Bristol Farms is an upscale grocery store chain in California with 14 stores. In Zagat’s most recent Marketplace Survey, Bristol Farms was rated the No. 1 market in overall quality and service. Its stores were described as “a shopper’s beautiful dream with wide aisles, helpful staff and beautiful presentations.”
“I absolutely love both of these chains of stores,” said Rohan Marley, founder and chairman of Marley Coffee. “I love their story and their commitment to excellence. With the addition of Bristol Farms to our distribution network, we feel we’ve really captured the high end retail grocery market in Southern California.”
“Our objective has always been to build the brand and the company off of high volume premium grocery chains like Kowalski’s Markets and Bristol Farms,” added Brent Toevs, CEO of Marley Coffee. “Our strategy of being represented by high end, regionally strong (retailers is) proving to be successful, and expect more announcements like these in the near future.”
