6/24/15 – Yahoo write up

I had the best Monday ever yesterday.  I was flipping through the yahoo headlines and found an article on potato chips across the country.  At first I thought oh  to bad we aren’t in there.  And Then…..I read it and we are pretty much at the top.  I was completely shocked.  I had no idea.  paste this into your browser   …

6/18/15 – Tuna Crabs in Newport

I went down to the boat this morning just to check on it on my way to work and took these pictures of the Pelagic Crabs (aka Tuna Crabs) that have been washing up on shores from San Diego to Huntington Beach.  Two of these pictures are from Balboa Island and the other one with the really red blanket of …

6/12/15 – Good Week

I had a good week this week.  I was really surprised at the response I got over the weekend from a facebook post on our page asking for help finding which markets you (our fans) think we should be in.  You can see the post on our facebook page.  Just search Rusty’s Chips from the search box and like our …

6/5/15 – events in Newport this weekend

There are a couple of cool things going on this weekend in Newport Beach. On Saturday the 6th there is a wooden boat show at the Balboa Yacht Club on Bayside Drive.  I hope I can make it down there, old wooden boats are pretty cool. Then on Sunday the 7th the Balboa Island Parade is going on.  My son …

6/2/15 – golden west st.

This driving to work on PCH thing is really cool.  I get to check the surf everyday.  Wish I could paddle out everyday as well, but we are pretty busy and I need to be in the office.  That’s fine with me, the ocean isn’t going anywhere and I usually get out in the mornings on the weekends. I figured …

5/29/15 – Sailing

Surfing and Sailing are really important to Me.  My Dad Rusty #1 taught my twin brother and I to Surf at a really young age, but it wasn’t until we were about 10 or 11 that we learned to sail.  It was in the summer on Balboa Island in Newport Beach, CA in the early 90’s.  Being typical 10 year olds …

5/27/15 – Tortilla Chips

It’s a little cloudy this morning as I pull up to the chip plant.  The VW bus looks really blue against the grey sky and the green palm trees.  I usually come in the front door but today I decided to walk around the back.  My phone buzzing in my pocket as I set off the motion sensors for our security …

5/22/15 – Catalina views

I was driving to work today along PCH and it was absolutely amazing out.  We had a little rain so there were tons of really dramatic clouds in the sky.  The Bay was glassy smooth and the sailboats were resting at anchor like trees in a meadow.  As I was crossing the Santa Ana River jetties I couldn’t help but …

5/21/15 – New Hood

We started the install of the new hood yesterday.  It will be a couple weeks before we can use it, and I still have to get the new fryers but it is up.  I’m very excited!!  Once it is operational we can easily double our production. I feel I can now go out and try to land some bigger accounts.  We have never …

5/18/15 – catamaran beached and PCH thoughts

  I think I’m going to start taking PCH to work everyday.  It takes a little longer, but I’m lucky to have the option.  I always just jump on the freeway out of habit….time to break the habit.  I get to drive through Corona Del Mar, Newport Beach and Huntington Beach all the way up to Golden West Street.  I …
