Great Lakes Potato Chip Company Wins Awards
Traverse City – Great Lakes Potato Chip Company is thrilled to announce they are winners at the Chip Festival in Saratoga Springs, New York. The company took home two gold medals in the Best Kettle Chip and Best Tortilla Chip categories.
In its inaugural year, The Chip Festival welcomed chip lovers and vendors to sample snacks and talk to chip makers. Saratoga Springs is the unofficial birthplace of the potato chip.
“It was a really great festival,” said Ed Girrbach, co-owner of Great Lakes Potato Chips. “We did not know what to expect the first year, but there were so many people in attendance.”
Since Great Lakes Potato Chips are not currently sold in New York state, the company is looking forward to a boost in their on-line chip sales following the festival and plans on attending again in 2017.
A 2014 recipient of the “Michigan 50 Companies to Watch” by Michigan Celebrates Small Business, Great Lakes Potato Chips has also been awarded best kettle chip by the Chicago Tribune.
