TR Toppers™, a processor and packager of branded and non-branded candies, baked goods, and other toppings, was founded in 1991. Previously, the Rode brothers owned and operated yogurt shops where they identified the concept of enhancing frozen yogurt desserts by adding chopped candy toppings, the first being Reeses™ Peanut Butter Cups.
Popularity of the concept developed into the formation of TR Toppers, Inc.™ as the brothers began to chop, package and sell the candy pieces in convenient 10lb. cases. Their first customer, Southwest Traders in Temecula, California, experienced huge success. Soon thereafter, International Dairy Queen™ added chopped Reeses™ to the Blizzard™ program and Baskin-Robbins™ to ice cream. With the vast success of this one product, came the initiative to offer other brand name chopped candy toppings, including M and Ms™, Snickers™, Butterfinger™, and Heath™.
In 1994, TR Toppers™ moved from Odgen, Utah to Pueblo, Colorado, to be more centrally located, offering freight and shipping efficiencies. In 1997, a state-of-the-art plant was built, which continues to expand to accommodate rapid growth.
With a large network of 400-500 distributors nationwide, quick service restaurant chains of all sizes including Dairy Queen™, McDonalds™, Arbys™, and TCBY™ purchase TR Toppers™ products. Other channels serviced include ice cream companies, like Dreyers™/Edys™ and Baskin-Robbins™, as well as baked-goods manufacturers.
Much of the success of TR Toppers™ is attributed to excellent customer service, including on-time delivery and shipping capability. TR Toppers™ is continually enhancing their product line, and soon will be adding their expertise to finished product application through the introduction of a frozen topping dispenser, enhancing the quality of the entire dessert (check back for more information).
