Will is married to the former Tiffany Templeton and they have three children. Their oldest son Tye has several food allergies and they struggled to find foods for him to eat. However, one of the foods Tye can eat is popcorn. Will and Tiffany popped popcorn for Tye as a snack for his lunch daily and soon began to experiment. Together they developed a recipe for kettle corn, and began sharing it with their friends, family and coworkers. In 2016, Will and Tiffany brought their snack to Fayetteville and in 2018 launched HotSugarPop.
