Our Story

During the early days of the Company, Tom could be found supervising the production at the factory prior to delivering products to customers personally.

RITE STUFF FOODS, INC. was created in 1989 by founder and current president Mr. Thomas J. (Tom) Madden. Encouraged by past successes in the food industry, Tom recognized the need for quality potato product options and envisioned a new company with innovative ideas and creative products that would service the strict requirements of restaurants, foodservice operators and consumers. Recipes and products were developed and dreams turned to reality.

As RSF customer base expanded, so did the need for a larger facility with more capacity. Accordingly, in 1999, RSF relocated to its new home and permanent location in the heart of “Idaho® Potato Country”. One production line soon became six lines and a new technologically advanced facility was erected and attached in 2010.

Today, RSF continues to adhere to the original charge of Tom Madden:

Provide innovative and creative potato products that will service all segments of the industry.

As the leading specialty potato product manufacturer in the United States, RSF offers an ever growing wide range of tasty side dishes and alternatives that include twice baked potatoes, potato skins, potato boats, battered and breaded wedges, fried and filled skins, breakfast bites, potato rollers, extruded products, grilling potatoes, potato products that include bacon, chicken and pork and a whole new line of items between R&D and Production.

RSF is USDA inspected, SQF certified, Gluten Free, and utilizes only Idaho® potatoes.


With an innate sense of flexibility and adventure, RSF has often adjusted and conformed to custom customer demands to develop proprietary products and enhance the reputation of being a reliable partner.


RSF remains innovative, customer friendly and accessible.
