Western Nut Company

Fresh Assorted Nuts

With a wide selection of personalized gifts and custom-made baskets, Western Nut Company is a gift-giving tradition that makes a lasting impression. We’ve been around a long time, and we still do things the old-fashioned way. We roast and mix every batch of fresh nuts by hand. This ensures every nut is roasted to perfection.

You are invited to visit our factory store conveniently located at 434 South 300 West in Salt Lake City, where you can browse our store and catch a glimpse of our roasting process. Western Nut is much more than gourmet delicious nuts too. Our buyers search the world for exquisite gifts and gourmet candies.

Lovely gift options for anyone who likes nuts in particular, but lots of other goodies too. Nice place. :)” – Bonnie Wright, Google Review

Western Nut Company is BEYOND unique! They have such a wide variety of everything from nuts to dried fruits to candy. I really liked the Porter music player as well! We came in for Pepitas nuts with Cajun seasoning but they only had three bags in stock and we needed six bags. So an employee offered to make us some! It took five minutes for us to get fresh nuts and they were to die for! Not to mention that the other employees were super kind. I could not believe how big this store was too! I love it here!” – Kylee Haslam, Google Review

Western Nut Company products are both fresh and delicious. The mixed nut boxes make great gifts. Their customer service is outstanding. I ordered my gifts on line this year, but don’t pass up the opportunity to visit their store in Salt Lake City, Utah.” – Rick Roper, Google Review

Mercer Family

In April 1966, Wellington McDonald and Helen Bean founded the Western Nut Company. Their hallmark of success was acquiring the highest quality of raw nuts in the industry then roasting them to perfection, and that tradition has continued to this very day.

Jerry M. Place, David Gillette and Francis Bay acquired Western Nut Company in 1983 and are proud to be nearing 50 years of business in downtown Salt Lake City. After many years of selling nuts to Paul’s Candy Company and knowing the great reputation of Paul’s World Famous Brittles, we acquired Paul’s Candy Company in 2004 and brought both companies together under one roof. Now we know we have the greatest salty and sweet flavors for even the most discriminating customers.

Continuing the family-owned tradition — Loren, Darin & Lee Mercer – brothers – took over the business in 2018 with the commitment to providing the best nuts and chocolates to our customers. As owners of Western Nut, we will always buy only the finest ingredients, roasting the old-fashioned way – one batch at a time.
