A Few Words About Our Store


Kernel Benny's is a small-batch premium popcorn shop. We are Frankenmuth's original kettle corn company and operate two fully-licensed concessions. Chances are you have experienced our popcorn during our many festivals! We host a small coffee shop, bourbon barrel coffee, locally crafted ice cream, old-fashioned milk shakes and floats along with other Michigan made products. Select your favorite items and we will place them in a gift basket or prepare them for shipping. We carry an ever-expanding profile of craft beer, cider, mead, and German imports. Enjoy a warm bag of kettle corn while visiting our store.. it's on the house! You will be glad you popped in!

Concessions & Kettle Corn

Frankenmuth's Original Kettle Corn Company

At Kernel Benny' we take our kettle corn seriously! Although it is created using only four simple ingredients, we pride ourselves in using the proper ones. We start with a premium seed, pure corn oil, cane sugar, and coarse salt. We then add high heat with our big fiery kettle, the old-fashioned way using a wooden paddle and some rigorous stirring.

Kernel Benny's is a fully-licensed and insured concession with NSF Certified Equipment. We are available to discuss coming to your special event or community activity. Please call 989-928-3950 and ask for Barb.

Our store front is located at 321 S. Main Street "TOP OF THE HILL" Frankenmuth. Typically you can find us an most Frankenmuth events and some other locations. Due to COVID-19, we are currently only popping off site at the Frankenmuth Farmers Market on Saturdays.
