Better Made competed in The Chip Festival in New York and came back with two gold medals.

The Chip Festival is a national snack competition that included more than two dozen companies. Better Made won best potato stick for its original flavor and best spice/salt chip for its salt and vinegar. 

"We think we make the best chips in the world," says Mark Costello, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Better Made.

"Kids, they watch us everyday go to work and when they get to see stuff like that on TV, that's pretty awesome," adds Tom Hurley, Better Made's general manager.

The family-owned business has been in Detroit since 1930 and employees take their job very seriously. 

"There's a lot that goes into it, slice thickness to the oil we use, the oil temperature. It gets really intricate," says Costello. "The end result is a perfect chip."
