Jerry M. Place, David Gillette and Francis Bay

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.
