Before founding The Walnut Group Inc, Jason Kikot travelled to the four corners of the globe. The same adventurous spirit which took him up the Amazon and down the Nile, led Jason to take control of his future by starting his own business in 1989. This spirit transcends into the company philosophy and many corporate successes achieved with every product launch!
Jason’s strong corporate and marketing background was built developing and implementing multi-million dollar projects for Fortune 500 companies like American Express and the Royal Bank of Canada. In 1995, The Walnut Group Inc. was formed, and and as of 2013, successful vending programs have been launched in 31 countries!
The Walnut Group’s team members have extensive experience in recognizing and developing unique cost effective and marketable business opportunities. One recurring comment that we have heard in virtually every marketplace is the “lack of hygiene and cleanliness” in traditional bulk vending machines. Taking this challenge to heart, we have put thousands of hours of extensive research and development into creating our patented “Candy Cups™” system.
Our factory in Seoul, South Korea has shipped over 2 million machines to date and have started the next phase with production of the “Candy Cups™”system.
With easy going charm and amiable personalities, The Walnut Group’s team is comfortable at all levels of business. “Success,” say the team members, “like a delicious dish, is a matter of combining the right ingredients.” Having found the ‘recipe for success,’ The Walnut Group team generously share it with others.
We are proud of our accomplishments and continue to strive for excellence in all of our endeavours.
Join us on a mutually successful journey.
