Major Project Pop
posted by Lauren Randolph
You could say that Chauniqua Major – Louis (or “Major”) fell into Project Pop. Major was a heavy hitter for years in the Florida PR scene overseeing teams at several different firms. It was at one of her PR firms that her boss gifted her a cute air popper. So rather than letting it sit on a shelf, Major started playing around creating new kinds of popcorn flavors for her team. It was during this time that she really developed a love for popcorn. After years in PR, Major thought it was time for a change of career and direction. She initially considered the military (coming from a military family), and starting a juice company with a friend/business partner. It was when her new partner left her mid accelerator that she decided to fall back on what she knew, how to make delicious popcorn.
Her first and most popular flavor still to this day is her OG kettle korn (amazing, we must say!). Major only uses organic ingredients in her popcorn as she wants her nieces to be able to enjoy healthy snacks, but with some fun to them. All her popcorn is made with unrefined coconut oil (which shines through in each bite), non GMO organic kernels, vegan cane sugar and Himalayan pink salt. It’s quite the addictive treat! Not only does Major make snackable popcorn, she also works to give back. One of her leading mottos is “people over profits.” She proudly supports causes like the U.S. Hunger and the National Black Food & Justice Alliance with profits from her business.
