Our son Quinn just had his 1st birthday, and Quinn Popcorn turned one a few days after that! This past year has FLOWN by, but It has been one of the most interesting years I have ever had. I was packaging in the warehouse today, still trying to get Kickstarter packages out of the door, when I realized that I was actually assembling Quinn Popcorn boxes!?!
I guess we have been running around non-stop and it’ss been hard for me to stop and look around! Sh*t, we are actually doing it! I am still holding my breath, because anything could happen… but right now, it feels good! The excitement just started to hit me. That, and I think I might be delirious from lack of sleep, quiting coffee, and a teething bambino.
Taking a concept to product in a year has not been easy. I would be 100% lying if I said it was, but nonetheless, jumping in and taking the risk has been pretty fun and extremely terrifying! I still don’st think we are crazy for doing this even though we have $0 in the bank, my babysitters check bounced today, and UPS called to say that we have a 26k invoice…(which is wrong by the way) It still feels good.
Thanks for the support with your Kickstarter pledges, your Daily Candy votes, your Facebook likes, your Tweets, your comments on our blog, your feedback, your help with our packaging and flavors, and your constant support and encouragement! Because of you guys we have survived the first year!
These unpopped kernels are popping!!! (We took the above photo a year ago.. when we first jumped in!)
