As Chomps evolves, we stay in constant search of those who are experts in their field and specialize in areas that will bring business success. With unprecedented growth in the last two years, we’re thrilled to bring on Jason as an undeniable asset to our senior leadership team.” 

In his new role as Senior Vice President of Operations with Chomps, Dols is charged with the development and implementation of long-term operations and supply chain strategies by leading planning, procurement, manufacturing, quality, logistics, and continuous improvement teams. 

“I’ve always been intrigued to work on brands and products that I enjoy as a consumer, and Chomps is exactly that,”  said Jason Dols, the new SVP of Operations for Chomps. “It’s a thrilling time to join Chomps, as the company is set for significant growth in 2024 and I look forward to supporting that momentum with my operations expertise.”

Chomps was founded in 2012 by co-founders, Pete Maldonado and Rashid Ali, with a modest $6,500 investment and a dream to create the healthiest, on-the-go protein snacks that don’t compromise on taste. On a mission to inspire, educate, and fuel the community with accessible, sustainable, and real food, the addition of Dols to the Chomps senior leadership team further supports the company’s continued growth as they continue retail expansion, distribution, and product innovation. Chomps’ products are made from the highest quality, sustainably sourced proteins, with no hidden or harmful ingredients.
