Our Mission Statement
Christian Faith, Family, and Finances, the last serving the former, and both serving to strengthen the first. Our first rule is the golden rule: to serve the Customer, as we would want to be served with quality, integrity, and enthusiasm! We will succeed by keeping "The Customer" as the personal goal statement of each Weaver Nut employee.
THE WEAVER NUT STORY
The business began in 1975 as Weaver Bulk Foods in the basement of the family home of E. Paul & Miriam Weaver. While operating from their home, Mr. And Mrs. Weaver owned and operated seven market stands. After five years they sold six of the market stands, retaining a location at the Cloister Shopping Center. In 1982, they moved the wholesale business from their home to a leased space behind the Cloister Shopping Center.
A year later, 1983, they opened a candy store called Weaver’s Candy and Cookie Outlet, also located in the Cloister Shopping Center. In 1986 and 1987 they built and moved to the current location at 1925 West Main Street, Ephrata, PA. With the move, the business was renamed to E. Paul Weaver III Nut Company, Inc. The Cloister location was later sold and the retail store was moved to this location also. By 1990, both the wholesale and retail had doubled in size. In 1993, the name and logo was changed to Weaver Nut Company, Inc.
Mr. Weaver also created a brand called Food Brokers International in 1995. This is a brokerage company designed to enhance Weaver Nut Company, Inc. with its importing and buying power. We now import products from around the world under the private label of Food Brokers International. Weaver Nut Company, Inc. operates as a Distributor and Retailer of Candies, Dried Fruits, Nuts, Coffees, Teas and Bulk Foods in Ephrata, PA. We deliver wholesale orders to parts of the NE and Midwest with our fleet of company trucks and ship to the entire United States and Canada via common carrier and FedEx or UPS. Wholesale customers can order on our wholesale website at www.weavernut.com. But, for those of you that are ready to eat your goodies when they arrive, you are on the right site!
In Fall of 2010 a new scanning/barcode point of sale system was implemented to make sales more quick and efficient for the customer. In Fall of 2011 our retail store name, previously known as Weaver Nut Candy & Cookie Outlet, was changed to Weaver Nut Sweets & Snacks to meet the expansion of our online business. During that time, we also have opened our new official Authorized FedEx Shipping Center to the public.
August 4, 2021, the retail store structure was damaged by a fire and required a full renovation.
February 14, 2022, the Weaver Family has made the decision to close the Retail Store & Ecommerce Division to focus efforts on the main portion of their business- Wholesale Distribution & Manufacturing.
We want to thank our many loyal customers and community for their support!
