The Northern Neck Popcorn Bag Story
Kevin and Terri Crowder are the proud owners of the Northern Neck Popcorn Bag, the Northern Neck region's source for premium, handcrafted, gourmet popcorn. Kevin and Terri, maintain residences in Fredericksburg and Heathsville. They have three children: a daughter who is currently working towards her Doctorate in Psychology, a son who is a student at Lynchburg College, and a daughter in high school in Fredericksburg. The Crowders are active members of Fredericksburg Baptist Church.
Kevin has served as a chaplain (Board Certified Chaplain and Association for Clinical Pastoral Education Supervisor) at Mary Washington Hospital for over 24 years, specializing for many of those years in ministerial and chaplaincy education. When he is not at the hospital, look for him in a variety of performance ensembles (he plays violin in the Rappahannock Pops Orchestra, the Fredericksburg String Quartet, the St. George's Chamber Orchestra, and from time to time even the Lynchburg Symphony).
Terri is a 4th generation entrepreneur. She has developed her entrepreneurial, sales and marketing skills in a variety of endeavors from owning a Money Mailer direct mail franchise, to owning a multi-location automotive repair business, and as an Automotive Management Software Consultant.
Terri's great-grandmother, grandmother and aunt were all entrepreneurial women. She developed her entrepreneurial interests working in her grandmother's snowball stand, Millie's Snow Balls, on the Colonial Beach Boardwalk, in the 70's.
When Kevin and Terri began planning to open a premium, handcrafted, gourmet popcorn store, it wasn't long before their search brought them to Kilmarnock. After spending the afternoon in town and while having lunch at NN Burger, they crystallized the idea that this is where it needs to be. They love the Northern Neck region, its welcoming people and all that the region has to offer. They love being on the water. They love the small town atmosphere. They knew that this was the right place to open the shop.
They can't wait to see you "POP" by the store!
