About Us. Female barista handing a drink to a customer.

OUR PURPOSE

Our founders, John and Kim Puckett, opened the doors of the very first Caribou Coffee® with a vision to build personal connection into the coffeehouse experience. Nearly 30 years later, Caribou Coffee’s purpose of creating day making experiences that spark a chain reaction of good for our team, guests and community fuels our growth.

Caribou Coffee products are also available in all 50 states across grocery stores, mass retailers, club stores, foodservice providers, hotel, entertainment venues and online.
