Picky People Pick Bickel's - Potato Chips, Pretzels, Popcorn, Corn Chips and More!


Established in 1954

Bickel's Potato Chip Company was started in 1954 by Mr. Luther Bickel in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. It was a regional family-run business offering a unique "seared" potato chip in a variety of flavors.

Our Roots

In 1998, Bickel's was purchased by Hanover Foods Corporation.

To further strengthen its position in the salted snack category, in 2000 Hanover Foods purchased York Snacks and the Bon Ton Potato Chip facility in York, Pennsylvania. The Companies were consolidated as "Bickel's Snack Foods, Inc.".

The consolidation brought together the production of corn snacks, potato chips, and the unique seared potato chip. All within one company, for branded labels and private labels.

In 2001, Bickel's acquired WEGE Pretzel Company of Hanover, Pennsylvania. To strengthen its position with the manufacturing of pretzels in a variety of shapes and sizes.

Bickel's is one of the few manufacturers that can offer a FULL LINE of salted snacks providing quality, consistency, and dedication to customer service.
