GRAND RAPIDS — Ferris Coffee & Nut Co. will consolidate its operations under one roof in Grand Rapids with the purchase of the former American Seating building at 601 7th St. NW
The purchase will allow Ferris, which manufactures and distributes a variety of coffee and nuts, to integrate its manufacturing, distribution and support capabilities into one 165,000-square-foot location, according to a statement. The company currently operates a distribution center in Wyoming — a Grand Rapids suburb — as well as its headquarters and retail store located at 227 Winter Ave. NW.
Ferris will continue to operate its retail location at 227 Winter Ave. NW although “future plans for the existing retail store and coffee shop are undetermined,” according to the statement.
The company declined to disclose the purchase price of the American Seating building.
