If you’ve recently had a cup of coffee at a restaurant, convention center, casino, or other institution, there’s a very good chance it was Farmer Brothers coffee.
And, if it was, it came from the company’s state-of-the-art headquarters and production facility in Northlake, the Denton County city to which Farmer Brothers relocated last year from its longtime home in Torrance, California.
The 535,000-square-foot facility sits along Interstate 35W, directly across from Texas Motor Speedway. Its a location executives say fits their needs to build the company that was founded in 1912.
It really checked every box, President and CEO Michael Keown says, of the location that enhanced the company’s ability to import 24 million to 28 million pounds of coffee beans a year mostly from Central and South America roast them, and ship the finished product all across the nation.
That happens thanks to a 125,000-square-foot roasting plant and a 315,000 distribution warehouse.
FARMER BROTHERS IS ENVIRONMENTALLY CONSCIOUS
Inside the headquarters, employees are encouraged to visit the Public Domain for a cup of coffee to drink while they work. The coffee shop-like area features hot- and cold-brew coffees that can be made via multiple types of machines and coffee makers.
Environmentally conscious, Farmer Brothers headquarters facility was constructed with 10 percent recycled materials, and is expected to receive LEED Silver certification.
