Neil Hannum – The Chip Peddler

Durango Snack Werks, home of the Chip Peddler, was started on the first day of 2010 with the simple idea that great snacks don’t have to come from large factories and made with ingredients that you can’t pronounce.

Here are some of our founding principles that we keep in mind during every decision we make:

  1. Keep the dollars as local as possible
  2. Use fair trade practices
  3. Strive to implement environmentally responsible production policies
  4. Give back to two wheeled sports.

Our process starts by purchasing each ingredient from single origin sources. This allows us to build personal relationships with our independent producers, creating a direct connection between the people, the land and the chips we make. We all know that every dollar spent locally goes that much further than one spent online because it gets recycled back into the community. This is known as the multiplier effect because every dollar spent on a local business goes to paying local taxes, hiring local employees & other ways of giving back which in essence help build a stronger community.
