The Utz story began in 1921 in Hanover, Pennsylvania, in the small-town kitchen of Bill and Salie Utz. They believed potato chips could be better and should be made from clean and simple ingredients to bring out the natural flavor of farm-fresh potatoes. Today, Utz remains focused on Family Crafted Flavor, reflecting the brand's pride in its family legacy, the love baked into every Utz snack, and the carefully crafted flavors families love.
