Houston Pecan Company has been providing delicious nuts, mixes, dried fruits for over 75 years!

Houston Pecan Company was started in 1942. In 1962, Leon Cooper, began working here. Shirley Cooper has been working here since the ’70’s. Their daughter Tobi joined in 2004. That means many years of nuts, fruits and mixes! Mr. Cooper passed away in May, 2015. While we miss his leadership and his jokes, his insistence on quality and customer service remain an important part of who we are.

We are committed to selling high quality, healthy nuts and dried fruit at the best possible price. We also sell beautiful gift tins and gift bags in a variety of sizes.

We welcome commercial customers. Please contact us for bulk pricing. Thank you!
