An Atlanta man and his two daughters are cooking up something good in the kitchen, and it comes in the form of crispity-crunchity homemade potato chips.
Dondre Anderson and his daughters Amina and Amari are the creators behind the all-natural, gluten- and MSG-free Symphony Chips, making them one of the few Black-owned potato chip producers in the world.
After launching All A’s Spice Seasonings in 2010, Anderson promoted his product by sprinkling the savory seasoning on his homemade chips so potential patrons could taste it, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. The local entrepreneur soon sold out of all his product, thanks to the chips, and decided to launch his own line with the help of his daughters.
“We began featuring our chips at the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra in 2016, and patrons showed tremendous appreciation for the vibrant addition to the concession stands,” the company website states. “Soon after, we started expanding to other symphonies across the state of Georgia and are now available online as well. Customers no longer have to leave the house to get the symphony of melodic flavors to snack on.”
Symphony Chips are currently available for wholesale and retail orders online. The AJC reported that the family plans to take their snack creation on the road, first stopping at the House in the Park music festival in Atlanta, and then other events across the country.
“After looking at our orders, it occurred to me that we have orders that go from as far south as Florida and as far north as New York,” Anderson wrote in a Sept. 1 blog post. “Then, we looked again and saw that we have orders that go as far west as California and Washington state!
“We are in total amazement and are so grateful for every order!”
