In 1987, Doug surprised his circle of family and friends by leaving his successful real estate career, purchasing a pecan bagger and starting McClain’s Georgia Pecan. He drove to the oldest pecan sheller in Harlem Georgia, picked up his first batch of nuts to sell and never looked back. Now more than 20 years later, McClain’s Old Florida Gourmet has over 4000 products that include gourmet foods, sweets & snacks, and Florida souviners. We continue to build our reputation for quality and customer service. We choose the freshest products in season and purchase from quality business partner.
In 2011, we gave our Fort Myers retail store and web store a facelift. We continue to add new and exciting gourmet products to our current best tasting and selling lines. We also we added a whole new line of Old Florida Treats by McClain’s with 26 flavors of taffy and 20 different candy treats to satisfy the sweetest of teeth.
Our biggest changes happened in 2012 with a move to our new Sarasota warehouse doubling our size for great products. We also purchased Citra® Products of Florida. This iconic Florida original has been a Norman family tradition for almost 100 years. The founder of many citrus fruit gadgets, the Citra® Sipper was taken to the Chicago World’s Fair in 1933-34. More than 50,000 were sold prior to World War II. McClain’s will distribute the Citra® line keeping the products made in the USA and maintaining the Norman family integrity.
Our #1 selling product – McClain’s Vidalia® Onion Honey Mustard Sauce continues to shine. This product can be found all over Florida and now in many other states. We saw Gold this year winning the Gold Medal in the 2012 National Mustard Competition held at the Mustard Museum in Middleton, Wisconsin.
Our products also sell in many local gourmet fresh markets. We continue to add new stores every week so check out our in-stores section for a location new you. Or contact us at 941-923-6450 for a store near you.
