It has been a long journey to where austiNuts is today. Doron llai, our founder, grew up snacking on fresh roasted nuts and seeds, and dried along the sunny shores of the eastern Mediterranean. After earning a bachelors degree in psychology and statistics from the University of Haifa, Doron then pursued a doctoral degree in psychology at the University of Texas in Austin, TX. He snacked on nuts and dried fruits through rigorous hours of study, but he was unable to find dry roasted nuts with the same fresh taste and crunchiness as the ones he enjoyed growing up. This insatiable craving planted the seeds for the creation of austiNuts, Inc.
From the time Doron began practicing clinical psychology, he devoted his free time to developing his vision of a dry roasting nut company. He spent time overseas apprenticing with some of the best nut roasters in the world prior to opening the austiNuts retail store in Austin, Texas in 1993.
The original retail store had a kitchen and two imported custom-build traditional dry roasting ovens. Customers quickly became devotees of the same style of fresh, crunchy nuts that Doron was so fond of in his youth. The warm, friendly atmosphere and delicious edibles won over the hearts and taste buds of Austinites.
austiNuts continuous expansion led to the birth of the austiNuts Wholesale Inc. in 2003. Housed in a 10,000 square foot facility, the plant is responsible for manufacturing and distribution of products incuding freshly dry roasted premium quality gourmet nuts and seeds, dried fruits and other healthy snacks. These products are shipped to hundreds of customers across the United States, Alaska, Hawaii and Canada. austiNuts continues to operate its original retail store and now offers direct sales to the public at www.austinuts.com.
