European coffee chain and retailer Tchibo has increased its presence in Chicago, Illinois, through a new partnership with American grocery and pharmacy chain Jewel-Osco.
With this new partnership, Tchibo coffee will be sold at more than 188 Jewel-Osco stores across Chicago, increasing the brand’s total distribution points to more than 2700 locations across mid-west America.
Tchibo first launched in the United States in late 2020 and is distributed by Rainmaker Food Solutions.
Chris Mattina, CEO Rainmaker Food Solutions says, “We’re excited to introduce Tchibo to Jewel customers across Chicagoland, a region renowned for its booming coffee culture.
“As a record number of consumers continue to drink coffee at home, it’s essential to keep retailers replenished with a vibrant, premium brewing option for its coffee aficionados. We anticipate Chicago coffee lovers will enjoy a fresh experience with Tchibo.”
According to Tchibo, the brand’s coffee blends offer a more sustainable and fresh coffee experience.
Bud Lowell, Senior Vice President of CA Carlin and Jewel-Osco Lead says, “As the Tchibo coffee footprint continues to expand in the Midwest, this iconic European coffee brand now has a new home at Jewel-Osco.
“Jewel is committed to bringing cutting edge brands to its customers. We’re especially proud to offer Jewel shoppers a premium coffee experience from Tchibo, whose values in freshness, fair sourcing, and sustainability, are what consumers are seeking today.”
Through Jewel-Osco, American customers can buy the brand’s whole or ground beans in four varieties that have been created specifically for the US market. These include the Morning Blend, Colombia Origin, Classic Blend, and Röstmeister.
Founded in Germany in 1949, Tchibo’s product range expands from cafés and coffee to clothing, furniture, electronics, and more. The brand says its concepts are grounded in the ethos of ‘Röst Frisch’, redefining what it means to be fresh.
