Lee Feldman / Co-Founder of Pops Corn, Inc.
Entrepreneurship comes easy to Lee Feldman who at the age of 11 launched “Lee’s Magical Entertainment,” performing magic tricks at local parties. A native of Plantation, Florida where he had early on discovered a calling for sports, Lee graduated Nova High School in 1995 at the same time holding the positions of Captain of both the Varsity Basketball Team and the Varsity Cross Country Team.
It was in 1999 that the direction in which Lee was headed was clearly illustrated when he was awarded an Associates of Science Degree in Marketing Management from Broward Community College. Since that time his personal mantra, “the desire to make everything I do extremely successful” became evident when, with younger brother, Lonnie, the Feldman team launched Pops Corn, Inc., a visionary concept of bringing a high-end, nutritionally right, popular fun food to the residents and tourists who flocked to the new Weston Town Center. That was in 2001. Since that time, Pops Corn, Inc. has grown to include operations in Pembroke Pines; Pembroke Lakes Mall and Fort Lauderdale; Fort Lauderdale Beach.
A member of the Rotary Club of Weston, Florida from which he received the Service Above Self Award, Lee also serves on the Board for Nova Southeastern Young Entrepreneur Council and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. In 2010 Lee was honored with being a Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Honoree. In 2012 & 2013 Pops Corn was awarded the “Small business of the year” by the Fort Lauderdale Chamber Of Commerce. In 2013 Lee was awarded the “Small Business person of the year” by the Fort Lauderdale chamber of commerce. Despite the fact that Pops Corn, Inc. continues to take most of his time and vision for its future development, Lee still has time for his hobbies, reading, writing, and playing in adult basketball leagues. Some kids never grow up!
