Cash-Wa started out in 1934 delivering candy to local neighborhood grocery stores in Kearney, Nebraska. Harvey Henning started peddling for Cash-wa Candy Company when he was 17 years old. Peddling his bicycle around town to take and deliver orders. After his service in WWII, Harvey became a full time employee of Cash-Wa and in 1957 he purchased the company.
Since that time the company has remained privately owned by the Henning family with 2nd and 3rd generation family members playing significant roles in Cash-Wa's continued success. The company has grown to include 3 complete distribution centers and several sales offices with representatives serving all or part of 9 Great Plains States.
We still embrace Harvey's original conviction that if we just remember that we are here to serve our customers we will succeed.
Our advantage IS our people. Lots of the folks on the Great Plains have grown up close to the earth. As children we watched the crops come and go with the seasons, saw the birth and death of farm animals and generally got life's lessons early, teaching us what it takes to get things done.
Those are the people who work at Cash-Wa. With over 500 employees it is no longer possible to hold intimate chats that help bond an employee to the company vision . So with every hire we endeavor to bring aboard an associate who already embraces the essential service ethic. And when we find that employee, we do our best to take care of them. Our customer is the beneficiary of this practice.
Old fashioned service, innovative technologies, and up to date business building strategies help our more than 3,500 customer partners succeed each and every week. Our customer base includes retail discounters, grocery stores, fast food restauraunts, convenience stores, health care facilities, schools, and white tablecloth restaurants.

Our fill rate percentage on multi-unit accounts is 99.93%. More importantly, we pride ourselves in the long-standing partnerships that have earned us the distinction of being the distributor of choice for industry leading foodservice operations in Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Iowa, Minnesota, North & South Dakota, Wyoming and Colorado.
