American Nut Company, a local business owned by Lisa Robitaille, specializing in Bavarian Glazed Roasted Almonds & Pecans blended with a touch of cinnamon, a splash of vanilla, and a bit of sugar that creates a unique spin on “State Fair” snacks that are different and healthier.
Robitaille grew up in a family of business owners and cooks. She started American Nut Company in early 2017, shortly after moving to Columbus. She says she knew she wanted to start her own business while working in the corporate world and always believed the North Market was the perfect place to make that dream come true. American Nut Company was born when Robitaille combined her family’s entrepreneurial spirit and her love of cooking.
Originally, the company began offering cinnamon vanilla flavored pecans, almonds, cashews, and walnuts. Today, they offer 30+ handmade nut flavors, both sweet and savory. Most recently, popcorn has been added to the menu. American Nut Company created and makes a selection of popcorn varieties. Each day, one variety will be featured and can be purchased warm throughout the day.
American Nut Company also has a continuing collaboration with another Columbus-based business, Al’s Delicious Popcorn, to offer additional flavors. Using their own seasonings and several from North Market Spices, American Nut Company has made different concoctions combining popcorn and their signature nut mixes. One of their fan favorites is their homemade version of Cracker Jack that is made from Al’s salted caramel popcorn and American Nut Company’s homemade toffee peanuts.
