Artisan Feature | Quinn Popcorn

7543418982_203eaa4094_k Microwave Popcorn - Reinvented. That is the mantra over at Quinn Popcorn, where husband + wife owners Kristy + Coulter Lewis set out on a mission to "clean-up" microwave popcorn after the birth of their first son (and company namesake), Quinn.  We were extremely excited to feature Quinn Popcorn in our August basket and honored to spend a little bit of time with Kristy to get to know her better on a personal level.  Based out of Boulder, Colorado, Quinn Popcorn was founded in 2012.
