History of Tom`s Peanuts
Tom`s Foods Inc. is a privately owned, Columbus, Georgia-based company that distributes more than 300 snack food products, 250 of which it manufactures. Tom`s specializes in single-serve and vending machine sales. Its business is divided among five food categories: nuts, sandwich crackers, chips, baked good, and candy. In the 1920s, the company was built on its toasted peanuts, but Tom`s now offers a variety of flavored peanuts, cashews, pistachios, and sunflower seeds. Peanut butter filled sandwich crackers was another early success and the sandwich category is now supplemented by cheese filled crackers and cream filled cookies. Tom`s chips products include potato, tortilla, and corn chips, as well as popcorn, pretzels, and extruded products like cheese puffs. Tom`s baked goods include cookies, cakes, and pastries. In the candy category, Tom`s sells candy coated nuts, candy bars, hard and rolled candies, and novelty candies. Tom`s maintains manufacturing facilities in Columbus, Georgia; Knoxville, Tennessee; Perry, Florida; Corsicana, Texas; and Fresno, California. Although Tom`s products are best known in the South, they are distributed in 43 states through company-owned and independent distributors.
