While working as engineers installing and servicing bagging machines in snack food plants throughout the United States, Jay Poore and his older brother, Don, saw first-hand the finer details involved with potato-chip production.
What they noticed during that time was a perceived void in the marketplace. As a result, the brothers decided to develop their own snack brand by creating a kettle-cooked chip that was thicker than traditional varieties. So, in 1983, Bob’s Texas Style Potato Chips was born. After only three years, the chips became so popular with consumers that the brothers sold the business to a partner, moved to Arizona and launched the Poore Brothers brand. Starting with only a single kettle and one delivery truck, they relied on sampling and word-of-mouth advertising to grow the business.

The strategy paid off and, in 1996, the company went public with the help of a private investment group.
In May 2006, as part of the transition from a regional potato chip producer to a national marketer of snack foods, the Poore Brothers name was replaced with The Inventure Group to create a corporate identity that more closely reflects our diverse line-up of innovative consumer brands sold both nationally and internationally.
