I started making popcorn for fun in 2016. Then, I realized my grandmother used to eat it all the time before she passed away in 2014. After that memory, I really got interested in developing different flavors. I think subconsciously, she was passing the idea down to me. Also, in 2016, I was blessed with my first grandchild, Kennedy. Her presence made me want to leave something behind for her like my grandmother left for her family. I decided that I wanted to leave her with a legacy she too could pass down. I decided to expand on my popcorn hobby and possibly turn it into a business named Kennedy Gourmet Popcorn by Granmere (Me, her grandmother). I started developing more flavors and narrowed down a label design that had to be changed in 2018 when my grandson, Kumir was born. I then decided to call the business Kennedy & Kumir Gourmet Popcorn by Granmere. As more and more people tried and loved the popcorn, I realized that this is truly a legacy to be left for my grand-kids and future generations in our family.
