Specialties are some of our noteworthy goods. You won’t find these at the average hardware store! Even better, all brands are made in or focused on California!
THE PIE COMPANY
The Pie Company is a wholesale bakery in Ripon, California. After graduating high school, John Burgess had the opportunity to take over a friend’s pie-making business. Burgess went from selling the pies at a fruit stand to wholesale distribution. Since 2008, this company has been making “homemade pies just like grandma used to” in various delicious flavors. Downtown Walnut Creek Ace Hardware sells frozen pies to “take and bake.”
Located in Monterey, California, this delicious chocolate company has a sweet history. Scott Lund started Lula’s Chocolates as a tribute to his grandmother and the business she ran for over thirty years, Mrs. Lund’s Personality Chocolates. Lula taught him all about the “art of confectionery,” equipping Scott to continue making chocolate even after she passed. Downtown Walnut Creek Ace Hardware sells a variety of Lula’s Chocolates.
