Our Story 

Founded in 2012, Watanut is your destination for delicious gourmet food gifts. Our gourmet nut mixes and shortbread cookies are created from scratch from the finest ingredients, baked fresh daily, and packed by hand.

Our mission is simple. We aim to inspire happiness, gratitude and appreciation through exceptionally creative gourmet food gifts.The name Watanut comes from our enthusiasm and passion for what we do. We’re nuts about high-quality, customer service, unbound creativity and absolutely delicious products. We take our inspiration from the foods, places and things we love. Watanut is enthusiastic, energetic, and our mixes and cookies themselves are unexpected.

We created Watanut for gifting, treating and celebrating. So whether you’re looking for the perfect birthday, holiday, or hostess gift or you’re in the market for original branded corporate gifts to wow your customers and employees, Watanut offers the best pecan gifts, gourmet nut gifts and cookies to spread your appreciation.

Augusta, Georgia natives and Watanut founders, Brian and Kam Kyzer, are adventurous, creative, and love to take the road less traveled. With strong southern roots, we put a modern twist on traditional gifting. We source local growers and shellers for Georgia’s best pecans for our gourmet pecan gifts. 

When you walk into a Watanut shop, you will be greeted by the smell of nuts roasting and cookies baking. We always have samples of our freshly made nut mixes and cookies for you to try. Build your own customized gift box for individuals or corporate gifts. We delight in making shopping for the perfect gift tasty and fun for you. Come visit!
