Pagoma was the private store brand of the Paxton & Gallagher wholesale & hardware Co. of Omaha, Nebraska. The name Pagoma is derived from PAxton-Gallagher-OMAha. Paxton & Gallagher Wholesale Grocery was founded in 1879 by William A. Paxton, and Ben Gallagher in Omaha, Nebraska. A few years later they became one of the largest grocery companies in the West. Business took off when they launched their Butter-Nut line of foods, especially after 1913 when they began selling Butter-Nut brand coffee. The Paxton and Gallagher Wholesale Grocery firm was sold to Gilbert C. Swanson and W. Clarke Swanson and renamed Butternut Foods in 1958.
