The first black-owned, gourmet-seasoned potato chip brand is celebrating its third anniversary in business.
A few years ago at The Black HomeSchool, we profiled Dondre Anderson and his two daughters Amina and Amari (all pictured). These Anderson Family members are the founders of Symphony Chips, an Atlanta, Georgia-based snack brand, which has reached its third-year benchmark in existence as a profitable business.
Prior to starting Symphony Chips, Dondre was the main Anderson Family benefactor behind a food seasoning brand called All A’s Spices.
However, to venture off into the potato chip business, he sold the family spice company and used the proceeds to build Symphony Chips along with his two daughters. Dondre’s decision has paid off in many ways.
Symphony Chips is one of the very few black-owned potato chip brands in the world. Dondre’s daughters started off as his primary business and sweat equity partners at a very young age. This family business got its name after the daddy/daughter(s) trio first sold their then fledgling potato chip product line in a concession stand at the 2016 Atlanta Symphony Orchestra.
The Andersons use the same secret family seasoning recipe for Symphony Chips that made All A’s Spices so great. In the infancy stages of their family business, Dondre and his two lovely daughters would frequent Atlanta’s
Sevananda super market to sell their products. Sevananda is a health foods grocery store, which serves the metro area.
Health food is up the Andersons’ alley when it comes to their Symphony Chips. These all-natural snack products do not contain gluten or MSG. They are more meticulously manufactured than the conventional potato chip. The Andersons have been profiled by many black-owned media outlets for the success they have enjoyed on their three-year journey.
“The Anderson family, founders of Symphony Chips, pride themselves on working together to sustain their business and continue their growth. Dondre Anderson and his two daughters, Amina and Amari, have gone through several obstacles to get to where they are today,” read a May 13, 2019 report by BlackNews.com.
Despite their early obstacles, Dondre and his two daughters are now enjoying the truly splendid and freedom-based benefits of entrepreneurship. View the full Symphony Chips product line here.
