No. 1 family-owned retail coffee brand launches multi-year contract with Houston’s NFL team
BATON ROUGE, La. (Sept. 7, 2022) – Community Coffee, the nation's No. 1 family-owned retail coffee brand, is teaming up with the Houston Texans, becoming the Official Coffee of the team in a multi-year agreement.
“We are not just the Official Coffee of the Texans, but a partner as they give back to the greater Houston community,” said David Belanger, President and CEO of Community Coffee. “Many Houston Texans fans already know us well, but we are excited to get in front to the entire fan base. This partnership will generate awesome opportunities to team up with the Texans to support groups like first responders.”
To kick off the new partnership, Community Coffee teamed up with the Texans for the H-Town Heroes First Responder Appreciation Night on Tuesday, Sept. 6 where families and children who have been impacted by the loss of a parent who served as a first responder enjoyed a night of fun, dinner and bowling. Representatives of Community Coffee joined Texans Chair and CEO Cal McNair, Vice President of the Texans Foundation Hannah McNair, Texans players, Legends, TORO and the Texans Cheerleaders for the event.
The Liberty White Out Game presented by Community Coffee on Sunday, Sept. 11 will honor Houston’s first responders. Prior to the kickoff, 100 first responders and 100 Community Coffee team members and supporters will come together to hold the field-sized American flag during the national anthem. Community Coffee representative and firefighter Jacob Stolzle, alongside representatives from Houston’s police, fire and sheriff’s departments will serve as the game’s Coin Toss Captains.
“We’re proud to bring Community Coffee on board as our partner,” said Houston Texans President Greg Grissom. “As the Official Coffee of the team, we’re looking forward to working together to further support Houston’s first responders and recognize dedicated volunteers through our Community Quarterback Program.”
As part of the multi-year agreement as the Official Coffee of the Texans, Community Coffee is the sponsor the “First Responder Moment of the Game” – the in-game video board feature that recognizes a first responder for their efforts while serving. The company also sponsors the Community Quarterback Program, which recognizes Houston-area volunteers who exemplify leadership, dedication and commitment to improving their communities.
