4 Popcorn Kiosk Success Stories [2022]
Start A Popcorn Kiosk

A popcorn kiosk is a mini food stand that sells ready-to-serve steamed corns. You can open a popcorn kiosk indoors or outdoors.

To start a popcorn kiosk, find a high-traffic shopping mall and rent front shop space. Popcorn kiosks can also do well if located at the movie theater entrance. You can make popcorn in bulk and sell it to wholesalers or supermarkets.

Here are some real life success stories of starting a popcorn kiosk:

Case Study

Hi! My name is Katie Young and I am the owner and operator of Klondike Kettle Corn. We are a company that sells a ready-made gourmet popcorn throughout the Yukon Territory and now online across Canada.

Now that our company has grown we have been able to give back to our community through sponsorships and donations. You will often see our kettle corn being served at various sporting events across town, including the Yukon Quest and a number of Mountain Bike races, as well as film festivals and other school events.
