I love these little stories of entrepreneurial success.
Hartland-based Covered Bridge Potato Chips ready to expand after only a month in operation. Covered Bridge Potato Chip Company — based in Hartland, home of the world’s longest covered bridge — is setting its sights on New Brunswick snack food lovers with its spin on old-fashioned, kettle-cooked chips.
I hope they are able to become an exporting company at some point particularly with almost $600,000 in government investment in the firm. But, recall my position on this, import substitition is also economic development. If this company carves off 5% of the chip market in New Brunwick and that 5% comes from a chip manufacturer in Ontario – that means incremental economic activity for New Brunswick.
