Pop N Go Appoints Etcetera Food Sales to Manage School Program

WHITTIER, CA--(Marketwire - July 11, 2007) - Pop N Go, Inc. (OTCBB: POPN) is pleased to announce the appointment of Etcetera Food Sales, LLC, to manage Pop N Go's sales in the school food service industry throughout much of the country.

Etcetera Food Sales, LLC, owned by partners Paul H. Schmid and Richard M. Trotter, specializes in identifying unique school food service lines that benefit the wellness policies in place in our nation's schools. Utilizing an established national broker network which solicits a school market that feeds over 15 million lunches daily in over 30 states, Etcetera combines the uniqueness of the concepts of its food manufacturers with the credibility of the brokers who have established relationships with the buyers in this industry to achieve maximum sales. Schmid, former long time food service director for the city of Philadelphia public schools, and Trotter have a combined forty years of experience in the school food service industry.

"Our broker network is very excited to have Pop N Go as a phenomenal new concept to bring to our school nutrition buyers," said Trotter."As wellness policies in our nations schools limit the buyers' selection of a la carte items to sell to our youth, Pop N Go's nutritious self-vending operation will be positively received in our market segment. Our strategy is to identify schools and universities throughout our confederated broker network over the next six months to introduce Pop N Go's unique, healthy, vending product opportunity. Exposing Pop N Go's nutritious, great tasting popcorn to the youth of our nation will establish a brand awareness that will benefit Pop N Go's long-term success."

"We are looking forward to working closely with Etcetera Food Sales' nationwide broker network to expand Pop N Go's penetration into the rapidly growing school market," said Mel Wyman, Pop N Go's CEO.
