Kansas-based PT’s Coffee Roasting Co. assumed control of Bird Rock Coffee Roasters of San Diego on Jan. 31 with plans to increase Bird Rock’s retail and wholesale brand.
PT’s founder and c.e.o. Jeff Taylor will move to San Diego and lead the process, according to a company statement. Bird Rock founder Chuck Patton will become lead coffee buyer for both companies.
“[The move] will give us the opportunity to expand the Bird Rock brand beyond San Diego and continue developing our direct trade programs and partner farms,” Taylor said in the statement. “That’s what makes this the perfect fit. PT’s was one of the pioneers of the direct trade model of purchasing and Bird Rock successfully built itself around the same principals.”
