Joyride Coffee Distributors is a market-leading platform for freshly brewed, preservative-free, premium craft beverages. Founded in 2010 by brothers David, Adam, and Noah, the company started as New York City’s first mobile specialty café by serving coffee in the back of a food truck. The company developed an innovative solution for producing and distributing high-quality beverages in a distinctive keg-based delivery platform.
Joyride quickly became a favorite among working professionals and the brothers opted to sell the truck to focus on delivering directly to offices. Since then, the company has been serving thousands of offices and retailers a variety of craft beverages, including cold brew coffee, kombucha, teas, and seltzers. Joyride became the preferred partner of brands such as Starbucks, Peet’s, Stumptown, Intelligentsia, GT’s, and Steven Smith Teamaker.
In 2016, Joyride engaged The Sage Group to explore M&A opportunities. The company decided to partner with Continental Grain Company, a family-owned investment firm. With the strategic guidance of Continental Grand Company, Joyride will continue to broaden its market coverage and develop innovative platform capabilities.
