Pod Pack International, a manufacturer of single-serve coffee and tea and a portfolio company of LongueVue Capital, has combined with Joe’s Garage Coffee, a Seattle-based coffee sourcing, roasting, research and development and packaging services company.

Joe’s Garage offers services such as roast-to-order, co-manufacturing, toll-roasting, mixing, blending and new product development, and manufactures its products in several different formats including cups, pods, capsules, portion packs, filter packs and bag services. With this merger, the combined Pod Pack and Joe’s Garage looks to expand its product and service capabilities, market presence, manufacturing capacity and geographic footprint.

“Pod Pack has long admired Joe’s Garage as a clear leader in private label and co-packaging for the specialty coffee space,” says Marion Gray, CEO of Pod Pack. “Combined with Pod Pack’s 25+ year track record of innovation, service, and manufacturing excellence, this partnership further enhances our value proposition and capabilities for our valued customer base. We look forward to embarking upon this exciting next chapter of growth.”

“Joe’s Garage operates with an unwavering commitment to outstanding customer service and superior product quality,” adds Greg Gould, founder of Joe’s Garage. “These resolute principles are wholly embraced by Pod Pack, and we are thrilled to join together to offer our customers an expanded range of product and service offerings with unique capabilities and increased capacities in order to accelerate their continued success.”

Jones Walker LLP and Karr Tuttle Campbell served as legal counsel for Pod Pack and Joe’s Garage, respectively.
