State chip maker Mister Bee to resume operations
PARKERSBURG, W.Va. -- Mister Bee Potato Chips Co. is resuming production with the help of a private investor.
The Parkersburg company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy last November. Since then, Mister Bee says it has restructured its organization and operations.
Mister Bee says in a news release that production will resume in the middle of the second quarter.
The company didn't identify the private investor. But it says the investor and others involved in Mister Bee are committed to keeping its operations in Parkersburg.
The family-owned company was founded in 1951 by Leo and Sara Klein. It serves West Virginia, Ohio and eastern Kentucky.
