Honest Coffee Roasters is rapidly expanding its wholesale business, most recently through a partnership with the new Five Daughters Bakery in Ponce City Market, Atlanta.

Both Honest Coffee Roasters and Five Daughters Bakery built their flagship locations in the historic Factory at Franklin in 2015. Honest Founder Brett Henry said that he and Isaac and Stephanie Meeks, husband-and-wife founders of Five Daughters Bakery, have become close friends by sharing experiences from their entrepreneurial journeys.

“At the end of the day, I think Five Daughters and Honest Coffee share the same core purpose: to create high-quality products with expertise, integrity and the ultimate goal of bringing people together in community,” Henry said. “We’re thrilled that Five Daughters is expanding to the international hub of Atlanta, and we couldn’t be happier to come alongside them on that journey.”

Honest’s small-batch, hand-roasted drip coffees and Nitro, the popular nitrogen-infused and bottled cold brew, are now available at Five Daughters in Atlanta. Five Daughters serves Honest at all of their locations, with the exception of the Seaside, Florida mobile storefront, which does not serve coffee beverages at this time.

Honest has also partnered with Scout’s Barbershop — known for offering its customers iced coffee and craft beer — to be the resident coffee provider across its four locations in the greater Nashville area. Brooke Allison, co-founder of Scout’s Barbershop, said that she chose Honest as her business’s wholesale provider because of the company’s excellent product and outstanding customer service.

“We are proud to partner with Honest, not only because of the quality and taste of the coffee, but also because of the added bonus of getting to work with the friendly and accommodating folks who make Honest Coffee what it is,” Allison said. “The service we get from our wholesale representative is beyond our wildest dreams. He’s always responsive, helpful and proactive about our coffee needs. Honest is a family-owned coffee roaster built on principles that we believe in, and that genuine love behind the coffee really shows.”

Honest’s coffee is also served at many Nashville-based restaurants, including Carter’s at Union Station Hotel and Burger Up Cool Springs, and retail bags are sold through vendors like White’s Mercantile, Herban Market, Whole Foods (Hillsboro Pike and West McEwen) and more.
