Do You Have What It Takes To Be A PLANTERS® Brand Peanutter?


Austin, Minn.

Recent college graduates are welcome to apply for a once-in-a-lifetime job opportunity driving MR. PEANUT® across the country in the iconic NUTMOBILE™ vehicle

The past couple years sure have been nuts, and as we continue to come out of our shells, many people are looking for new, exciting opportunities to kick-start their new year. For those wanting a crack at their next nutty adventure, the maker of the PLANTERS® brand has the perfect gig.

The maker of the PLANTERS® brand is looking for three Peanutters to chauffer MR. PEANUT® from coast to coast in the iconic NUTMOBILE™ vehicle, a 26-foot-long peanut on wheels, while shellebrating the communities they visit at local events.

“Since bringing the PLANTERS® brand into the Hormel Foods family, we’ve been looking forward to welcoming a new class of Peanutters to represent the PLANTERS® brand across the country,” said Jaynee Dykes, associate marketing director for the PLANTERS® brand. “This is Hormel Foods’ first class of Peanutters and we are excited to keep this beloved tradition alive and continue to add substance to our fans’ lives as we visit them in their hometowns.”

The Peanutter position is a full-time, paid, one-year job opportunity from June 2022 through June 2023. The nuts and bolts of the job include:

  • Representing the PLANTERS® brand in media interviews and appearances with local radio, television and digital publications
  • Delighting fans across the country at local community events
  • Engaging in consumer interactions and ensuring all attendees and onlookers have a nutty time and a positive brand experience with the NUTMOBILE™ vehicle and MR. PEANUT®
  • Working alongside people who perform little acts of substance for their communities at volunteer projects

For those who would go nuts to be a part of the newest class of Peanutters, here’s what it takes to apply:

  • Recent college graduate with a bachelor’s degree, preferably in sales and marketing, with preferred experience in communications, advertising, public relations or a related field
  • Desire to travel, an appetite for adventure and proficiency in nut puns is a must
