Ronnoco Coffee, a US-based portfolio company of Huron Capital Partners, has purchased Henderson Coffee of Muskogee, Oklahoma for an undisclosed amount, to accelerate growth in the coffee business.

Founded in 1923, Henderson manufactures and distributes coffee, tea and related products to restaurants, casinos and convenience stores in Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri and Kansas.

Post acquisition, Henderson Coffee owners Mark Plaster and Mark Truitt, will continue to work with Ronnoco and sell the Henderson brand of coffee.

Ronnoco Coffee CEO Scott Meader said that Henderson Coffee has a long, rich tradition of providing quality products and service to customers and coffee lovers throughout Oklahoma.

Henderson marks the second add-on investment by Huron into the Ronnoco platform, after Ronnoco acquired International Blends earlier in 2013.

Huron Capital Partners official John Higgins said with this second add-on acquisition in 2013, Ronnoco continues to grow its geographic reach and expand its product lines.

"We are excited about working with the Ronnoco team to pursue additional growth initiatives," Higgins added.

In July 2012, Huron first invested in Ronnoco Coffee, which now roasts, blends, grinds, packages, and distributes premium-quality coffee and teas under four brands including Ronnoco, Seattle Roast, Wild Horse Creek and Camellia.

Ronnoco offers other beverages such as cappuccino, hot chocolate, smoothies and coffee-related products such as flavoring syrups and condiments, which are supplied directly to its convenience stores, foodservice and office customers through third-party distributors at 16 Midwestern state cities such as St Louis, Kansas City, Chicago, Indianapolis, Omaha, Des Moines and Minneapolis.
