Jackson's Honest Potato Chips become semi-finalist in Intuit's Small Business Big Game Competition

Jackson's Honest Potato Chips become semi-finalist in Intuit's Small Business Big Game Competition
October 30, 2013
Jackson's Honest Chips, a family-owned business making gluten-free potato chips with organic potatoes, organic coconut oil and sea salt has been named one of 20 semi-finalists in the Intuit Small Business Big Game competition. With almost 15,000 entries, the field has been narrowed down to 20 small businesses who are competing for an incredible prize - a 30-second custom television ad that will air during football's biggest game on Feb. 2, 2014.

Megan and Scott Reamer have always been committed to providing healthier foods for their four children. Their passion for healthy food began when their first son Jackson was born. He was an active toddler but shortly after turning two, Jackson started to develop some weakness in his feet. Over the next 18 months the weakness spread to his entire body and he gradually lost gross and fine motor skills.

Jackson's Honest Chips was born when Megan and Scott began making a healthier version of potato chips using local organic potatoes and coconut oil. Their kids loved them and when friends tried the chips they convinced the Reamer family to make it a business and go into production. "We started this with my son's health as the incentive. It's been a really positive way to tell his story,"Megan says. "The business we're doing now begins and ends with Jackson because we've come full circle. And being a part of the Intuit Small Business Big Game competition is an incredible honor for us."

For the next two weeks Intuit's 8,000 employees will be reviewing all 20 semi-finalists' submissions to the Intuit Small Business Big Game competition and vote on their favorite small business that best represents Intuit. The final four finalists will be announced on November 11, and then the public will ultimately vote for the winner.

"We couldn't be more thrilled or humbled by our selection as one of Intuit's Top 20 semi-finalists in the Small Business Big Game contest,"gleamed Megan Reamer.
