ST. LOUIS — Ronnoco Coffee has acquired the Beverage Solutions Group, a beverage and equipment supplier for the convenience store and foodservice industries.
The coffee and tea manufacturer did not disclose the terms of the transaction.
Beverage Solutions Group sells equipment, creamers, sweeteners, cappuccino and hot chocolate. The Maynardville, Tenn.-based company works with more than 70 distributors in 43 states.
“This purchase supports Ronnoco’s overall strategy of being a single-source supplier for the beverage category, continuing to expand nationally and furthering our acquisition investment within high-growth beverage categories,” said Terry McDaniel, CEO of St. Louis-based Ronnoco.
McDaniel said the company has been providing high-quality equipment, products and customer service in an efficient and environmentally friendly way for the past 20 years.
The deal is Ronnoco’s eighth acquisition in six years, including Black Waters Coffee, U.S. Roasterie Inc., International Blends and Henderson Coffee.
Ronnoco Coffee blends, grinds, packages and distributes coffee brands, including Ronnoco, Seattle Roast, Wild Hose Creek, Henderson and Camellia. It is a company of Detroit-based Huron Capital, which acquired Ronnoco in 2012.
