Welcome to Powered Up Pop Ups

A community for entrepreneurs in the pop up industry.

About Me

Hi! I’m Kissa, a serial entrepreneur based in the suburbs of Los Angeles. I’ve owned various businesses over my 17 year career, the highlight being Ninong’s Dessert Lab (formerly known as Ninong's Cafe) - my family’s Filipino-American food business that created industry-changing products like Ube Pancakes and Ube Cookie Butter..

I’ve been featured in various media outlets and companies including ABC, KTLA-CW, Thrillest, Yelp LA, Intuit, and more.

I’m incredibly passionate about helping people, creating communities, and entrepreneurship. In my spare time you can find me having lunch dates with loved ones, coaching an entrepreneur, or spending time with my husband Charlie, my son Micah, and my pup Eevee.

Why You Should Join Me

This community is a 15 year journey! Community has always been part of my vocabulary and something I constantly need in my life. It has a way of helping us to grow, give back to others, and learn all at the same time. There's so much to learn from our peers. I’m just SO passionate about this, I can’t hide my excitement!

I’ve always wanted to coach and mentor and I finally feel that it’s the right time for me to give back and share what I’ve learned along the career. My goal is to help you take your business to the next level through this community, coaching, and providing you with tools to help you take your business to the next level and give you a support system that is cheering you on! 

I have some big plans for this space! I’ll be sharing resources and content on specific topics about entrepreneurship and the food and product industry while building a group of like-minded individuals that are open, honest, and looking for community. On top of that, I’ll be hosting coaching sessions to help answer your specific questions and needs!

Really guys - I’m pouring my heart and soul into this puppy. And I would love for you to be part of it!
