This is Chris Redgrave for Zions Bank Speaking on Business.

With 50 plus years of being in business, the folks at Western Nut have figured out the secret to their success. Loren Mercer, chief operations officer, understands through buying only the best ingredients and premium nuts of all varieties, he can create the highest-quality product they’re famous for.

Western Nut offers cashews, roasted almonds, Macademia nuts and cinnamon-roasted pecans which are a customer favorite! At Western Nut, Father’s Day is their second highest-grossing holiday for candy and nut sales. And if you’re the type who likes the combination of sweet and salty, Western Nut also has a selection of candies, like their amazing peanut brittle, chocolate-covered nuts and yogurt pretzels, made with recipes from Paul’s Candy Company that they purchased 14 years ago. This has taken the operation to the next level of providing premium nuts and fabulous candy.

Western Nut still roasts one batch of nuts at a time, making sure the oil is at the perfect temperature so all nuts are evenly cooked. And anytime nuts are salted, it’s the Western Nut staff that adds salt by hand, in the old-fashioned way to ensure it’s done right every time.
