Setup Requirements

We require drive-up access to our setup site. Our kettle uses propane and is setup outside of our trailer and under a 10’x10′ tent. In general, our complete setup requires a 30’x10′ area OR a 20’x20′ area depending on the placement of our tent. We request a single standard electric outlet within 50 feet of our trailer to power a work light and up to two small load machines in our trailer. Our generator is loud and we prefer not to use it whenever possible.

 

Service Time

Groups up to 100 people will be allotted one hour serving time. For every additional 50 paid guests we will include 1/2 hour more serving time at no additional cost.

 

Extended Event Service Charge

If you require us to serve for more time than what we include, this additional time will be billed at $30 per hour for the Kettle Corn Package and Korny Package and $45 per hour for the Carnival Package. For example, if your event is for 200 planned guests but you require us open and serving for three hours, then there will be a service charge for one additional hour.

 

Travel Time

Our normal operating area is within 25 miles of our Afton store location. This travel time is included in all party packages. We will gladly travel to your event anywhere in Virginia. Travel outside of our 25 mile radius is billed for both mileage and time. We currently use Google Maps to calculate both using the fastest toll-free route.

 

Mileage Service Charge

Travel outside of our normal operating area will be billed at $1.25 per mile. To calculate this service charge, take the total round trip mileage (as calculated above), subtract 50 (for the portion of travel within our operating area) and multiply by $1.25.

 

Time Service Charge

Travel outside of our normal operating area will be billed at $30 per hour for the Kettle Corn Package and Korny Package and $45 per hour for the Carnival Package. To calculate this service charge, take the total round trip time (as calculated above), subtract one hour (for the portion of travel within our operating area) and multiply by the hourly rate for your selected party package.

 

Deposit Requirement

A 50% deposit is required. This will reserve your selected day and time range. Please be certain of your event details as a portion of this deposit is nonrefundable.

 

Balance Due Requirement

Your full invoice balance is due when we arrive at and before we setup at your event.

 

Guest Overages

Some events are setup as “open bar” type events. While some items are prepared based on the invoiced guest count prior to the event, we are usually able to accommodate additional guests or return visitors with fresh popped kettle popcorn. With your prearranged approval, this will be charged to a credit card immediately upon the conclusion of your event at the cost of $3.00 per bag.

 

Cancellation

Half of the deposit is refundable if you cancel at least 72 hours prior to the start time of your event. If you cancel within 72 hours of your event start time, your entire deposit will be forfeited as many preparations will have already been made. We will prepare to serve your guests in any weather conditions on the day and time range requested. We cannot guarantee to be able to accommodate rescheduling requests but may do so at our own discretion.

 

Failure of Service

If unexpected circumstances cause us to not be able to provide the requested services, King’s Gourmet Popcorn will only be responsible for refunding the unused portion of any deposit or balance already paid. In no way will we be liable for any other perceived loss by you or your guests by our unplanned absence.

 

License, Insurance and Permitting

We are licensed to operate by the Virginia Department of Food Safety as a mobile concession stand. Our liability insurance covers our operations at these events. Any city/county permit required for our presence at your event are your responsibility and at your own expense. If your event is on private property, this is typically not required.

 

State Sales Tax

Our event packages are listed with tax included on our pricing list. On your invoice Virginia Sales Tax will be deducted from pricing based on your city/county tax rate. If it is determined that sales tax should not be collected for your event, the full price from the pricing list will be used for your package.
