Rastelli Foods Group, based in Swedesboro, and Nuts.com, out of Cranford, are two family owned and operated businesses that speak to New Jersey’s rich entrepreneurial legacy. With humble beginnings striving for the American Dream, Jeffrey Braverman, CEO of Nuts.com and Ray and Tony Rastelli, founders of Rastelli Foods Group, are true visionaries in the world of food. From modest neighborhood storefronts to an e-commerce enterprise and an industry leading supplier and retailer, these companies have reached enormous success.

In fact, Nuts.com was just approved by the New Jersey Economic Development Authority for a Grow New Jersey incentive on July 13, 2017 to open a state-of-the-art corporate office in Jersey City, where it plans to create more than 150 new jobs.
