Advancing The 

Family Business


It’s a Wisconsin business story that’s been repeated hundreds of times; a father starts a business and wants to retire, but who - if anyone - can take over the business? 


In 2016, Mark Knudsen took over the small family business, ‘Pop’s Kettle Corn’ from his father, Richard, upon retirement. Previously the business was simply a way for his father to keep busy and have fun. Mark wanted more and has been aggressively moving the business on an upward trajectory. 


Today, Pop’s Kettle Corn continues expansion opportunities with an aggressive marketing campaign opening two retails stores and advancing the business to include corporate and wholesale sales, expansion into the grocery and liquor store sector as well as new outside opportunities of sporting and charitable events and beyond. This is the entrepreneurial story of a family business rocketing toward success. But success doesn’t come without a few unpopped or burnt kernels and those challenges have to be overcome as well.


Get the story. Get inspired. And…get a few tasty samples to boot.
