A Few Words About Our Store

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.
