Wegmans Food Markets, Inc., an 84-store chain based in Gates, New York, is carrying three organic Marley Coffee whole bean offerings in its stores in Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia.
Brookshire Grocery Company, a supermarket chain based in Tyler, Texas, will carry two Marley Coffee blends in both 8oz ground bag and RealCups format in 40 stores in Texas.

Brent Toevs, CEO of Marley Coffee, said, "We believe that our focus on growing distribution with chains like these is essential in attracting new customers who are looking for a quality coffee experience.
