Where should I set up my kettle corn operation?
Anywhere there are people! Watch the Entertainment section of your newspaper; if there’s going to be a crowd, they’re going to be hungry – be there! Be creative; think outside the box! Here’s a list of ideas to get you started.
- Store grand openings
- School events
- Outdoor concerts
- On the corner of a busy intersection
- Craft shows
- “Bike Night” at your local bars/restaurants
- Car shows / Drive-ins
- Busy gas stations
- Locally owned farm markets or grocery stores
- Music festivals
- Farmers’ Markets
- High School football games
Be creative! We once popped for a lady who wanted to put bags of fresh kettle corn in the motel rooms for her out-of-town son’s wedding guests! I made cute little tags printed with the bride and groom’s name and closed the bags with a pretty ribbon. Needless to say, our kettle corn was a huge hit! What about popping little bags of kettle corn for wedding, bridal shower or baby shower favors?
