Miss Vickie’s Chips started on Bill & Vickie Kerr’s potato farm in 1987 in Ontario
In Miss Vickie’s Kitchen
“Miss Vickie” is Vickie Kerr, the Canadian entrepreneur who created Miss Vickie’s Chips in her kitchen on the farm in 1987 in Ontario, Canada.
Vickie wanted to make healthier snack for her four young children, so she created a recipe using the potatoes her husband, Bill, grew. She left the skins on, sliced and hand-stirred them one small batch at a time. She used non-hydrogenated, 100% pure oil with no preservatives or anti-foaming agents. When the golden chips were cooked, she sprinkled them lightly with sea salt, because that’s what she always used in her own kitchen.
Miss Vickie’s business grew so successfully on the New Lowell farm that two other Miss Vickie’s potato chip kitchens had to be established to satisfy customer demand. One kitchen was located in Quebec and the other in British Columbia. By 1992, Miss Vickie’s had become a Canadian national potato chip brand!
After more than thirty-five years spent preparing food for her family in her kitchen, Vickie Kerr had the idea to write a book to compile her family’s history through the food they love to eat! The title of her book is “Miss Vickie’s Kitchen”. In addition to family recipes, Miss Vickie’s book contains a photo album and diary of the Miss Vickie’s business “start-up”, and a compilation of “Letters to Miss Vickie”. Release date: November 2014.
