern Snow Manufacturing products and Hampton Farm Peanuts.
In October of 2019 we decided to enter the Gourmet Popcorn manufacturing, wholesale distribution, and retail storefront arena.
Our handcrafted gourmet popcorn is truly, "delightfully delicious!"
Our company was founded on Integrity, Dedication, and Valuable Customer Service.
The people in our organization make the difference. Our dedicated and experienced employees are what separates us from the competition.
We care about your business success and truly appreciate our valued customers. “Thank You” for your loyalty and support over the past 19 years.
To our new customers, “We are excited about the opportunity to earn your business!”
