About Our Founder, Terri R. Waller  

Terri R. Waller, Terri Waller, Benson Mills Group, MUES

Terri got her first lessons in food service from being onsite with her grandmother and aunt while they worked in or managed food service establishments, to include Morrison's, Captain D's and KFC.  She admired watching them run a tight ship, effectively managing both operations and service.  When Terri grew up she followed in their food service footsteps.

In 2006,  Terri incorporated The Benson Mills Group, whose very first client was a popcorn company.  The name Benson Mills is a fusion of Terri's late mother's maiden name (Benson) and her father's last name (Mills).  Terri is proud to carry on a family legacy of excellence through The Benson Mills Group.
