|Chicago Kernel Signs Show Up at Old Chutney Joe's Retail Space|
A reader sent us the picture above which would imply that Chicago Kernel is moving into the old Chutney Joe's space at 511 S. State. We don't know much about Chicago Kernel, but according to their website they have two stores and their story is:
Often called “The City’s Best Kept Secret” by our loyal customers, Chicago Kernel Gourmet Popcorn has raised the bar for gourmet popcorn made in Chicago - setting higher standards for taste, quality and customer service. We are known for our hometown pride in creating a product worthy to be named after the city where caramel corn was born. Chicago Kernel Gourmet Popcorn is made fresh in our stores every day and is quickly becoming a “must stop” destination for both Chicagoans and visitors to the Windy City!They have pretty good yelp reviews, but honestly the location seems a little strange to us. It's a mix of students and local Sloop residents - not tourists.
Anyway, it's always good to get new businesses in the area. Chutney Joe's closed about a year ago.
