Lay's

Lay’s®  began in 1932, when Herman W. Lay started a small business in Nashville Tennessee distributing potato chips made by a company in Atlanta, Georgia. Six years later Herman bought that company to form H. W. Lay & Company.

Innovation being a driving factor in everything Herman did. H. W. Lay & Company began producing potato chips on a continuous potato chip machine in 1942. This reputation increased even further when a research lab was opened to develop new products and flavours.

In 1944, Herman simplified the company’s name to the one we all know today: Lay’s®  Potato Chips and became the first snack food company to advertise on television. 

Finally in 1961, Lay’s®  crossed the border into Canada and began to grow in popularity. Simply put, Lay’s®  potato chips won over Canadians with their fresh and crispy potato taste. And the momentum continued. By 1997, Lay’s®  was the undisputed leader, crowned the favourite potato chip brand in Canada and continues to be the favourite choice among Canadian potato chip lovers.
