Through hard work, perseverance and faith, you can live your dreams.
In 2011, The Most High gave Sandra Polk the vision to start her own popcorn shop. About the same time, a gourmet popcorn shop opened in Huntsville, so Polk and her husband decided to wait on opening their own shop to support the new venture.
The idea for opening a shop began weighing heavily on her mind again – so much so that she didn’t sleep for months. Polk’s mother promised to help her bag the popcorn if she would take the leap of faith. Before following through on her offer, her mother passed away, but she was determined to press on with her dream.
From August 2015 to January 2016, she began selling her popcorn at the Limestone Flea Market. She named her business after one of her granddaughters, Zion. She was also inspired by the hymn, “We’re Marching to Zion.”
Polk later operated out of a trailer her son found on a road near Harvest. She cleaned the trailer, parked it in Harvest and began selling her goods from there.
