Kar’s Nuts was founded in 1933, in a tiny kitchen in their home across the street from Tiger Stadium in Detroit. There, Sue Kar roasted and sold peanuts to Tiger fans. The peanuts became so popular that a manufacturing plant was soon built to distribute peanuts to retailers throughout the Detroit Metro. The company was sold to the Nicolay family in the 1960’s, and continues today as a family-run business. Still based in Michigan, Kar’s Nuts now roasts and packages nuts and trail mixes carried by convenience stores, grocery chains and club stores throughout America.
