How it Started
Reel Treats was born out of a love for the Oxford Drive-In where Angila Peters and Adam Shaw serve up delicious, real popcorn.
After the 2020 season, the demand for their delicious popcorn was still there. People really wanted to buy it for their own movie nights at home and to snack on throughout the week.
Seeing an opportunity, Angila and Adam were running the popcorn bizz out of their garage by November. They began delivering to Woodstock and its surrounding areas and the demand kept coming.
Running out of room quickly, Adam and Angila decided they would rent a space in downtown Woodstock to sell not just their popcorn but also retro candy, fun treats and more. And so, Reel Treats was born!
