About Us

 

Welcome to New York City’s Favorite Kettle Corn Company


 

Why We Do What We Do?

The reason is YOU!

When you tell us how our amazingly delicious our kettle corn is – how it’s the best you have ever eaten and that you just can’t get enough – well, that’s all we need to hear.

 

What Makes Us Unique?

We make kettle corn ‘the old-fashioned way’. We hand stir each batch in a giant kettle right on the food truck! There is an art to making kettle corn fresh by hand. Our specialized cooking technique allows us to infuse the flavors into each kernel, producing mouth-watering kettle corn. We immediately cool it and bag it – to give you the freshest kettle corn you will ever taste.

We would never think of using automated machines to pop our kettle corn, nor would we leave our kettle corn in open bins to be exposed to the air.


History

Established in 2004.

Kettle Corn NYC started in 2004 at a street fair in NYC by a local hotel chef with a pop-up tent, a kettle and no idea where it was going to lead to. New Yorkers couldn’t get enough of our kettle corn, so we kept creating new flavors for them to keep coming back to each week at the festivals. Food Network got wind of what we were doing and featured us in their Unwrapped segment in 2009. In that same year, Bryant Park invited us to participate in their Holiday Shops event. People from all over the world could not get enough of our kettle corn. In 2011 WNBC featured us on their New York Live segment. The host brought some kettle corn back to the studio where they did a follow up segment around everyone as they could not stop eating it. In 2014 Fox 5 featured us on Good Day New York. By this time we had a significant following of people that kept demanding that we open a store. We built a Kettle Corn NYC Food Truck with the help of our Kickstarter backers, where we are available all over the city each day.
