Coblentz Distributing Inc. (dba Walnut Creek Foods) has finalized the purchase of Yoder’s Fine Foods in Gambier, Ohio. All current employees are being welcomed into the Walnut Creek family, and production will remain at the current facility.
In 1975, Levi and Wilma Yoder started their business as a custom cider pressing operation. Yoder’s Fine Foods is now a significant producer of apple butter, along with a unique line of homestyle jams and jellies. The business was most recently owned and operated by their sons Sheldon and Steve Yoder, who will both continue to run the day-to-day operations of the facility in Gambier, Ohio.
Founded in 1977, Walnut Creek Foods is a family-owned food manufacturer and distributor. With a vision of Making Life Better, Walnut Creek continues to grow with a focus on serving rural communities with quality foods that promote good stewardship and loyalty. This acquisition also further solidifies their commitment to manufacturing and distributing products popular among residents of Holmes County and the surrounding areas.
