Born and raised right here in D-U-U-U-U-V-A-A-A-L, Randy Waters, visionary, founder, owner, and operator of Randeez Nutz Badass Boiled Peanuts, would like to welcome you to Randeez Nutz Express
My roots are in the Mandarin area, where I attended Mandarin Oaks Middle and graduated from Mandarin High school. After graduating high school, I Joined the Air Force and served five (5) years as an Air Traffic Controller. After serving my country, I made the decision to decline a FAA Radar/RAPCON position at Chicago O'hare International Airport to pursue my passion in the culinary field.
I began as the banquet supervisor at a popular local country club. Fast forward to my next opportunity....Trainer at an oyster house in Hattiesburg, MS. After a short time, another local establishment heard about my talent/potential, at which point I was recruited and offered the Kitchen Manager position cross-town Hattiesburg at another popular local establishment. Eventually, I decided to accept the challenge.
When I began in the new role, our establishment averaged roughly $9,000 in food sales on Saturdays. Within three months time, with the help of my amazing staff, new and improved menu, and newly implemented daily specials, we went from $9,000 to $18,000 in sales on Saturdays, and a record breaking $17,000 Sunday. This was affirmation enough that my visions could have a huge impact in the culinary world. I finally made the decision that August of 2015 would be the end of my stint as an employee.
In August of 2015, I moved back to Jacksonville, FL where I utilized my G.I. bill to attend school while also initiating my LLC and all other requirements to launch my entrepreneurial endeavors. In April 2016, I set up an American flag themed tent, wore a matching top-hat, and set up a table with ONE pot of my "Gourmet" (my spin on traditional) flavored peanuts. Within 5 minutes of opening, the wind gusts collapsed and broke my tent. Through it all, I persevered and sat in 90 degree weather with a table, a pot, and a cardboard sign reading "Hot Boiled P-nuts'' on it. Randeez Nutz was born!!!
Fast forward to 2021... I've created over sixty (60) flavor options. My social media commercial has over 100k views. I've advertised on 1010XL Sportsden Radio for 2 years. I have hundreds of reviews and have received all 5 star ratings. No 4, 3, 2 or 1's. In a nutz'shell, I've created demand and maintained supply, even through this thing called Covid-19.
While maintaining the allure of regular specials and incorporating my sauces to sell as marinades, frozen peanuts in bulk, hats, shirts, and other exclusive merchandise that are collectors items, our vision only continues to grow. We never create the same design twice and all merchandise designs change monthly. This model has proven to place a supreme value on obtaining all of the aforementioned! We never duplicate our designs!
Our vision is to apply this same model in a similar demographic and then expand to other geographical locations. As has always been the case, we will continue to focus and thrive on phenomenal customer service while maintaining the superior quality of our products. Think of us as the Baskin Robins of boiled peanuts, with 10 to 11 flavors available daily from 10am 'til 10pm.
