Nicholas & Company was founded in 1939 by Nicholas William Mouskondis and is now under the stewardship of its third generation with Peter Mouskondis at the helm. The family’s vision and commitment incorporate integrity, honesty, and opportunity for all associates and team members, while standing as the guidepost in moving the business forward. Sustainability in the company’s facility, operations, and products is a key factor to its continued success and validates its promise to be a good corporate citizen.
Nicholas & Company has partnered with the SWCA Environmental Performance Group to perform a carbon footprint analysis of its operations. The company is now developing a plan to reduce its impact on the environment by implementing operational changes to minimize that footprint. Nicholas & Company employs more than 500 team members and services more than 3,500 customers in a six-state area, and the company takes its impact on the communities and families it touches seriously.
In the fall of 2008, Nicholas & Company’s facility was expanded and upgraded to maximize efficiencies, utilizing sustainable practices and products. The company provides customers with many options for local, sustainable, and green products in all of the categories it stocks. Nicholas & Company is also committed to sustainable operations in its warehouse, office, and with its delivery fleet.
Nicholas & Company is proud of what it has accomplished toward being a sustainable business and a responsible member of the Utah economy, where the company is headquartered. The company is excited about its continued development in these areas and knows that by definition, sustainability is an ongoing, ever-changing process.
