I know, I thought this was all about hot dog vending too. But as time rolls on, I've met amazing vendors who do many things – other than hot dogs. I've done donuts now, mobile hog roasting, seafood, funnel cakes, street corn and much more. And now – kettle corn vending. Here you'll find my first purchase of kettle corn business supplies.
I guess – my end game is – to learn as much as I can about all the different types of street food vending and then carefully critique each one, test and gather the best tips and advice that I can – then share with you.
An Exclusive Group For Vendors
From kettle corn to tacos, 100's of vendors all helping one another in an exclusive private group. You can watch this video to see what it's all about.
[warning: it will inspire, encourage and excite you – and is exactly why I'm trying and succeeding at so many different vending opportunities]

KETTLE CORN BAGS
I got the medium and large bags. Decided not to do the small bags – but after working the first event – I think having small bags for samples would be nice. Maybe $3 sample bags and the occasional giveaway.
KETTLE CORN BAG SIZES
Small 8.5 x 12 (10-12 cups)
Medium 8.5 x 18 (16-18 cups)
Large 8.5 x 24 (22-24 cups)
How much does each bag hold? It's a moving target. Depending on the popped kernel brand, a large bag (8.5 x 24) will hold approximately 22 to 24 cups of popped kettle corn.
How To Seal A Kettle Corn Bag
Of course you could use a wire tie – just like your bread comes – but this would be very time consuming and although not a pro at this by any stretch of the imagination… the sealer I use is much faster and has the added benefit of being Tamper Proof.
