Welcome to the Rose family!
Our chips have been a permanent bond between generations at every imaginable occasion. Like nothing else you've enjoyed, they become your own personal experience. The savory aroma enhances the palate - and instantly, you just know the time together is going to be filled with life-long memories. Don't believe us? Take a freshly baked chip, break off a piece and pass it around the table (a Rose Family tradition from the very beginning). Uniquely delectable on its own or with a spread of your choosing. The way we cook it is unique too - more well-done areas right along with the evenly baked parts to suit varying preferences and tastes in one chip! We promise the enjoyment of our chips will equal the ever-lasting happy memories borne as you were experiencing them.
Deep Heritage, Fine Food, Great Friends and Loving Family - not a bad way to pass time.
Oh, and here’s a little family secret: the leftovers at the bottom of the bag? Think breadcrumbs…Amazing!
Our mother, Goldie, was born in Poland in 1904. She married Dad, Isidore (Izzy), in Ontario, Canada in 1933 and the following year they found their way to New York. We were born and raised in Brooklyn. Mom and Dad weren’t educated but they worked hard (in clothing factories) and gave us a very good life in a deeply loving home.
Our fondest memories of Mom and Dad are at the family dinner table – filled with stories of the old country, the history of the Rose family, lots of laughter and dreams of our future. For those special meals, we would take one of Mom’s chips, break off a piece and pass it around for everyone to share. They were the communal bonds between us and a meal wasn’t complete until everyone had a piece to enjoy.
Goldie - Early Years
When the time came, Mom taught us how to make them. Then it was us who got to make the chips for those special dinners and family gatherings. To this day, it remains a great source of pride for us.
Eventually, we went to college, met our husbands, worked, created our own families and replicated Mom and Dad’s loving environment filled with a strong work ethic and dreams of the future for the kids….and now for the grandkids.
Mom and Dad were married for 46 wonderful years when Dad left us in 1983 at the age of 81. Mom left us a few years later; she was 79.
Their legacies will continue through countless generations to come and Mom’s chips will always bring joy to people (hopefully, everywhere eventually). When our boys were old enough, we passed the secret recipe along to them. They have since taught the grandchildren and the next generation isn't far behind. We will always be involved in the business even though the kids run it. After all, a mother knows best for all things!
We are grateful that you took the time to learn about our family and hope that Mom’s chips bring as much joy to you, your family and friends as much as they have to us over the decades. It would make Mom happy to know that they do.

If you have any thoughts or comments,
we really would love to hear them.
P.S. The original family name was spelled Rajs and it goes back to the 18th century (likely further, but that’s as far back as we can trace it). The family name is lovingly incorporated into the rose leaf petal in our logo.
We will never forget!
