Kernels Popcorn Cost Comparisons

About Kernels Popcorn

The business of a Kernels franchise is unique. When you acquire a franchise outlet, you acquire a business and not just a store. Why? Because each of our stores has the ability, as a micro-manufacturing facility to sell not only our extraordinary line-up of products over the counter, but also to reach thousands more customers through wholesaling and corporate sales. The potential market for Kernels Extraordinary Popcorn is huge. It can be as big as the franchise owner's vision, persistence and commitment. A Kernels franchise is a business that requires and responds to the personal input and attention of the owner.
