Celebrating snacking since 1910.
The story of Mikesell's Snack Food Company begins over 100 years ago, when our founder Daniel W. Mikesell went into business selling dried beef and sausage throughout Dayton, Ohio.
Shortly thereafter, he began producing "Saratoga Chips," named for the place they were discovered. Instead of standard inexpensive vegetable oil, Daniel was committed to preparing his potato chips in premium oil — giving them a unique taste and texture.
Today, Mikesell's is still a privately held manufacturer and distributor of snack foods ranging from potato chips and pretzels, to corn products, pork rinds and dips. And we're still headquartered in Dayton, Ohio — distributing our flavorful snacks to Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky and Illinois. Thanks to the convenience of online ordering, our customers span the country. With the click of the mouse they can have our products shipped straight to their doors no matter where they live.
Sure, we've been around longer than almost every other potato chip company in the United States... a milestone we wouldn't have reached without
all our loyal, passionate fans. But no matter how many years we've been in business, we always keep innovation at the forefront. In fact, our production facilities in Dayton and Indianapolis are some of the most state-of-the-art food processing facilities you'll find anywhere.
Most importantly, we also stay modern and fresh by constantly inventing new snack flavors and textures. We love satisfying the thrill-seeker in all of us with exciting chip varieties like Sweet Chili and Sour Cream and Good 'N Hot — as well as our ever-popular, one-of-a-kind Puffcorn Delites.
