Kicking Horse Coffee wants to grow far beyond B.C.
Story by Kyle Bakx, CBC News
“The reaction was instant in the community of Invermere, in southeast B.C., when the news broke that Kicking Horse Coffee was sold to Italy’s Lavazza.
Everywhere co-founder Elana Rosenfeld went around town people greeted her with ‘Buongiorno!’
Instead of concern over a European conglomerate taking over the business and new owners who might close down the local operations, residents were thrilled about their small town success story.
Kicking Horse grew from roasting beans in a garage to shipping orders to thousands of stores across Canada and the U.S. It’s sold in grocery stores, in cafés and online.”
