  • French Truck Coffee is expanding business to Memphis this fall.

Four years after launching the small-batch coffee roasting company French Truck Coffee (1200 Magazine St., 504-298-1115) Geoffrey Meeker is expanding his business to Memphis. Meeker has partnered with Tennessee-based micro-roasting company Relevant Roasters, which will rebrand as French Truck Coffee as part of the deal this September. 

“I love waking up to great coffee and I love sharing great coffee with other people even more,” Meeker said in a prepared statement. “I am excited to take French Truck out of New Orleans, and share our mission to serve the best small-batch, fresh roasted coffee possible.” 
Meeker started French Truck in 2012, first roasting the beans out of his laundry room before moving to a roasting facility on Magazine Street. Earlier this year, he opened French Truck Café on Dryades Street, where an extended food and drink menu is served. 

A second location for the new French Truck Coffee — which will also feature a café and a roaster on site - will open in Memphis’ Crosstown Concourse development in Spring 2017.
