Zappe Endeavors LLC, the Gramercy, La.-based chip maker of Zapp’s and Dirty potato chips, is moving into a former Kraft Foods building in Hanover Township, Pa.

“Pennsylvania is the snack food capital of the world,” says Rod Olson, president of Zappe Endeavors LLC.

The 40,000-sq.-ft. building along Stewart Road in the Hanover Industrial Estates began production in November. With 15 employees, the plant churns out 11 varieties of Zapp’s chips and 12 of the Dirty brand.

In May, Utz, Hanover, Pa., purchased Zappe Endeavors LLC, and will continue to operate the plants as a division of Utz, according to the company.
