UNH Homecoming & Family Weekend Picnic

Sunday, 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.

Cape Cod Canal Fest in Bourne, MA

Monday, July 13th, 2015

We try out a new event – the Cape Cod Canal Fest in Bourne, MA. This spot is barely a 1/2 mile from my house – it’s also the same spot that a major festival used to be located: the Bourne Scallop Festival. I always wanted to pop at the Scallop Festival, but they already had a kettle corn vendor. They moved to a bigger location further out on Cape Cod and took their person with them. When these guys contacted me, I jumped right on it. All the vendors weren’t sure what would happen crowd wise. Fortunately a parade was happening on the first day and they went right past our location. As you’ll see in the video, the town of Bourne basically descended on us after the parade. We figured that since it was cloudy but warm on the first day, nobody bothered going to the beach and came here. The next day (July 5th) was a perfect beach day and hardly anyone showed up.

Willowbend Country Club Event

Friday, July 3rd, 2015

The Willowbend County Club in Mashpee, MA was having a member appreciation day and they wanted to have a carnival atmosphere, so they hired us to give out kettle corn to everyone who came to the event. These “coporate” gigs are great because we get paid up front and don’t have to deal with any money exchanging hands. They were expecting a crowd of about 1,000 people, so we figured that 350 bags should outta cover anyone who wants one. We basically split our regular sized bags in half to get to that kind of volume. They also offered fried dough and raw oysters, along with the yummy BBQ hamburgers, chicken and ribs. The crowd really responded to us being there and we enjoyed making our product for so many happy faces.

42nd Annual Braintree July 4th Celebration

Saturday, June 27th, 2015

The town of Braintree held their 42nd Annual Fireworks at the high school a week earlier than everyone else so we jumped on board. We sit around for 6 hours, sell $100 worth of kettle corn, then just as things start to get good, it rains.

Waltham Riverfest 2015

Saturday, June 20th, 2015

We did alright here. It’s harder to sell to completely new customers and we had plenty of other food competition.
