History

Cape Cod Potato Chips began as the dream of two small business owners. They imagined a small operation where they could produce and sell the potato chips they had cooked in their kitchen for years. On July 4, 1980 that dream became a reality when they set up shop in a small store front in Hyannis. The big crunch of the kettle cooked chips soon became a local favorite. News of the chips quickly spread as tourist sampled the chips and took bags home to share. The business soon grew out of the store-front and a worldwide love affair with our natural snacks began.

We have expanded our snack offerings to include varieties of our popular Reduced Fat item as well as over a half dozen potato chip flavors, and kettle style whole grain chips. No matter what the variety, we maintain the tradition of using only the highest quality, all-natural ingredients in all of our snacks.

The public’s love of our snacks inspired us to open our factory doors for tours in 1985. Since then the Cape Cod Potato Chip Factory Tour has become the area's largest tourist attraction, hosting over 250,000 visitors annually! The next time you visit the Cape, we invite you to stop in, take the tour and say hello.
