Meet Kakes The Great!

"One trip to the orthodontist changed the course of my life..." ~ Kaylynn Kakes the Great


Hello, my name is Kaylynn but you can call me Kakes. I would say I am your typical girly girl, but I don’t think there is anything typical about being a girl and equally, nothing typical about who I am. I love to have fun, meet new people and help in any way I can. 

On a visit to the orthodontist, my mom and I found out I needed braces. My mom works really hard and I wanted to help her with some of the cost. I thought long and hard about how I could do that and ultimately, I came up with the idea of creating my delicious kettle corn treats! I tested all my flavors with my mom, family and friends; and guess what, everyone loved it! I definitely knew this would be a lot of work, but was up for the challenge. From there Kakes the Great Popcorn Co. was born. Each flavor has been created and crafted in the Kakes Kitchen, using premium ingredients, locally sourced vendors, and guaranteeing freshness with every bag. 

Being a young entrepreneur comes with its fair share of challenges and each day I am determined to be the very best at what I do. My favorite part of this journey is knowing there is more to come. Thank you all for shopping with Kakes the Great. Please come back and see us soon!
