Our history 40 years in the making
Capitol Coffee Systems was founded to do one thing: Offer the highest level of service in the office coffee industry. More than 40 years later, we provide quite a bit more than the best coffee – offices large and small enjoy our filtered water systems, breakroom snacks and a full line of janitorial supplies. So while our product menu has changed, our dedication to service never will.
Your coffee, over 40 years in the making
Buddy Brunson and John Scott founded Capitol Coffee Systems in 1983, after years of experience managing separate coffee franchises in Chapel Hill, NC and Columbia, SC.
As the rest of the coffee service industry continued to offer a limited line of products, Capitol Coffee’s wide selection of beverages and gourmet coffee options set the company apart early on. This initial success led to expansion into breakroom snacks, paper products and cleaning supplies for the entire office.
Capitol Coffee’s comprehensive approach led Brunson and Scott to differentiate the company further, steering away from traditional route-based delivery service and focusing instead on dedicated concierge-style ordering and inventory management.
Today, Capitol works with thousands of offices across the Carolinas and nationally. The company is still owned and operated by the Brunson family, who stay true to the company’s early commitment to a great selection and even better customer service.
