Founder Feature: Kristy Lewis

Every office worker knows that terrible, lingering smell… burned popcorn in the microwave. You almost wonder if you should be wearing a respirator to get through the rest of the day. It’s that nasty.

Wondering what was behind that stench made Kristy Lewis, founder of Quinn Snacks, do some investigation. What she discovered is that traditional microwave popcorn bags have chemicals and plastics in them. When her son Quinn was born, the idea of making a healthier bag for microwave popcorn took on more urgency.

Today Quinn Foods offers a unique Farm-to-Bag view of the ingredients in its expanded line of snacks. Available on its website, the Farm-to-Bag tool enables consumers to learn the origins of every ingredient used in Quinn Foods’ offerings.

Kristy’s company was named “Snack Producer of the Year” in 2017 by Snack Food & Wholesale Bakery. Kristy herself was named on Fortune’s 2015 Most Promising Women Entrepreneurs list. Quinn Snacks are sold in retail stores including Target, Publix, Kroger, and Earth Fare.
