Among corn farms in central Iowa, you'll find Paragon, a family-owned company that started out making popcorn machines years ago. Their goal back then was simple: just be the best. We achieved that goal using the newest technology of the day, the best materials, and dedicated, local employees who take real pride in their work. In the following years, Paragon built their business, expanded their market to 43 countries, patented innovations and introduced the world's first four-ounce popcorn popper. Paragon also began manufacturing cotton candy and snow cone equipment, and started stocking a full line of concession supplies.
