Kristy Lewis, mom of 3 boys, founded Quinn in 2010 after years of obsessing over changing the food industry for the better. Just days after her first son Quinn was born, she set out on a mission to do just that. Quinn has been on the leading edge of challenging the status quo of our food system and has been committed to climate-friendly agriculture practices and ingredient transparency since day one. Quinn’s ridiculously delicious snacks are proof that when you care about where your ingredients come from and how they are grown, you make food differently, you make it better. Quinn is known for industry firsts - microwave popcorn in a Pure Pop Bag made of compostable paper and free of chemical or plastic coatings, the first whole grain and gluten-free pretzel, and the first gluten-free filled pretzel nuggets. Quinn snacks are one of the fastest growing natural and specialty pretzel brands in the US, available in nearly 20,000 stores across channels. Find out more at QuinnSnacks.com.
