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

This was a special event to get into for me personally. More than a decade ago, I used to come to this event just to buy ketle corn from “Grandpa’s Kettle Corn”. After seeing all the hub-bub over kettle corn, I decided to get into the business! Alas, grandpa has since retired – I was telling everyone that he lost this gig in a bar bet.
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!

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!
