Investment manager Blackstone has invested in 7 Brew Coffee, an American drive-thru beverage company, through its Blackstone Growth and affiliated funds.

The undisclosed amount invested aims to fuel 7 Brew’s expansion across the US, working alongside its top-tier franchise partners.

Since its inception in 2017 with the first outlet in Rogers, Arkansas, 7 Brew Coffee has been offering custom drinks, offering a selection of more than 20,000 combinations.

7 Brew CEO John Davidson stated: “We are on a strong growth trajectory thanks to our outstanding team, the Brew Crew, and are so excited to have found in Blackstone a true partner who understands our culture and whose global reach and incredible resources will enable us to reach this next stage of growth.

“Blackstone brings everything we are looking for to help serve our customers and support our franchisees – industry and market knowledge, franchisee relationships, data science, operations and real estate expertise.”

Blackstone officials Todd Hirsch and Katie Storer said: “7 Brew’s impressive growth to date is a testament to its strong team and franchisee partnerships. We are excited to partner with this business that is redefining the out-of-home coffee experience, by marrying a personal, human-centric customer service experience with premium products and exceptional efficiency.”
