Join us November 16, 2017 for a special Heritage Happy Hour at the Texas Coffee Company! This family run company began in Beaumont in 1921 when Charles J. Fertitta, Sr. recognized the demand for a good quality coffee. In 1926, Mr. Fertitta recapitalized the company by forming a partnership with R. C. Maceo and Joseph S. Serio. In 1968, Texas Coffee Company became the first coffee company in the United States to begin packaging coffee in vacuum-packed foil bags ~ now the industry standard. Come learn how an investment of $1800 and a Ford Model-T truck were the beginnings of this beloved Beaumont manufacturer and distributor of Seaport Coffee, Texas Coffee, and TexJoy Spices.
Heritage Happy Hour is an on-going partnership between the Beaumont Heritage Society and Giglio Distributing Co. typically held every other month, with each event highlighting an historical exhibit, time, or landmark, as well as a craft beer or brewery. We believe that by promoting and sharing our local history and its historical significance in a fun and social way, we can also share and promote the efforts to preserve Beaumont’s historical landscape.
