When Old Town was a sandy field with only a construction trailer on the corner, Byron and Norma Sutton decided to open a popcorn store in the town that was building up to be a fun place with a ‘50’s rock ‘n roll theme and a great variety places for gifts, souvenirs, food and entertainment.

The Kissimmee Popcorn Company was indeed the very first store to open in September, 1986. Shortly there after, a previously leased but yet to be occupied corner place became available. Byron became enthusiastic about the place because it was one of a few that had a 40 ft. ceiling. Why? Because you could hang an airplane from it!! Byron, a born aviator and trained pilot for both the military and the commercial airlines, didn’t have an airplane to hang from that ceiling but that wouldn’t stop him! So, they leased the space and went shopping. There just so happened to be a collector of vintage aircraft at the local Kissimmee Airport and there they found a 1916 Fokker bi-wing airplane. After taking it out for a test flight, the decision was easy. Then came the question: what goes underneath it? But then, every pilot wants to own a bar, right? So that was an easy answer.
