A little over 70 years ago, Herbert and Dimira Marquart bought a farm in Gainesville.
In the early 70s, their sons Tom and Ed asked them if they could get in on the family business, and began growing potatoes.
Then, it was serial entrepreneurship. They started a lumber company, a trucking company, an equipment repair company, a real estate company, and.. New York Chips!
Their line of potato chips have taken New York State by storm, bursting on to scenes and showing up on nearly every grocery store shelf you see.
Tomorrow, Adam Marquart and his father will be in studio to tell us how one small family farm down near Letchworth State Park became an empire.
Also, we'll have someone from Savor! in studio to preview the upcoming premiere foodie event happening next Wednesday in downtown Rochester.
