Viewers of Dragon’s Den on CBC and lovers of fun and delicious snack food know the story of Bad Monkey Popcorn. Two brothers, Joseph and Fabio Zeppilli, quit their lucrative jobs in finance and law to take a chance as entrepreneurs. Over five years, they’ve built their brand into a cross-Canada sensation, selling millions of bags of flavoured popcorn. They’ve built their success by following their hearts, taking chances, thinking and acting unconventionally, dedicated customer service, and fearless prototyping. And they’ve payed that success forward, making a point of mentoring other young entrepreneurs. The result is ongoing success and growth under the challenging shadow of the ongoing Covid-19 crisis.
