West Virginia Potato Chip Co. has rebounded from a fire that damaged its Parkersburg plant in March.
West Virginia Potato Chip president Randall Holden tells the Parkersburg News and Sentinel that the company invested $1.5 million in upgrades. It also spent more than $1 million to buy a new fryer.
Holden says another potato chip maker produced the Mister Bee brand for his company while the Parkersburg facility was renovated.
He also says West Virginia Potato Chip recently signed a contract with Pennsylvania-based Snyder's of Hanover to distribute Mister Bee potato chips throughout West Virginia and new areas in Ohio and Kentucky.
