What is Uncle Ray’s …
Uncle Ray’s is a Potato Chip and Snack Manufacturing company that has been in business since 1965. Uncle Ray’s was founded under the principle of manufacturing good potato chips made by ordinary folks for the common people.
Uncle Ray’s currently has two manufacturing facilities, the flagship manufacturing facility remains in operation in Detroit MI and our newest state of the art facility is in Montgomery City MO.
We build and value relationships and take that to heart. We care for the people we work with and care for the people that work for us. Our company is dedicated and honored to continue a family dynamic as we have team members who have worked with us 20+ years dedicated and passionate to making great chips.
We continue to pass on the values of Ray Jenkins, one of the founders of Uncle Ray’s. He believed in giving back, making sure everyone has an opportunity to learn, and changing the world one chip at a time.
