One of the most delicious popcorn I’ve tasted is the popcorn made by Holy Kettle Corn. Not too sweet, not too salty, everything tasted just right. I bought one in Glorietta last night and I can’t stop eating when I started.
I checked the latest issue of the Entrepreneur magazine and found out that cash investment for franchising Holy Kettle Corn is not that much. I think, an OFW looking for a business when he got home can franchise this one.
Here are the details as listed on page 78, column 3, of Entrepreneur magazine, July 2007 issue:

This business is new, started only last 2004. I think, it’s better to franchise as early as now. With that great product, that franchise fee is a bargain. It might go up in the coming years, so better franchise now. I only wish I have that much money now.
Regarding their official website, I think, it’s not yet up and running. What I see is a generic site advertisement eh. Just contact them on the landline or send them an e-mail if you are interested. Tell them you read about them here, they might give me some commissions. Hahaha!
