Keynote Speaker Angie Bastian
Tuesday, May 5, 12:45 p.m. - 1:45 p.m.
Angie Bastian, entrepreneur, co-founder, and namesake of Angie’s BOOMCHICKAPOP, took a kernel of an idea and popped it into one of the fastest growing brands of natural popcorn. As a means for creating a college fund for their children, she and husband Dan founded their snack company in their Mankato, MN, garage in 2001. On her entrepreneurial journey from Main Street to main stage, Angie grew a garage popcorn business into a global snack food leader – from being the official kettle corn of the NFL’s Minnesota Vikings to becoming an attractive private equity investment and eventually acquired by Conagra Brands.
Loved by fans as an empowered, spirited brand that represents authentic, real food, Angie’s BOOMCHICKAPOP delivers on the attributes of clean, transparent labeling and great taste experience. It is one of the fastest growing and most successful popcorn brands in the market today. Their gluten free, non-GMO, whole grain popcorn is now proudly sold in natural food, grocery, club, and mass retail outlets nationwide with a product presence in Canada, South Korea, Japan, Singapore, the Caribbean, Central America, Mexico, and Peru.
