Mikesell’s, a historic Dayton, Ohio maker of potato chips and snack foods that has been operating since 1910, is going out of business. As Thomas Gnau reports for Dayton Daily News, the company announced last week that it hopes to sell its brand and intellectual property rights to another snack food manufacturer to potentially continue the Mikesell’s brand.
But the company said it “is beginning to wind down its manufacturing, distribution, and administrative operations to proceed with an orderly liquidation of its assets.”
Mikesell’s describes itself as the oldest continuously run family-owned potato chip company in the nation, operating since 1910.
Like all businesses, the company has faced challenges linked to recent inflation. But this latest bout — fueled by pandemic-strained global supply chain problems, war in Europe and more — has been pronounced.
