Our Story

You may be wondering what makes Peter’s Kettle Corn (PKC) different from the rest.  There are three main elements that shape the company – The Love, Inspiration, and Passion for what they do.

Peter’s Kettle Corn began with brothers John and Peter’s first exposure to the classic snack at the local fairgrounds. The sweet and salty snack sparked a love and craving that lingered all year long, which inspired them to make their own homemade kettle corn.  It wasn’t as easy as expected, but after countless attempts, they perfected their all time favorite snack. The recipe was just right – It wasn’t too sweet or too salty! The love and quality ingredients that went into each homemade batch definitely made their kettle corn an instant hit with their family and friends.

As Bay Area natives, John and Peter were exposed to diverse flavors found in various parts of their community. Street food was ingrained in their upbringing, and they encountered the best and most authentic cuisines at the local, mom-and-pop establishments.  The close relationships they shared with local business owners inspired them to take their love for popcorn to the next level and share their homemade kettle corn to a wider audience.  Summer of 2007 was when PKC was born. At that time, they were operating on a part time schedule attending just a few events a month.  Fast forward to today, they now operate seven days a week attending events not limited to farmers’ markets, festivals, private and corporate events.  In addition, they also carry a great line of products made specifically for gifts and favors.

There’s a whole lot more to PKC than just great kettle corn. John and Peter grew up with a humble background and understand the meaning behind giving thanks. They frequently partner with schools, student groups, local organizations and just about anyone with a cause. The brothers are passionate about their community and believe that anyone has the ability to give back. They hope that by offering their services as an outlet for outreach, they can encourage others in their community to think of creative ways to help one another.

Peter’s Kettle Corn allows John and Peter to do what they love, what inspires them and what they’re passionate about. They hope that their business will continue to grow and that their story can help others chase after what they love, pursue what inspires them, and enhance their passion for life.
