Great Lakes Potato Chip Company Receives Expansion Grant
The Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development is helping one Northern Michigan business get a little bigger. The Great Lakes Potato Chips Co. in Traverse City is getting USD80,000 to help the company expand their Northern Michigan operations.
A company statement says that over the last few years, they have outgrown their current facility. Representatives also say this money will go towards securing a new facility, and helping to get their chips into more stores.
President of Great Lakes Potato Chips Co., Chris Girrbach commented: “That’ll be a big challenge just in terms of logistical moves but then it’s just going to continue to expand the region and let people get some of the Great Lakes Chips and potatoes that the farmers grow and keep doing our thing.”
The Great Lakes Potato Chips Co. says they expect to move into their new home within the next 12 to 14 months.
