Default Wells Fargo popcorn machine.

My dad bought the old Wells Fargo building in town to move our offices to and wants to find a Wells Fargo Popcorn machine to put in the foyer area.

When he first started his business 20 plus years ago he and his long time friend and partner went to Wells Fargo bank to try and get a loan to build his business. They had both grabbed a bag of the complimentary popcorn and the loan officer told them they both needed to exit the bank and leave the popcorn on the counter because their credit wasn't up to his standards.

Fast forward to now, it's a successful multi-million dollar company and he wants his own popcorn machine. LOL

So if anyone knows where one is that'd be awesome. TIA

Might look on Ebay. Somebody might be selling one. Good story!

I did a search and can't seem to find a Wells Fargo logoed popcorn machine. My guess is that you will need to buy a machine like the one they had then have a graphics person put the WF logo on it. I couldn't even find a pic of said machine, but cool story nonetheless!

Awesome story but the popcorn machine is the proverbial bird in the air gotcha.

A classy knockoff of a Texas Historical Marker stating the history of Wells Fargo being in the building and its new owners makes for a better story.

After watching dirty money on Netflix about how shady WF was, they deserve to go under.
