Benjamin Gallagher went into partnership with his friend, Omaha capitalist William A. Paxton in 1879. By the turn of the century, wholesaler Paxton and Gallagher was renowned throughout the West for its line of staple and fancy groceries. In its four-story building in Omaha, Paxton and Gallagher manufactured baking powder and extracts, ground spices, packaged teas from their own Japanese warehouses, and blended and roasted coffees from around the world.
Paxton and Gallagher first applied the name "Butter-Nut" to one of its coffee blends in 1913. When Gilbert and Clark Swanson purchased the firm in 1958, they renamed the business the Butter-Nut Foods Company.
