La Colombe

Powered by dynamic growth in sales of its innovative Draft Latte products, La Colombe has been a standout performer within the surging RTD coffee category. Led by charismatic co-founder and CEO Todd Carmichael, the Philadelphia-based premium coffee company embarked upon a highly ambitious distribution strategy in 2017, adding tens of thousands of new points of sale, including national placement at Wegmans, Whole Foods, Target and Trader Joe’s. The retail expansion synched with the opening of a new 55,000 sq. ft. production facility in Western Michigan, a plant capable of producing 250 million cans annually. Meanwhile, La Colombe’s innovation pipeline yielded several impressive new Draft Latte flavors, including outstanding seasonal varieties Pumpkin Spice Latte and Peppermint Mocha.
