About

Launched in 2010, Quinn is known for making delicious gluten-free pretzels and microwave popcorn using only 100% REAL, simple ingredients and kicking artificial ingredients and unpronounceables to the curb.

Quinn delivered the 1st microwave popcorn in a patented PURE POP bag® made of compostable paper free of chemicals, plastic and heat conducting susceptors and made with only REAL ingredients and organic kernels; the 1st pretzels on the market made with whole grain, naturally gluten-free sorghum; the 1st gluten-free peanut butter filled pretzel nuggets, and the 1st and only grain-free, paleo pretzel chips.

Quinn is dedicated to sustainability. Quinn’s ‘Be Better. Do Better. ™’ initiative is a commitment to support and seek out agricultural partners who would like to take steps to improve their practices, thereby improving our food supply and environment. Quinn is also committed to transparency and backs it up with their Farm to Bag™ initiative which gives details about their ingredients, growers and suppliers right on their website. Quinn is available nationwide in over 6,500 retail locations including Whole Foods, Walmart, Kroger and online through Amazon and Thrive Market.

Founding Story

Kristy, mom of three little boys, launched Quinn with no prior food industry experience just three days after her first son, Quinn, was born. Since founding Quinn ten years ago, Kristy has been on a mission to transform our food system for the better, through ingredient transparency and working to advance agriculture towards a more regenerative approach. She hosts the “Be Better. Do Better.™” Podcast which features guests fighting for change and doing good in their industries.

Kristy was highlighted by Whole Foods two years in a row, last year first for Women leaders ‘Raising the Bar’ and this year for ‘Female Firsts’, recognizing women entrepreneurs who inspire and motivate others to create new and better products. Not only this, but she was also honored as one of the Most Promising Women Entrepreneurs by Fortune Magazine.
