K-POP Foods Inspiration
The company's mission is to bring people together and uplift spirits by sharing Korean food and flavors with America. Our beachhead product is KPOP Sauce, a Korean chili sauce based on a family recipe.
In response to the growing demand of Korean and ethnic flavors nationwide, KPOP Foods aims to be the premier Korean food brand for America. Differentiating itself through its brand and distribution model, KPOP Foods not only educates consumers through fun and engaging content across social media platforms, but also creates quality products that are authentic and easily accessible.
KPOP Sauce launched on Kickstarter and is now the #1 new release and most wished for products in chili sauces on Amazon; it has also earned the honorary badge of “Amazon’s Choice”.
Growing up as Korean Americans, founders, Theo and Mike, were each fortunate to have families that loved and celebrated Korean food. Their family members would spend endless amounts of time preparing every meal, whether it was for two, or twenty people. Every meal was special. Every meal was a celebration. At UCLA, Theo and Mike became good friends through a mutual love for Korean food (and soju, of course). They shared their passion with new friends, who soon became obsessed with the flavors and experience of eating Korean food. Understanding that their friends loved Korean food as much as both of them, they created KPOP Foods to spread Korean food and flavors to America, and promote the experience of bringing people together and having fun.
