Say it out loud. Say it with food in your mouth. Sing it out in public places. Even whisper it to your dog. Say it however you like! The only thing you can’t do is say “Funky Monkey Corn Company” with a frown on your face. According to a recent bogus study, even your grumpy great grandpa and your cranky cousin will smile the first time they say it.
It’s delicious. Anytime. Any day. Anywhere. Duh.
First and foremost, Funky Monkey is all about delightful yet funky flavors of gourmet popcorn! That’s why in every single batch we use locally farmed non-GMO corn, 100% real butter, 100% real cheese and pure cane sugar. And it’s also why we leave out the preservatives and high fructose corn syrup. If it isn’t the best stuff ever, then it doesn’t go into Funky Monkey Popcorn.
In our store, it’s all about rolling out the red carpet for our guests. Every member of our team acquires extensive knowledge of our flavors, ingredients and our hand-crafting process before they become certified popcorn specialist. Our specialists are here to help you find the perfect flavor for your taste buds, the right size bulk order for your event, or the best gift package for a celebration!
You are welcome to visit our store anytime and experience a one-of-a-kind tasting tour. We love taking you around our space so you can try each flavor. Be sure to have about 30 minutes and a healthy appetite, though. We also offer affordable bulk purchases for your special occasion. You can even custom color and flavor our popcorn for those extra-special occasions like weddings, baby showers, graduations, and much, much more. And, we love our community’s participation in our seasonal flavor voting. Every three months, you can choose our next three seasonal flavors by voting in our store or on any of our social media sites. The only thing better is tasting how your winning flavor turned out!
In our Pop Room, we’re all about reaching and maintaining zero-waste operations. We partner with local farmers to use any stale candy and cheese-coated popcorn to feed goats and pigs. We even use our stale naked corn to feed our urban bird buddies (and as light-weight shipping fill for your bird buddies, too.)
All paper, plastic, cans and glass from our building is recycled. And we’re always reducing our non-recyclable products every day! Zero-waste is more attainable than you think!
In Kansas City, we’re all about encouraging and improving our community. We’re so proud to partner with local schools and not-for-profit organizations to generate funds with our one-of-a-kind FUN-raisers. We’re also thrilled to feature local micro-businesses in our store and support the highly skilled artisans in our area.
Funky Monkey Corn Company was founded in 2014 by Funky Monkey Kim, a mom of two, an environmental scientist, and an active member in the local community. Feeling stifled by the confinements of a corporate career, she decided to make a leap. After dabbling in a few of her interests, she was encouraged by her husband to take her favorite snack to the next level. Over several dinners with her family, they scratched out a concept for a popcorn store that would be unlike any other. It would be a flavor experience. From designing and creating the interior by hand, to personally ensuring every batch meets our standards, to meeting and talking with guests, Kim brought the concept to life with her own hands. Thanks to the incredible support from the local community, Funky Monkey has come a long way from a concept tossed around at the dinner table to being a reality.
