“Two years later I got a call from a guy saying that Isaiah Thomas wanted to meet with me. So I show up at this meeting thinking it could be a joke and Isaiah tells me that he’s just as passionate about popcorn as he is about basketball. For him, popcorn is about laughing, smiling, and watching The Green Hornet with his family every week. He asked if he could become a partner and an investor. I said yes. That’s when we changed the name to Dale and Thomas to celebrate the names of the world’s two most passionate popcorn lovers.
