Joyride Coffee Distributors (“Joyride” or the “Company”), a market-leading platform for freshly brewed, preservative-free, premium craft beverages, has received an investment from Continental Grain Company.
Joyride was founded in 2010 by developing an innovative solution for producing and distributing high quality, craft beverages in a highly distinctive keg-based delivery platform. Craft on Draft™ has quickly gained a passionate consumer base that appreciates Joyride’s fresh taste and high-quality beverage offering, elevated user experience, premium brand selection, unmatched service, and sustainability. Joyride has also become the preferred partner of brands such as Starbucks, Peet’s, Stumptown, Intelligentsia, GT’s, and Steven Smith Teamaker.
