A History of Nuts 'N Berries

Mark & Soodi Kick built the first store from an old gas station and opened it's doors on August 9, 1980 at 4568 Peachtree Rd. (at the corner of Ashford-Dunwoody Rd.). Prior to Nuts 'N Berries, Mark and Soodi worked in the field of architecture in the Los Angeles area. Much of their background with health foods comes from being on a vegetarian diet since 1969. As they pooled together the nutritional needs of the people in this area, they saw the importance of a full spectrum of special health food diet needs, and current research and information.

On October 15, 1980 they opened a café in the office portion of the station. The café was seen as a practical way to introduce healthy wholesome foods from the store to the community. The purpose of the café is to serve samples of traditional and original dishes made with healthy foods and inspire customers to think and live with the benefits of healthy foods.

In December of 1991, the owners purchased a property to build a new building that would expand the capacity of Nuts 'N Berries. May 19, 1992, Nuts 'N Berries was moved into the new facility just down the road, at 4274 Peachtree Rd., which immediately brought a 15% increase in sales. By the end of the year, sales had grown 30% above the same month from the year before.

The café is now run separately by Chef Chip and Kimberly Desormeaux. The cafe's self determination has led to increased growth and is bringing in the foot traffic that the store depends on.

Because of our focus on personal service and because of the ever-increasing awareness of the public that natural solutions work best, our store continues to grow well over the 15% average.

The store's current manager, Juanita Jackson, was hand-picked because of her extensive background in the health industry and her unique ability to rally staff and train them to be experts on the products we carry.

In her years at Nuts 'N Berries, Juanita has contributed tremendously to it's continued growth and in positioning our store as the leading provider of knowledge and service for health in our Brookhaven community. To most of our patrons, Juanita has become the face of Nuts 'N Berries!
