Nassau Candy has acquired the assets of Pennsylvania Dutch Candies, a national manufacturer and distributor of top selling nostalgic confections and novelties.
This acquisition will give Nassau Candy an increased sales presence across the country, additional merchandising solutions and expanded custom products.
A subsidiary of the Warrell Corporation, Pennsylvania Dutch Candies specializes in nostalgic products and supplies unique in-store candy and food displays, serving 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 distribution capabilities and stock of novelty, nostalgic and specialty products.
The addition of Pennsylvania Dutch Candies also expands Nassau Candy’s in-store merchandising and display offerings. Nassau Candy also has plans to launch an expansive range of customized products through Pennsylvania Dutch Candies and its AmuseMints division.
Existing Pennsylvania Dutch Candies customers and those Nassau Candy customers looking to see the new product offerings can visit the Pennsylvania Dutch Candies page on the Nassau Candy website. They can also call (516) 433-7100 to speak to a dedicated sales representative.
This is Nassau Candy's second acquisition this year. In early March, the company acquired natural products sales and distribution company Island Natural.
