A Reasonably Short Story . . .
The Pecan House was first opened in the small South Texas town of Cuero by J.F. Elder in the 1960's. Lined with beautiful pecan trees, the Guadalupe River winds its way along the eastern edge of the city. Just about every city yard boasts at least one tree. So, Mr. Elder spent the busy pecan season, which runs from November to mid-January, brokering pecans and cracking pecans for the general public. Once the trees finished producing and had been harvested, the doors were closed until the next pecan season. When Wayne Wolf took over the business forty years later, he expanded to include selling fresh cracked pecan halves and pieces in a simple gift box.
The New Owners Story. . .
Erwin and Annette Rath purchased the Cuero Pecan House in June of 2003 and launched Sharing a strong business sense and a talent for gourmet cooking and adventure with Erwin, Annette was beginning to hatch “nutty” ideas. In 2006, when new partner Mary Beth Finney came on board, she and Annette, known as the 2 Nuts, developed their own recipes for candied and seasoned pecans, added gourmet foods and new gift baskets. A more efficient shipping system was implemented and they began selling their products wholesale to retailers throughout the year. During pecan season of 2012, Erwin and Annette, again, became the sole owners of this ever-expanding business. Their inventory not only includes in-shell pecans (during the season), shelled pecan halves and pieces and candied pecans, but also in-house created cakes, cookies, pies, casseroles and flavored snacks. Bottled products include Jr.’s Seasonings (Erwin’s special blends), Texas olive and pecan oils, jams, jellies, syrups, dessert toppings and Absolutely Wild BBQ sauces. And no pecan house would be complete without a variety of nutcrackers.
