If it's the same family/firm, which I believe it was, they also owned Wheeler's Restaurant on Market Street in the Uptown area, about 2 doors north of Indianola Ave.  They only used cottonseed oil and made the best potato chips ever...

If I'm not mistaken, they were located on the East Side on Prospect Street. They also sold bottled water.

I just acquired a large metal can from Wheelers Potato Chips of Youngstown, Ohio. 

Does anyone know the history of this brand/company.
