Founder/Chief Visionary Officer

Kristy Lewis founded Quinn in 2010 with a mission to challenge the status quo and create massive change within our food system. She started Quinn in her attic just three days after her first son, Quinn, was born. Since then, Kristy and Quinn have been trailblazers in the snack space leading and growing a movement around ingredient transparency and climate-friendly agriculture practices. Kristy is committed to breaking down the barriers between organic and conventional agriculture and focusing on reducing and eliminating, over time, synthetics and chemical inputs from the food system.
Kristy was highlighted by Whole Foods Market Women Makers twice. For Raising the Bar and for Female Firsts, both recognizing leaders who inspire and motivate others to create new and better products. She was honored as one of the Most Promising Women Entrepreneurs by Fortune Magazine. Quinn Snacks was named Snack Producer of the Year by Snack Food and Wholesale Bakery and in 2022 Quinn won Best Pretzel of the Year in the Mindful Awards which recognizes conscious companies and products and Grocery Headquarters Trailblazer Award won in 2017. Found nationally in 22,000 stores, Quinn is one of the fastest growing Natural & Specialty Pretzel brands. Having successfully built Quinn into the #2 pretzel brand at Whole Foods, (behind only private label) and #3 pretzel brand in the Natural Channel, they are the Better for You brand leader in the overall $1.6B Pretzel category.
