About Us

The Nutty Bavarian is a full service company which trains and supports its licensees. In short, our goal is to enable licensees to make money selling cinnamon glazed nuts at their locations.


The Nutty Bavarian began business in 1989 selling fresh roasted, cinnamon glazed nuts using a Bavarian recipe developed by Bruno the Bavarian.

The first Nutty Bavarian was located in Orlando, Florida. In 1994, with money borrowed from his family, David Brent purchased the company, which had grown to ten locations, and began its rapid expansion. By 1996, The Nutty Bavarian was among INC’s list of the 500 fastest growing private companies in America, with Nutty Bavarian locations numbering 100.

The Nutty Bavarian’s growth came from the design and development of a new fully automated nut roasting system. David Brent put his engineering background to good use, developing the automated nut roaster that cost thousands of dollars less than the German imports — yet is easier to use and maintain.  More importantly, the Nutty Bavarian nut roaster produces a consistent higher quality product with no broken nuts!

The Nutty Bavarian began licensing its system to independent operators who opened locations in major malls, theme parks, sports stadiums and arenas, zoos, and airports throughout the United States. In addition, The Nutty Bavarian became a side business for many professionals who operate at local fairs and festivals on weekends. The Nutty Bavarian has also enjoyed great success as an add-on product to candy stores and other existing concession operations.
