My name is Bric Simpson. My family and I come from a humble background. I have served in the military for 15 years; we absolutely love this country, and our ability to work hard and follow our dreams.
The Kernel King started with a passion for popcorn. Our family loves going to the movies; in particular, we’ve always loved movie theater popcorn! To us there is nothing better than escaping into an alternate universe, getting wrapped up in an amazing cinematic story, all while enjoying our favorite snack. My beautiful wife had a habit of cooking up ingenious ways to flavor her popcorn. One day, she turned to me and simply said, “You know, this popcorn would be so much better if it had a lid!”
I knew she was onto something. I immediately jumped into action; I sketched my ideas out and held brainstorming sessions with close friends. That’s where our friend and co-Owner John came in– a highly successful entrepreneur with years of experience, he and his family became the hinge pin that made our product development and company launch possible.
