Cascadia Capital, an investment bank serving middle market clients globally, today announced it acted as the exclusive financial advisor to Cascade Coffee, Inc. (“Cascade”), a premier Pacific Northwest specialty coffee roasting and packaging company, in its acquisition by Westward Partners and management.

Based in Everett, Washington, Cascade provides a trusted outsourced manufacturing option to match the most stringent and specialized customer requirements. Ranging from premium and flavored coffees, to specialty roasts and innovative research and development projects, Cascade can match, develop, and procure any coffee. The Company’s production expertise and unique flexibility underpin its position as a valued supplier to large multinational and emerging growth brands across roast and packaging formats.

“The transaction with Cascade Coffee is representative of an increased appetite for essential businesses with diversified revenue streams,” said Erik Einwalter, Managing Director at Cascadia Capital. “The Company predominantly serves its customer base with retail-oriented packaged coffee options, a segment that has seen increased demand as COVID-19 shifts behavior to at-home consumption.”

The acquisition represents another successful transaction for Cascadia in the food and beverage contract manufacturing sector, with recent transactions including the sale of The Lion Brewery, Carolina Beverage Group, California Natural Products, and Cold Spring Brewing Company. Additionally, Cascade is the 15th facility-based food and beverage client advised by Cascadia in the last 36 months.
