As of the past couple weeks, Pop's Snack Shop in downtown Homewood is on the GrubHub app.
The shop is at 18063 Dixie Hwy. Outside of Pop’s, a sign that says “black owned business” is displayed. When walking inside the store, on the left side, the wall is filled with superhero action figures.
Customers can buy various candies, cookies, cakes, taffy grapes, a nacho platter and other similar items. And now, these items can be ordered and delivered to your home on GrubHub.
