FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


Is there really a Tim?

Our famous Jalapeño potato chips have consistently ranked number one. Our customers rave on about this product. Second favorite is our Hawaiian Sweet Maui Onion and third is Tim's Original potato chips.

Our potatoes are specially grown on family owned farms located in the great Northwest — Quincy, Toppenish and Ellensburg in Washington State; Portland, Oregon; and Bakersfield, California.


Do you make a reduced fat potato chip?

Tim's have always been produced with no trans fats.


Does Tim's do tours of the facility?
