Kettle Corn

May 28th, 2015

Velma’s ‘Wicked Delicious’ Kettle Corn is located in Buzzards Bay, Massachusetts. We travel with our popcorn machine to different locations in the New England area. We can also make kettle corn at your corporate function or event!

We’ll show you our Kettle Corn recipe. Feel free to burn a couple of your own pots and pans at home while trying to recreate it without a popcorn popper. It’s not easy!

Want to start your own kettle corn business? How does being your own boss in an all cash business grab ya? We’ve written a 83 page ebook which goes into detail on what you’ll need and where you’ll find it!

Popping At Corporate Events

Freshly popped kettle corn can really excite all your patrons senses at your next business outing. Typically you can “buy us out” for a day and we’ll supply kettle corn to anyone and everyone there. If you have a smaller intimate crowd, we can offer our full sized bags, but when you’ve got to impress 300-400 people at at time, or even up to 1,000 – we can scale our portions down to meet the demand. It’s great for team building/networking/incentive events, trade shows, opening ceremonies, theme parties, trade fairs and corporate meetings. Email us to learn more!

UNH Homecoming & Family Weekend Picnic

October 1st, 2017

We were hired to give out 600 (smaller) bags to alumni and students at the UNH Homecoming & Family Weekend Picnic on September 23, 2017. The only hard part was driving each way for two and a half hours.

Lasell College Fall Fest

October 15th, 2016

Lasell College is Newton was having their fall festival and wanted to give out kettle corn along with some other goodies. We served 523 little bags to everyone, had tons of compliments on our product.

Harvard College Fall Festival Event

October 9th, 2016

We were hired by the Harvard College to hand out kettle corn at their Fall Festival event. 900 students came by and tried out all of the food goodies they offered. Typically we give out a 64 oz bag, but we only had 3 hours to give everything out. We switched to 32 oz cups when the crowd started getting intense to keep up with the demand. Later in the day, people came back to the tent and requested only a bag. I guess the word got around campus that you NEED to get to the tent and grab a bag.

2015 Sudbury Colonial Faire Time Lapse

September 26th, 2015

So this is what our biggest day of the season looks like. I’ve blogged about the Sudbury Colonial Faire before – from 2008. We’ve been coming here for a bunch of years, so we’ve got a lot of regulars who return every year, wanting their bag(s). We popped around 400 bags, as you can see from the video. We’ve developed a system where we give ourselves a buffer against the crowds that form, wanting their bag. By making sure we have three layers of already popped bags on the table, we can then “fight back” the crowd if they start to surge. Years ago we didn’t do this and a huge line would form and put us behind the demand curve. We also calls this our (Star Trek) “shields” against the “enemy” of hungry customers (Klingons) who want their kettle corn NOW. All the other food vendors were getting swamped with customers, but Dan and I never got buried. I’m sure you lose business if you make a customer wait too long.

We’ve also been doing other events at this location for a while now, but we missed one event this year because we were already booked down the road in Framingham. About a week ago, we started to get complaints from some of our regular customers who went to this Sudbury event and didn’t see us there, ending up buying a bag of kettle corn from another vendor and ending up very disappointed with their product. Four different people schlepped all the way to Framingham to give us flack about somebody else’s product! I’m still amazed at how many people screw kettle corn up. I’ve gotten email from people who have bought my kettle corn business guide and THEY still insist of messing with the formula.
