The A-list Hollywood actress is reportedly opening Yummy Pop, a gourmet popcorn shop that serves, what else? Popcorn – but with a twist, with her French husband, Romain Dauriac.
The couple plans to open in other locations if their sweet and savory recipes are a hit.
A spokesman for Johansson has said that the Paris shop would close up shop after its Saturday initial opening to make small adjustments with lessons to be learned from customers before the grand opening, which would likely be before the end of the year.
The shop is located in Paris’ district of the Marais at 35 Bis Rue du Roi du Sicile. The business venture is a “dream” for Johansson, who, according to her Los Angeles based spokesman, loves popcorns, adding that the popcorns were freshly made with on-the-spot seasonal ingredients.
The 31 year old “Match Point” star will be offering a selection of delectable gourmet flavored popcorn to customers when her shop opens, added her spokesman.
Here’s a sneak peek at the different popcorn offerings:
Truffle Parmesan and Sage (the actress’ favorite)
Real Vermont Maple (daughter, Rose’s favorite)
Real Vermont Cheddar (husband, Dauriac’s favorite)
Sea Salt and Olive Oil
Strawberries and Cream
Chocolate Covered Strawberries
The couple collaborated with Ducks Eater and Harry’s and Ida’s chef, Will Horowitz in New York, on the savory offerings. Dauriac’s sister will reportedly be the manager of the shop.
The timing of the shop’s opening could not have come at a better time for both Johansson and Paris. According to a new research, the city is presently experiencing a surge of food trends influenced by America, all from coffee shops to the classic hamburgers and brunches, with about 70 percent of restaurants including them on the menu.
