C. Cretors & Company
In 1893, Charles Cretors‘ imagination led to an invention, the first commercial popcorn machine. That invention brought innovations that led to an industry. We’re proud we revolutionized, and continue to lead, the concessions industry. Whether we’re inventing the popcorn machine or perfecting the hot dog grill, being the leader in technical innovation means that from food service equipment to food processing systems, snacking starts with Cretors.
For five generations and counting, the Cretors family of inventors, craftsmen, manufacturers,distributors, and customer service professionals has worked out of what we call The Shop. There, the great-great-grandchildren of Charles can be spotted talking to shop with a machinist who’s been with the company for decades. And, there, we blend the best of our legacy of technical innovation with our continued promise of quality craftsmanship to provide the best value and most reliable concession equipment in the world.
