YUM! Mary’s Gone Crackers expanding manufacturing and R&D headquarters, hiring 200 in Reno
RENO, Nev. — The Economic Development Authority of Western Nevada (EDAWN) announced today that Mary’s Gone Crackers®, a manufacturer of organic and gluten-free healthy snacks will be opening a manufacturing and R&D facility in Reno.
The company headquarters will also be relocated to this site with plans to be operational by this fall.
Mary’s Gone Crackers intends to hire over 200 employees by the end of 2017. They were awarded business incentives in March 2016.
Mary’s Gone Crackers was founded in 2004 and today is the #1 selling organic and gluten free cracker brand in the United States with exports to Canada, Mexico, UK, EU and Australia. Their products are available nationally at natural, specialty and mainstream grocery and club stores. The company was founded and inspired by a shortage of nutritious, gluten free options that taste good. They have become popular not only with those affected by celiac disease but also with consumers eager for delicious snacks that they can feel good about eating. The company received the Sofi Gold award for the most outstanding cracker at the New York Fancy Food Show.
“Today, nearly 30% of adults in this country are actively trying to reduce or eliminate gluten from their diets. This is not a fad. It’s a $15 billion movement,” said Mary Waldner, founder and chairman of Mary’s Gone Crackers. “We bake organic, gluten free, vegan crackers, cookies and pretzels with whole grains, flours and seeds that are full-flavored, crave-able and deeply satisfying.”
