"CONCORD NC, S&D Coffee Inc. announced a $97 million expansion on Monday that’s expected to create 200 local jobs over five years.
Founded in 1927 in Charlotte, the privately held company started by providing fresh roasted coffee to local and regional grocery stores. It now produces roasted whole bean and ground coffee, specialty coffees, hot chocolate, tea and other products. The company supplies its products to restaurants, hotels, vending machines and offices.
Headquartered in Concord since 1929, the company employs 613 workers at seven locations across the state and is among Concord’s top employers. Due to what it called significant gains in market share, S & D said its sales grew 400 percent over the past 10 years.
“Our business continues to grow and expand at a time when many companies have struggled,” Ron Hinson, S&D Coffee’s chairman, president and CEO said in a news release. “We considered locations in other states for this new round of expansion, but decided to stay in North Carolina and the Concord community.”
