MIAMI -- Bill Bryson has joined Colonial Coffee Roasters as vice president, the Miami-based private-label company has announced. He brings more than 40 years of experience in the convenience and retail store industry.

Previously, he was employed as vice president of Flash Foods, a southeastern chain of more than 170 convenience stores based in Waycross, Ga., and he retired in March 2012 after 30 years of service.

Bryson's extensive experience in developing and capitalizing on market opportunities as well as his dedication to cultivating long-term customer relationships make him a natural fit for the Colonial Coffee team, said the company.
