Rose Park Roasters GAF Loan

NDC GAF Assists a Long Beach, California Coffee Roasting Business Expand Operations.

Release Date: 2018-10-01

Rose Park Roasters, LLC was formed by Nathan Tourtellotte and Andrew Phillips in 2008 as a wholesale artisanal coffee roasting business. After years of hard work perfecting their light-roast technique, they purchased a struggling coffee shop on 4th Street in Long Beach, CA and rebranded it as the Rose Park Roasters location. In the first week of operations, they saw a six-fold increase in sales from the prior coffee shop’s sales. Growth of their wholesale business since opening the retail storefront has increased significantly, and by 2017, they were ready to expand.
Using their own capital, they began construction on a coffee roasting facility in late 2017, which consolidates their production into a single location, with enough space to host public coffee events, such as coffee brewing classes, as well as capacity to offer sub-leases to other micro coffee roasters in the Long Beach. The facility opened for operations in April 2018.
