Snack foods like popcorn are very popular treats that are typically consumed and enjoyed at entertainment events like movie theaters, multiplexes and other entertainment themed venues where people view attractions. However, a long standing problem has always been securing such large portions of delicious snacks that are commonly served in very enlarged or clumsy receptacles. There has seemed to be very little to no

consideration for the ergonomic handling of such receptacles given the fact that human beings naturally have varying sizes, ages, shapes and abilities to properly and securely hold enormous containers of snacks or popcorn. Furthermore, there are obvious limitations of what a human being and their hand(s) or arm(s) can properly carry and hold adequately and easily.

Present receptacles do not take these limitations or needs of ergonomic proficiency and comfort into consideration, instead they focus merely on the quantity of popcorn being sold as their primary marketing attraction. The greater the quantity of snacks, popcorn or food offered the more appealing the sale becomes, but after the point of purchase it is the consumer who is left with the unenviable task of holding, carrying, transporting and securing this enormously clumsy container of popcorn, snacks or food.

Sanitation and clean health food handling and preparations, standards, and regulations are also major issues in the concessionary and food industries, or anywhere food is being handled, served and/or sold. It is commonplace for movie theater or any entertainment venue employees to prepare, load, serve patrons loose filled snacks and food like popcorn into large tubs, container or receptacles without gloves.

The problem of bacterial and cross-contamination becomes very present when a movie theater staff member or any entertainment venue employee grabs a full container of popcorn with their bare hands while their fmger(s) overlap the top opening, rim or perimeter of the container of popcorn or [food, and their hand(s) or fmger(s) come into direct contact with the food and/or popcorn they are about to serve a patron. Said employee(s) could have easily handled a previous cash transaction, dirty surface, detergent, agent, rag, mop, or come into contact with a previous patron who was carrying germs, bacteria or disease and now is directly holding a popcorn receptacle in a way that they are also touching the popcorn, food and contents that will be ingested by patrons who will possibly become exposed. The same is true with patrons among their own group(s) of companions, friends or family members when and if they try to grab any food, snack or popcorn container by its top, rim, or opening.

They will always risk of spreading germs, diseases and bacteria when they grab popcorn or snack receptacles with unclean hands over the rim, perimeter, or opening of the container. Therefore, a handling structure, process and assembly in necessary to not only properly grab such enormous receptacles, but do so comfortably and securely without touching the popcorn or food contents within.

Another problem is positioning the receptacle of popcorn or food once inside the movie auditorium or entertainment venue. There is no current practical, simple or easy solution yet to appropriately affix or position a receptacle of popcorn or food to a customer’s seat, chair, arm rest or cup holder conveniently and unobtrusively.

A movie or entertainment venue customer sits down to watch a film with their various snacks, drinks and large container of popcorn with no place to properly position. There is a need to place this large bulky popcorn container near one’s self securely, neatly, and in a way that it’s not interrupting the comfort and enjoyment of one’s self and others meanwhile being conveniently accessible. Furthermore a customer should not be forced to continuously pass around the container of popcorn which is distracting to the entertainment event, nor should they worry about tilting, kicking or knocking over the container of popcorn or food or worse, setting it down on a possibly dirty and/or bacteria ridden floor.

Movie theater seats and other entertainment venue chairs are already limited in space in order for businesses and companies to try and maximize revenue by

accommodating a greater potential of customers or patrons. Therefore, it is necessary that such gripping structures, and fastening systems that would be affixed to movie, theater, or entertainment venue seats/chairs, arm rests or cup holders, are implemented or become part of the popcorn or food receptacle in a user-friendly, easily accessible, non- cumbersome, simple and fabricated or implemented with, into or onto the popcorn or food receptacle with a minimal, sleek, and efficient construction without adding significant material(s) waste or clunky, non-ancillary obnoxious parts.

Additionally, no current popcorn or food receptacles currently on the market provide a sleek, well conceived, proficient product that allows for easily convenient handling by persons and affixing the said receptacle to any surface, chair, seat, arm rest, cup holder in a practical process that is simple, easy, or favorably applied, stationed or accessible.

What is needed is a process and deliberate structure of a popcom/food or snack receptacle with intended consideration to the improved holding, handling, gripping, transporting, carrying and then stationing, positioning, securing, and favorable placement of said receptacle. And, the receptacle should be constructed, formulated, function and have features that easily, effectively and proficiently allow for greater holding, handling, gripping, transporting, carrying and then stationing, positioning, securing, and favorably placing said receptacle to any surface, system or formation in a more ergonomically friendly, beneficial and usefully constructed way that multitudes of persons of different sizes, shapes, heights, weights, genders, capabilities could more easily use it and benefit from its usage, holding, carrying and placement abilities, features and functions.

Fig. 1 depicts an embodiment of a popcom/food or snack receptacle 102 with handle(s), handling means, system, apparatus, handling instmment(s) 100 and/or method of grasping, holding, clutching, carrying, and/or conveying said entire receptacle.
