Inspired by his late Father, a Venture Capitalist, Zac knew he always wanted to have his own business.
The Kettle Gourmet idea came to Zac when he smelt the delicious and overbearing aroma of Nasi Lemak that someone had smuggled into the theatre, whilst he was enjoying his popcorn in the cinema.
Today, the company has reached a daily sales volume of 1000 popcorn bags and accrued over 300 partners and clients.
