Our Story


It all started on a farm. As the daughter of farmers, one of our founders was raised on a farm in Washington State. At the age of seven she began selling sweet corn at her family's roadside produce stand. Meanwhile her mother, our other founder, was busy both farming and bringing up her youngest. In the summer of 1998, this mother-daughter team burst into the Kettle Korn business at a farmers' market. Things have been popping ever since!

From our regular site at the Beaverton Farmers' Market we've expanded to corporate events where we provide our popping and concession services. We also distribute product to retailers and coordinate with non-profit organizations seeking to pop more profits from their fundraisers. We helped Intel celebrate their 35th birthday with a pop-pop-pop and we burst onto the scene of a movie set popping prop-corn™ for the Ring Two. Nike occasionally invites us to pop in for their farmers' market and some special events. In addition to our usual summer market sites you may find us stirring things up at school bazaars or at Tanasbourne in the winter. Today we have experience popping and serving warm Kettle Korn at events attracting anywhere from a few hundred persons to several hundred-thousand persons.
