Kum & Go recently partnered with premium coffee brand BLK & Bold to elevate customers’ coffee options. Currently available at 35 Kum & Go locations in Little Rock, Ark.; Omaha, Neb.; and Des Moines, Iowa, BLK & Bold’s featured roasts are all sustainably grown, small-batch roasted and Fair Trade Certified.
“Kum & Go is committed to providing delicious, flavorful and fresh brews,” said Connie Kelehan, Kum & Go senior category manager. “This partnership emphasizes our shared passion for delivering quality coffee experiences and a positive community impact.”
Kum & Go shares 10% of its profits with charitable causes, and BLK & Bold donates 5% of its profits to support at-risk youth locally and nationally.
“We’re excited to partner with Kum & Go as they share our purpose-driven values,” said Rod Johnson, BLK & Bold co-founder and chief marketing officer. “We can’t think of a better partner to expand our availability throughout our shared consumer markets, allowing for additional support for our 5% for our Youth program.”
With specialty-grade roasts like Smoove Operator, a dark Honduras roast, and Rise & GRND, a medium roast from Central America, Kum & Go offers customers brews that complement its fresh perspective on made-to-order food. Available at the same locations as BLK & Bold coffee, the new made-to-order food includes grain bowls, premium meat and vegetables layered on fresh-baked bread, blended smoothies, cold brew frappés, and more.
“We’re proud to offer Kum & Go customers top-shelf roasts, so they can enjoy premium brews on the go,” said Pernell Cezar, BLK & Bold CEO and co-founder. “We’re looking forward to complementing their new menu and delighting consumers with our Fair-Trade specialty brews.”
Established in Hampton, Iowa in 1959, Kum & Go is a family-owned convenience store chain focusing on exceptional service and delivering more than customers expect. For over 60 years, the company has also been dedicated to the communities it serves.
