Big Munchies comes to Popcorn Wagon

Staff report
Jorge Dolfo and his wife, Claudia, in front of Big Munchies, the new name of Aspen’s iconic Popcorn Wagon.

Aspen’s venerable Popcorn Wagon has a new owner.

Jorge Dolfo, an Argentinian who owns soybean, wheat and corn farms in South America, recently signed a lease for the Popcorn Wagon and the food cart in Snowmass Village. Both operations are called Big Munchies and serve burgers, gyros, quesadillas, doughnuts, popcorn and other belly-fillers.

The Aspen spot, located at the intersection of Hyman Avenue and Mill Street across from the Wheeler Opera House, will be open from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. during the high summer season, he said. It debuted over Memorial Day weekend.
