Uncle Ray's chips made in Detroit

The potato chips made right here in Detroit are called Uncle Ray's. Having learned how to cook in the US Navy, Ray Jenkins applied this knowledge to start his own food business in 1965. These delicious chips come in at least a dozen flavors and each one has a different intriguing snippet on the back of the package about Ray's life story and words of encouragement. The factory on Birwood has 75,000 square feet and employs almost 200 people. Uncle Ray's chips are sold in 48 states and Canada. Three cheers for Detroit!
