About My Popcorn Kitchen: If you’ve landed on this page, you must be a bit curious about My Popcorn Kitchen – who we are and what sets us apart. Well, those are great questions! Read on!
WHAT IS MY POPCORN KITCHEN ALL ABOUT?
Where is the best popcorn store? Founded in 2012, My Popcorn Kitchen was born out of a love for cooking (and eating!). We hand-craft our fresh, made-from-scratch gourmet popcorn in over sixty flavors, using the highest quality ingredients such as french chocolates, real cheddar cheese, rich brown sugar, and seasonings and spices we use in our own home. Made in small batches the old-fashioned way. We also like to get creative and whip up specialty flavors featured every month of the year!
Quite frankly we serve up the best popcorn that keeps our customers coming back again and again.
WHAT IS YOUR STORY?
But who are we exactly? We’re a husband and wife team that came up with an idea to start a business to call our own when the financial crisis hit in 2008. The next and most important decision was “what kind of business?” We looked at the Phoenix metro area and saw that there weren’t many popcorn stores. We have always loved popcorn so we set out to establish a unique niche offering fresh, delicious gourmet popcorn. It took us almost three years to do the research, develop our brand, find a location for our store, and open our doors. In 2012, our vision was realized and My Popcorn Kitchen has been popping up fresh, gourmet popcorn ever since.
But wait a second, the “who we are” story wouldn’t even be close to amazing without our stellar staff. A group of friendly, knowledgeable people dedicated to treating our customers to a premier popcorn experience.
WHAT IS YOUR MISSION?
Our slogan is Flavors Popped Fresh! Our mission is to deliver a popcorn experience that keeps our customers coming back for more. We’re chef-driven foodies with a passion for creating amazing flavors of popcorn. We won’t skimp on ingredients, quality or freshness.
We only use natural ingredients such as fresh herbs and spices, real cheese, healthy popcorn seed full of good for you fiber and antioxidants, rich chocolates, USA made sugar, healthy coconut oil, and much more. You can feel good about serving our popcorn to your family or giving it as a gift because we make our popcorn with our own family and friends in mind.
We don’t want to be the biggest popcorn store, just the best. The best in quality ingredients, the best in making delicious, gourmet popcorn, the best in customer service. Our motto is popcorn flavors popped fresh, made in small batches using our family recipes. You’ll be able to taste the difference from popcorn made fresh in our kitchen, not in a factory. We want to bring the old fashioned experience of the mom and pop shops of yesteryear to a twenty-first century world. Our mission was to create our company to counteract the commercialism and mass production of the popcorn conglomerates. No board of directors. No stockholders. Just a mom, pop and our amazing staff using only the highest quality ingredients to create our amazing popcorn flavors.

How Do You Make Your Gourmet Popcorn Flavors?
Every flavor we make is prepared from start-to-finish in our kitchen. We begin with the popping. Extra large, crisp kernels with a full-bodied flavor grown in the U.S.A. which are full of good-for-you fiber and antioxidants. From there, the popped corn goes into one of our specialized pieces of equipment, depending on the flavor we want to create:
The Caramelizer is used to make our delicious caramel popcorn flavors, caramels with nuts flavors and fruit popcorn flavors. We also use these flavors as the base for our chocolate flavors.
The Cheese Maker
The Cheese Maker is used to make our savory cheese popcorn flavors.

Here’s What Our Customers Are Saying
Great variety, friendly staff and fresh popcorn for virtually any occasion.
Thank you so much for coming to Scottsdale, AZ! I love your popcorn creations and flavor of the week specials! I have to say my favorite is the Extra Buttery! Chipotle is delicious, salt and vinegar yum! You deserve Popcorn of the Year award, seriously it’s that delicious! More people should rate your popcorn flavors online. My girlfriend and I have placed most of them. We refer you guys to all my friends. I’ll keep at em for you! Love you guys, keep it poppin’!
This place is wonderful. I’ve lived in the area for a while and finally stopped in yesterday to pick up some bags as a gift. Although there were a few customers ahead of me when I walked in, I was acknowledged and welcomed by Ashley and she gave me a menu to peruse. I sampled the Southwest Jalapeño and Puppy Chow, the latter of which I didn’t care for. I ordered junior sizes of Buttery, Kettle, and the Sonoran blend (White Cheddar, Kettle, and Southwest Jalapeño). I gave the first two bags to my friend and brought the Sonoran blend home to enjoy.
I like that they have 60 regular flavors and with seasonal flavors, up to 120! All of them can be found on their print menu and on their website. I only wish I had more time because I would’ve sampled other flavors and bought more. I will have to stop by again and try more of their cheese and chocolate flavors (which are at a premium price). Prices were as expected for gourmet popcorn and they make for unique gifts.
Try it you’ll like it! I love popcorn. They’ll let you try any flavor. I think they have like 80 kinds…it’s crazy. I’m not a huge sweet popcorn fan but I did like the Butterfinger popcorn. My favorites are the Salt and Vinegar, Ranch and the Sour Cream/Chive. The Beer Cheddar is pretty good but personally, I like the other flavors better. It makes a nice gift you can go all out with a tin or even just a single bag.
I finally stopped in! It was a long time coming, being that I had heard so much about this place that had about every flavor of popcorn one could imagine.
Yep, they do. I got 3 mini bags to try: Cornfetti, Scottsdale blend & Sonoran blend.Tasty, accurate flavors and big puffy kernels. All consumed by the end of the day.
They have seasonal flavors and sell an array of popcorn acutrimon as well.
I’m planning on being a regular.
What a fun experience taste testing before you buy. The popcorn is delicious!!! Especially the Dill Pickle! We will definitely be coming back and maybe even make it a tradition for family movie night.
The flavors brought back some of my childhood popcorn happiness. There were so many flavors and so many size choices that you will never walk out without purchasing something. Oh, and the customer service was genuine. The manager went above and beyond. I loved the people behind the chef window who seemed to care if I enjoyed the flavors they were providing me. Stellar place. I’ll be back.
Oh my!!!! They have so many yummy flavors it is tough to pick what to buy. Service is the best! Can’t wait to go again.
If you are a Popcorn lover, you MUST visit “My Popcorn Kitchen”. You’ll love the friendly and professional service provided by Ashley and Zac. (All the other employees there are excellent as well ~ I just don’t know all their names….)
LOTS of flavors to choose from, absolute best quality of Popcorn, and frequent “special” types throughout each month. (For July 4th, they have a “red, white and blue” mix). You can sample any of their flavors. They also have decorative tins of different sizes, as well as specialized popcorn gift containers in different themes. Pay them a visit and enjoy!
Wow!!! What a surprise. I thought this was gonna be a one-time thing. NOW I keep a stock of this popcorn at home. It’s the best I’ve had! I think they have over 60 flavors and I still can’t get over how amazing the Garlic Parmesan popcorn tastes! Definitely my favorite. I’ve started buying for clients and it’s been rewarding to get the phone calls or see their faces when they try it. A top pick for all occasions! I’ll be sending this to all my local and international clients for the holidays this year.
Great find!! We stumbled across this little gem, as I love popcorn and noticed the sign driving down Scottsdale Road. So glad I did!
You enter this cute store and they hand you a menu of the different types of popcorn they have. They use different corn for different flavors and you can taste the love (as you sample the different flavors).
The prices are reasonable, and I have even started bringing our out of town guests there as part of their orientation to the area.
Delicious fresh popcorn!! I love this place!
The girls were so helpful and the popcorn was HEAVEN!!!! I was just going in to do a couple of samples and I wound up buying myself a bag and sending a bunch of different types of popcorn to my grandsons in New Mexico. I’m hooked!!
Best popcorn ever!! The kettle corn and beer cheddar are my favorite flavors but I honestly like ALL of them. The store is always clean and organized. The staff and owners are always very attentive and helpful. Makes for great gifts that friends, family, clients or coworkers will keep talking about. A must try place in Scottsdale, for all ages. I LOVE MKP!!
