Episode Summary

Bachman Company Snacks
A behind the scenes tour of the Bachman Snack Company.Bachman went into business in 1844 with one small oven and a horse-drawn delivery cart. They concentrated on one product - pretzels. Today, Bachman has expanded their line to include potato chips, corn chips, tortilla chips, popcorn, and many variations based on these favorite snacks. While they keep up with demand for such snacks, the company has managed to hold on to a traditional method of production. They say they're the only major company that continues to use an automatic pretzel-twisting machine. The McGonigles, the family that bought Bachman in the 1930's, take the credit for the technological innovation.moreless
