Durham-Ellis Pecan Company, which started 81 years ago in Comanche, made the list of seven finalists in this year’s Texas Association of Business’ Small Business of the Year 2008-2009.
Durham Pecan Co. was started in 1928 by W.M. Durham, Sr. It has been said that his mission for the company was to provide the freshest and highest quality pecans. And wanting to help people earn some money during this economic stressful time in 1928, he set up long tables for workers to shell pecans by hand. They were paid after the meat of the pecans they had shelled were weighed.
In 1996, Odie Dollins purchased Durham Pecan Company.
Today, the modern, automated company processes and distributes nuts to commercial operations worldwide, including Luby’s, Mrs. Baird’s and Blue Bell.
In 1998, Durham and his partner Paul Leonard purchased Ellis Pecan Co. of Ft. Worth which marketed pecans to grocers and supermarkets, as well as establishing retail outlets in Comanche, Fort Worth and Goldthwaite.
