About Us


Gina and Tim (Founders/Big Cheeses)

Gina (aka “The Old Maid”) has been in the food and beverage industry for more than 38 years and has always had a love for people and food! As Thee Big Cheese & Head Nut it is Gina’s energy and spirit that continually keeps us all driving forward and dreaming big!

Tim (aka “The Kernel”) spent more than 25 years running his own contracting business, but has always preferred to be in the kitchen swinging the whisk rather than the hammer. He is the brains of the operation (the only fully sane one) and heads our production efforts – creating that homemade deliciousness!

Together they simply want to add some fun to people’s lives by combining their passions for food and cooking and making the best popcorn on the planet! They’ve worked diligently for years to create the perfect recipes, and plan to continue creating new flavors and maintaining the highest possible quality standards to ensure every person who puts our popcorn in their mouths can taste the Half Nuts Difference. In their free time Gina and Tim enjoy…well…making popcorn! OK, maybe they enjoy an occasional round of golf, too.

It all started with a passion, a passion to bring happiness to others. Our popcorn business came to be almost six years ago when a customer offered us a popcorn kettle machine. It started as a hobby for family and friends. They absolutely loved our caramel popcorn and wanted more! From there we grew into Half Nuts Popcorn Company. The company started with a very simple menu and has grown into a very extensive variety of popcorn flavors. We are honored to have been a part of many different events, such as weddings, birthdays, bridal showers, engagement parties and fundraisers, we have been blessed beyond belief and we are excited to continue with our passion bringing happiness to all. Thanks for being a part of our journey.
