CHARLESTON, SC (WCBD) – A company that produces hand-made, Lowcountry-inspired crisps is partnering with a Charleston-based production company made up of Danny McBride, David Gordon Green and Jody Hill.
Lowcountry Kettle, located on Dorchester Road, was founded in 2016 and uses Bulls Bay salts to create a variety of pot-baked potato chip flavors like Bloody Mary, mustard barbecue sauce, spicy chili cheese, and State Fair fried pickle to name a few. -a.
The company claims that the new support from the production company has helped accelerate its growth and vision. They say the new partnership “will further expand Lowcountry Kettle’s business network and provide valuable business and marketing advice and mentorship to the growing business.”
“We believe this partnership will provide greater visibility and give our brand a real sense of credibility,” said Andrew Trumbull, Co-Founder of Lowcountry Kettle. “Rough House is such a talented and creative force in its industry and already has an established fan base. We are big fans of their work and hope new consumers of the brand will be intrigued as well. “
Rough House Productions is known for a myriad of film and television productions in the Lowcountry, such as Halloween 2018, The Righteous Gemstones and Vice Principals.
“When we watch movies we’ve always preferred the loud, loud crackle of a potato chip instead of the soft crackle of popcorn, so the partnership with Lowcountry Kettle was a no-brainer for us,” said the Rough House Pictures co-founder Danny McBride.
Trumbull said the Rough House Pictures team became fans of Lowcountry Kettle after a reunion in 2019.
“If you work at Rough House, there’s a good chance you’ll have some Lowcountry Kettle crumbs on your shirt by the end of the day,” said Jody Hill, co-founder of Rough House Pictures.
“We are delighted to partner with Lowcountry Kettle. Not only does this company create an incredible product with unique Lowcountry flavors, but we are proud of the way they represent this region in which we work and live, ”said Rough House Pictures co-founder David Gordon Green.
The full line of Lowcountry Kettle products was recently purchased by the southern region of Whole Foods Market, which has a total of 45 stores in six states.
Trumbull said the partnership with Rough House Pictures would further expand the business network and provide important business and marketing advice and mentorship to the growing company.
Lowcountry Kettle is expected to have a new flavor next year, in addition to producing larger, family-sized bags in 2022.
