Business Profiles

Anyone who lives within a few miles of S&D Coffee knows them by the tantalizing, mouth-watering aroma that wafts out of their nearly 400,000 square foot facility. Restaurants, convenience stores, offices and lodging facilities throughout the rest of the country know them as one of the largest food service suppliers of coffee and tea.

S&D has not always been the size it is now. Started in 1927 by Roy Davis Jr.'s father, S&D originally roasted coffee for small grocery stores in the immediate area. Now run by the third generation of Davis', Alan and Rhyne, S&D is still a family owned, privately held company. Ron Hinson, a non-Davis family member, is S&D Coffee & Tea's Chairman of the Board as well as President and CEO. Ron started with S&D over 35 years ago as a Route Sales Representative.

"Without the support of the City of Concord staff and the members of City Council, Mayor Scott Padgett, S&D would not have been able to enjoy the amazing growth we have had," Ron Hinson proclaims to any and all. S&D employs over 400 people locally and over 800 nationwide to help service and support their 60,000+ customers. They depend heavily on local people to manage and run their facility. As Ron also states, "We will keep our headquarters here in Concord and continue to support this area."
