EPISODE DESCRIPTION

A Conversation with Jon Fieldman, Senior VP of Operations at Angie’s Boomchickapop, headquartered in North Mankato, Minnesota

(Interviewed by David Drickhamer)

In 2001 husband and wife entrepreneurs Dan and Angie Bastian started making kettle corn in their garage in North Mankato, Minn. Their snacks caught the attention of some people at the nearby training facility of the Minnesota Vikings. They eventually started selling their kettle corn at the Metrodome in Minneapolis, and the rest, as they say, is history. Today, Angie’s Boomchickapop is a national brand offering maple sea salt, salted carmel and sweet & spicy flavored snacks that feature whole grain, gluten-free, and non-GMO ingredients. TPG Growth, a unit of private equity firm TPG Capital, acquired a significant stake in the company in October 2014.

Jon Fieldman, Senior VP of Operations, started working for the company this previous January. He previously worked in manufacturing leadership and supply chain management roles for Shaklee, Schiff Nutrition, Clorox and General Mills.
