Meet the Owners
Lou Ann has been self employed her entire life. At 21 she purchased a local phenom in Decatur, Illinois called Del’s Popcorn Shop. www.delspopcornshop.com – www.delspopcorn.com. That blomed into 4 stores all owned by family members to this day. You may have seen the 1929 Model A green popcorn vending truck at local events in the area. No matter how hard she tries, she just can’t get out of the popcorn business. If you are lucky you will be able to pop in to Pine Street Pub and purchase some famous caramel corn! Lou Ann has also worked in store management for an up-scale boutique grocery here in Florida and Louisiana before devoting herself full time to Pine Street Pub and The Green Truck.
Kemper has been in the restaurant and bar business his entire career. Proving conclusively that “some people never, EVER learn.” From an early age he worked as a director of operation for several pizza chains before becoming a Pizza Hut Franchisee. Most recently Kemp owned and operated four pizza and Grinder shops in Springfield and Peoria Illinois as well as A Mexican restaurant and a Family restaurant in Decatur. A self confessed neat freak with strong tendency toward O.C.D. Kemper regularly drives his co workers “and Lou Ann” nuts with his continuous straightening of shelves and reorganizing stuff that doesn’t need to be organized in the first place.
