Tim’s Cascade Snacks Are Now the Official Snack of the Portland Timbers!

Algona, WA (February 2012)Tim’s® Cascade Snacks announced today that the makers of the famous Hawaiian® Kettle Style Chips have been added to the lineup of the Portland Timbers, becoming the official snack of the Major League Soccer Club in Portland, Oregon.

This new partnership will bring Tim’s Cascade Snacks as one of the Timbers sponsors. The partnership includes advertising and use of Timbers logo in retail packaging that highlights that partnership.  Tim’s will also supply great snacks to the team, as well as affiliated soccer camps,   throughout the year.

“We think the Portland Timbers are a perfect match for Tim’s, especially since we are both great Northwest brands.  That, combined with the fact that the majority of our potatoes are grown in Oregon, just 30 minutes from JELD-WEN Field, makes us a natural fit” says Jeff Leichleiter, General Manager of Tim’s Cascade Snacks.  “’Team work is very important, on and off the field, and we are looking forward to a great season together!”

Tim’s Cascade Snacks has been offering tasty snacks to consumers since 1986.  The complete line of Tim’s Cascade Snacks, which began with kettle style chips, has since expanded to include Hawaiian Kettle Style Potato Chips, Onion Rings and Erin’s All-Natural Popcorn.

"Our partnership with Tim's Cascade Snacks is another example of the Timbers’ commitment to partnering with quality Pacific Northwest companies that offer our supporters a fantastic product throughout the region, and at JELD-WEN Field," said Ryan Brach, Timbers Senior Vice President of Business Development and Broadcasting.

About Tim’s® Snacks
Tim's has been creating our famous chips in the shadow of the Cascade Mountain range since 1986 using an old family recipe. By starting with premium potatoes direct from family owned farms and only the finest blends of real seasonings, we think you'll agree that you have discovered what you have been looking for from your first satisfying crunch.

Just like the mountains that surround us, we have risen to the challenge of creating great tasting snacks. We have proven that a chip crunches louder, tastes superior and satisfies better when it is prepared by people who take pride in a well made snack. Our products are still created one batch at a time. And as always - NO TRANS FATS! Many people have told us that Tim's creates the best snacks anywhere. We believe once you've tried them, you'll agree.
