Frank and Carolyn Kopel
Frank and Carolyn both work for the government and live in Springfield, Illinois. They have a garden, the size of which could feed a small nation. They grow many vegetables; the most notable of which is habanero peppers—from which they produce the infamous Kopel Anvil and Salsa Company® Salsa Starter®.

They reside in their house at the tolerance of Kelly’s cat—Squeak.

They have three children, Kendra, Kelly and Jason, along with three wonderful grandchildren, Charlie, Ruthie and Matthew.
