Nassau Candy acquires assets of Pennsylvania Dutch Candies
Nassau Candy, a manufacturer and wholesale distributor of confectionery, gourmet food, and private label/customized souvenir products, has acquired the assets of Pennsylvania Dutch Candies. This latest acquisition will add an increased sales presence across the country, additional merchandising solutions, and expanded custom products.
Pennsylvania Dutch Candies, a subsidiary of the Warrell Corporation, is a confectionery manufacturer and distributor specializing in nostalgic products, and a supplier of unique in-store candy and food displays, which has served customers from coast to coast for more than 50 years. Pennsylvania Dutch Candies’ customers include restaurants, tourist attractions, zoos, ice cream parlors, and gift shops. Over its tenure, Pennsylvania Dutch Candies has grown from a local Pennsylvania-based supplier to one that supports customers in all 50 states.
“We’re excited to bring such an established, nostalgic brand like Pennsylvania Dutch Candies under the Nassau Candy fold,” said Andrew Reitman, president of Nassau Candy South. “Their line of wholesome, old-fashioned confections and unique merchandising displays add a retro, old general store feel to any business. Our customers will love these new additions while Pennsylvania Dutch Candies’ current customers will enjoy access to our extensive lines of confections and personalized gifts. All will benefit from the additional sales team members, allowing us to provide even more personalized service.”
The acquisition brings new opportunities for Nassau Candy’s customers and the current account base of Pennsylvania Dutch Candies. Current Pennsylvania Dutch Candies’ customers will have access to Nassau Candy’s robust distribution capabilities and stock of novelty, nostalgic, and specialty products. The addition of Pennsylvania Dutch candies expands Nassau Candy’s in-store merchandising and display offerings and provides current customers access to Pennsylvania Dutch Candies’ confections. Nassau Candy plans to launch an expansive range of customized products through Pennsylvania Dutch Candies and its AmuseMints division.
This is the second acquisition announced by Nassau Candy this year. In early March, the company announced the acquisition of natural products sales and distribution company, Island Natural.
