Buddy Brew Coffee now has distribution with Sprouts. The Tampa roaster has struck an agreement with Phoenix-based natural foods grocery chain Sprouts Farmers Market. Effective immediately, Sprouts will distribute Buddy Brew’s BOLT cold brew coffee, in original and nitro, in all 370 Sprouts stores in 23 states.
The agreement with Sprouts represents BOLT’s largest geographic footprint to date. BOLT will now be in many midwest and western states for the very first time, including 132 Sprouts stores in California, 44 stores in Arizona and 32 stores in Colorado — as well as in 35 stores in Buddy Brew’s home state of Florida.
The Sprouts partnership builds on a recent agreement with Jacksonville, Fla.,–based Southeastern Grocer Inc.
(SEG) to carry BOLT in the natural section at 110 Winn-Dixie
stores in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana and Mississippi. BOLT is also available for purchase at all Whole Foods Market
stores in Florida.
Buddy Brew’s “Brew Good, Do Good” mission represents the company’s people-first focus. All coffees are sourced ethically and sustainably through relationships with small-lot farmers and women-owned co-ops, paying highly equitable prices so farmers can thrive. All coffees are among the top 2 percent in quality in the world.
Buddy Brew contributes to multiple local and global causes, including providing resources to those affected by human trafficking; bringing hope and healing to children and youths
in the foster care system; and planting trees to support reforestation in coffee-growing regions affected by climate change.
