About Aleeces

image004My Inspiration My Mother

High up in the mountains, not far from the Cedars of Lebanon, the land of Khalil Gebran, is a small village called Akabet Hairouna

This is where Aleece was taught by her mother and grandmother the tradition of making the pita bread. She carried this tradition to East Peoria, Illinois.

Aleece’s Pita Chips is a guarded family recipe, a tradition in excellence that provides the best in quality. Our commitment to maintaining this quality and using only all natural ingredients makes Aleece’s Pita Chips the best in the nation.

We promise you the best quality. Our reputation depends on it.

Competitive Comparison

To differentiate ourselves from all of the others, we stress quality and authenticity of the ingredients, and the heritage of the family recipe.

We sell more than a bag of pita chips. We sell high quality ingredients, carefully put together in a masterful blend that can’t be matched in taste or true authenticity.

These are simple products that must be presented in a way that encourages the consumer to just give us a chance. Once they try our product, we will have a long-term relationship with them.

As in similar food items, we can charge a premium for what we supply. The market has shown it will buy our product over more readily known names because of the richness and authentic taste of our pita chips and cheese spread.
