Enter the Get Fit, Be Healthy, Stay OnTrac photo contest to win a Nuts.com healthy prize pack! Details here, enter here.

Nuts.com with L3.jpgWhat began as a small nut shop in the late 1920s, has expanded into a fully operational business servicing customers across the country with a team of 200 employees and over 3,000 products… now that’s NUTS!

OnTrac had the opportunity to connect with one of our customers, Nuts.com. In this video, Jeff Braverman, the “Chief Nut” of this amazing brand, shares the story of how Nuts.com came to be what it is today.

Nuts.com b & w 3.jpg Nuts.com b & w 2.jpg

In 1929, on the brink of the Depression, Jeff’s father and grandfather “Poppy” Sol took a leap of faith and started a small nut company in Newark, New Jersey formally known as the Newark Nut Company. The determination of the two men is what launched the Newark Nut Company into success. They began selling premium bulk nuts and dried fruit and quickly developed a reputation of providing the very finest and freshest nuts available.

In 1999, Jeff launched NutsOnline to bring a savory selection of more than 2,000 items right to customer’s doors. By 2011, NutsOnline became pretty well known across North America for great quality and service across a growing product offering. Their slogan, "We're more than just nuts," continued to ring true.

Nuts.com boxes.jpg

With several fans shortening the NutsOnline name to just Nuts.com consistently, sparked the change to the company name in January 2012. Despite the name change, they are still the same - the same family, the same values, the same quality, and the same level of care.

Now, over eight decades later, Jeff’s cousin David and himself represent the third generation of the family-owned business. Although much has changed, the philosophy has not, and they continue the family tradition of providing the same superb quality and service as in the past. Their customers, some in their 80's and 90's, still rave about the splendid quality and luscious flavor of the products that have made their company famous throughout the years.

The West Coast is a large market for Nuts.com and also a large market for OnTrac. Together OnTrac and Nuts.com have built a solid foundation of taking care of the customer and making sure that their deliveries are in the customer’s hands faster and more efficiently. Carolee Strong, Nuts.com Operations Manager at the Sparks, Nevada facility, says OnTrac is their number one carrier and customers receive everything they order the next day. OnTrac does about 95% of business in the Nuts.com Sparks, Nevada facility. They pick, pack and ship out the door with OnTrac.

Jeff says “It wasn’t just about getting out West, it was really trying to push that one-day footprint. It’s really cool to be sitting in Reno, Nevada and be able to hit the places on the West coast in one day. The proof is in the pudding our facilities are directly across the street from OnTrac.”

Nature Photography Day was created by the North American Nature Photography Association (NANPA) and was celebrated on June 15, by photographers all around the world. OnTrac joined the celebration by hosting a nature photography contest asking participants to share their photography taken in our eight service regions: California, Arizona, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Utah, Colorado and Idaho. For every photo we received, we made a donation to NANPA.  

The short contest ran on OnTrac’s Facebook page from June 1st to June 15th. The photos shared to our contest ranged from regions such as Grass Valley, Nevada City, McDowell Mountain Preserve and Big Sur. We appreciate everyone who participated and shared their photography with us, especially those who submitted multiple photos. Thank you for snapping, uploading and giving back with us.

OnTrac “Delivering Hope” to Toys For Tots on Behalf of J. De Sigio Construction, Inc.

Posted on Dec 18, 2015 8:00:00 AM

On_Trac_-_15.jpgOnTrac randomly selected a winner for the Delivering Hope sweepstakes. The sweepstakes was created to allow businesses the opportunity to give back to their charity of choice and spread awareness to each organization during the season of giving. J. De Sigio Construction, Inc. entered the sweepstakes to nominate the U.S .Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program. As the winner of the sweepstakes, Toys for Tots will receive a prize from OnTrac of a $1,000 donation on behalf of J. De Sigio Construction, Inc.

On_Trac_-_09.jpgDuring the months of October, November and December, the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program collects new and unwrapped toys in order to distribute the toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community. As described on the Toys for Tots website, the goal of the program “is to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.” Campaign Coordinators plan and implement voluntary events throughout the year to increase awareness in Toys for Tots, such as golf tournaments, foot races and bicycle races. Toys for Tots accepts toy donations and monetary donations through their website, toysfortots.org.

On_Trac_-_26.jpgEric Pivaroff nominated Toys for Tots on behalf of J. De Sigio Construction, Inc., which provides quality water and sewer pipeline installation in Baldwin Park, California and surrounding areas. Pivaroff nominated this program with a message saying, “The USMC works very hard with local social services groups to help these children have a Christmas and operate on less than 3% overheads.” The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation is an IRS recognized 501(c)(3) not-for-profit public charity that provides the fundraising, funding and support for the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program since 1991. To donate online or to donate a new, unwrapped toy at your local Toys For Tots drop-off, please visit toysfortots.org.

On_Trac_-_40.jpgThe Delivering Hope contest ran for four weeks and received twenty-six total nominations. To learn about the other charities that were nominated, please visit the OnTrac blog, blog.ontrac.com.
