About Carmel Corn Cottage
Welcome to Carmel Corn Cottage, one of Nashville, Indiana’s oldest specialty shops.
This tiny cottage with the bright red roof opened in 1978 and has a long history of making popcorn and caramel candy. As you walk along the sidewalk before you get to the front door, you can hear owner Jim Rispoli’s welcoming greeting “Hello! Come On In! as he beckons visitors and locals to come inside and see what he has cooking.
Jim is one of the friendliest shop owners in the Village of Nashville. Jim bought the business in 1997 mainly because he loves people and he has been making popcorn and friends ever since. In addition to the amazing flavored popcorn, the shop is filled with old signs, unique popcorn trinkets and photos of customers over the years.
