FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): A Fort Wayne company that likely found its way into your home is closing its doors.

Seyfert’s Snack Foods has notified employees that it is ceasing operations because it is no longer profitable. The news caught many workers off guard.

“I don’t know what we’re going to do now,” driver Brad Borntreger told our Partners in News, ABC21. “There are going to be a lot of people out of a job.”

Sources said the manufacturer of chips, pretzels, cheese puffs and other snacks tried to sell the company but were unable to find a viable alternative to closure.

Company officials confirmed that Seyfert’s products will not be manufactured any longer. Employees will receive one week of pay for every year of service and will be offered job placement services.

Seyfert’s was founded in Fort Wayne in 1934 by Charles Seyfert, who moved west to Indiana from Pennsylvania to launch the business.
