All successful companies state that Quality and Service are cornerstones of their business. The Jones Potato Chip Company is no exception. We go the extra mile to please customers and to build strong trusting relationships with them.
The most significant accomplishments in Bob’s career have been increasing business by 125% since 2007 and moving the factory and business in an expansion in 2010. During this time the company has transitioned from a local potato chip manufacturer selling the Jones brand in a sixty-mile radius of Mansfield Ohio to predominantly a producer of private label potato chips and potato sticks. In addition to the Jones brand, we package in brands such as Kroger, Nick’s Potato Chips, Walnut Creek, Real, Earl’s Potato Chips, New York Chips, Stew Leonard’s, Mister Bee, and we manufacture for Tyson Foods. We ship products to New York, Pennsylvania, Florida, Michigan, Illinois, Minnesota, Kansas, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Puerto Rico.

Bob served as a church leader, teacher, as a musician, a mentor to young men, and as an Elder in his congregation for over twenty years. He helped start the Clear Fork Youth Soccer league in the mid 1980’s serving as the Vice President and then President of the league. Bob enjoys living quietly in the country on his five-acre wooded property that over looks the Clear Fork River outside of Bellville Ohio.
