Mister Bee potato chips plans veterans promotion

By  | 

PARKERSBURG, W.Va.-(WTAP) West Virginia's only snack manufacturer is doing its part to help veterans and their families.


Parkersburg-based Mister Bee is introducing a veterans-themed potato chip bag.

10% of the money generated from individual sales will benefit the United Services Organization (U.S.O.)

The specially designed packages should be in stores by the end of this year.

"They should start seeing it by the end of December, in the stores," says Sales Manager Rob Graham.

"We hope this will generate about $50,000 donation to the USO," adds CEO and Principal Owner Mary Anne Ketelsen.

Mr. Bee is introducing the special bags to launch its new five-ounce line of containers.

Known for its variety shows for soldiers serving overseas, the U.S.O. is also a support group for veterans and their families.
