"As a premier provider of workplace coffee and beverage solutions for almost 30 years, we are seeking to strategically expand our loyal customer base and further strengthen our business in the important metro New York market," said Corporate Coffee president and chief executive David Henchel.
Classic Coffee Systems was cofounded by John Malizio and Charles Chiarello in 1980 and is based in Valley Stream, NY, on Long Island, not far from Corporate Coffee's headquarters here.
Henchel praised Classic as a well-respected office coffee provider, admired by customers, employees and the industry for its commitment to the coffee-break experience with a personal touch.
He added that he regards Classic's Malizio and Chiarello as two of the most experienced operators in the OCS business. He said that tapping into their knowledge and welcoming many of their talented employees to his team will help position Corporate Coffee Systems for future internal and external growth.
