This start-up is trying to make office coffee cool again
Joyride Coffee Distributors was founded in late 2011 by brothers David, Noah, and Adam Belanich, who started selling coffee and frozen yogurt from a Stumptown Coffee Truck in downtown Manhattan. Within a year, they brewed up a bigger idea for Joyride.
Seeing an opportunity to revitalize typical office coffee pots and packets, which they contend leave much to be desired, the brothers sought to bring high-quality artisan coffees like Blue Bottle, Stumptown and Joe Coffee directly to the break rooms and kitchens of New York offices.
