TGI Friday's™ Cheddar Bacon Potato Skins, An Inventure Foods, Inc. Snack, To Star In 'Food Factory' Segment

Segment to Air on Fyi Network Nationwide on Aug. 28, 2014 at 9 p.m. EDT

PHOENIX, Aug. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- This week, Inventure Foods, Inc.'s (NASDAQ: SNAK) licensed snack food line, TGI Friday's Potato Skins, a fan favorite, will make its debut on the Fyi Network's 'Food Factory' on Aug. 28, 2014 at 9 p.m. (EDT). The segment will feature the line's popular Cheddar Bacon Potato Skins variety and Steve Sklar, senior vice president and general manager for Inventure Foods, Inc. will guide viewers through the process of making one of America's favorite snack chips. 

Cheddar Bacon Potato Skins are made from real potatoes and use a dual sheeting method of preparation to create a dark side and a light side, just like authentic potato skins. The chips are then seasoned with the perfect combination of savory bacon and cheddar to create a hearty and satisfying snack chip. Potato Skins are also available in Bacon Ranch, Sour Cream & Onion, Cheddar Sour Cream, Jalapeno Cheddar and Chili Cheese.

Since the brand crossed over to the snack chip aisle in 2000, the TGI Friday's snack line has become a consumer favorite in grocery, vending and convenience channels, providing premium snack options that parallel the variety of flavor combinations found on Fridays' menus. In addition to Potato Skins, snack line staples include Cheddar Cheese Crunchy Fries, Extreme Heat Crunchy Fries, Jalapeno Poppers, Mozzarella Sticks and Onion Rings.
