You may have seen one of the recent articles circulating about us, so Chris and I thought we should take a moment to give you all an update on the State of Affairs at Jackie’s Java to make sure no misinformation is shared.
First off, I want to assure you that Jackie’s Java is here to stay!
Our parent company (Purple Peony Inc.) filed for Chapter 11, Subchapter 5 bankruptcy protection on October 26th. This was a necessary step to restructure some debt the company took on during our purchase of Jackie’s Java. In short, the pandemic hit us (like many small businesses) hard - and recovery has been slower than we anticipated.
This particular type of bankruptcy allows us to operate as normal, with zero changes to our staff, our products, or our business as a whole. We are very grateful for this process, and are confident that this action will ensure Jackie’s Java will continue to be around for many years to come.
On a personal note, I want to thank each and every one of you for your continued support of our roastery. We absolutely would not be here today if it wasn’t for you and we are truly grateful for every bag of coffee you buy from us. We love what we do, and feel very fortunate that we get to continue to roast the best coffees in Northern Colorado.
Please feel free to reach out with any questions you may have. If you’d like to help ensure our future, please consider our coffees when you do your holiday shopping-it really means the world to us!
