KuKuRuZa 5 Year Anniversary!
When KuKuRuZa opened in 2008, our customers were worried that we would not last long. Yes, we had delicious popcorn, but the economic climate had just taken a turn for the worse, and the general feeling was that selling popcorn was not enough to pay the rent in a down economy.

The successful popcorn shops that have been around for longer than we have survive through tradition, proudly boasting that their flavors haven’t changed in decades. We opened in a time of economic difficulty with ideas that broke the mold of that tradition, with flavors like our Reserv line, including Truffle Fromage Porcini, Pecan Praline, and Bittersweet L’orange. Without a long standing tradition of our own, we had no such reservations about changing and constantly improving our popcorn recipes. The result, we think, is a robust menu of unique and delicious popcorn varieties that has been refined over the last 5 years. We have no intention of stopping the innovation and hopping on the tradition bandwagon. There are just too many culinary possibilities with popcorn that have been left unexplored, and we are very eager to continue exploring them!
