The brainchild of Dann Villwock, owner or Kernel's Gourmet Popcorn & More (formally Kernel Fabyan's) in downtown Geneva, Illinois with a second location in Naperville, Illinois came about 10 years ago with the help of Dann's wife Cathy, their five sons, and family members. The family worked for months in their kitchens formulating just the right ingredients, paying close attention to every detail to make the perfect caramel corn that Kernel's customers have come to know and love, just like Grandma's so buttery and crisp!
In 2011, Kernel’s relocated from our 3rd street location to 316 W. State Street in Geneva. We have increased our product line to include high-quality candies, nuts, gift baskets, & more. Kernel’s received the 2012 & 2013 Reader’s Choice Award, Best of the Fox, for the Best Popcorn/Candy Store in Kane County.
At our locations in Geneva and Naperville, Illinois, Kernel’s customers will experience exceptional customer service, free samples, and the best gourmet popcorn around. Individual and customized orders, wedding and party favors, gift baskets, bulk, and corporate orders are Kernel’s specialties. No matter what occasion it may be, popcorn, candies & more are always a delicious and timeless treat.
The popcorn is always made fresh daily. Whether it’s the buttery caramel corn alone, or combined with the cheesiest of cheese our popcorn is "truly more like a religious experience,” customers tell the Villwock’s.
"One Kernel at a Time."
