A Parkersburg Potato Chip maker will begin producing chips again soon.

Mister Bee Potato Chip Company President Douglas Klein announced the news on the company's facebook page this morning.     

He wrote, "I am happy to report that Mister Bee Potato Chip Co. has been approved for Post Petition Financing, which means we can accept financing to begin purchasing of raw materials needed to begin producing Mister Bee Potato Chips again shortly."

Mister Bee filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection In November.

At the time, Klein says there were no plans to close the company and he was awaiting approval of a new investor.

Mister Bee was founded in 1951.

It is the only manufacturer of potato chips in West Virginia.
