The Husman's Potato Products Company was founded in 1919 by Harry Husman. Harry started the company after hearing that grocers in the Cincinnati area had to get their potato chips from out of town and were frequently out of stock waiting on product to arrive. Harry asked grocers if he manufactured potato chips if they would purchase from him? The response was positive and Harry then started the Husman Potato Products Company. In 1937 Husman's installed its first automatic potato chip fryer. In 1949 Husman installed their first semiautomatic packaging machines. In 1967 the company name was changed to the present Husman's Snack Foods Company.
