Eastham Chamber of Commerce honors John Simonian of Beanstock Coffee Roasters with the 2017 SCORE of Cape Cod Build a Better Mousetrap Award
John Simonian is President and head of day-to-day operations at Beanstock Coffee Roasters based in Eastham. Founded by friends in 1996, Beanstock has grown from a tiny retail location with a one pound roaster in the heart of Wellfleet to a specialty coffee macro-roaster (over 100,000 lbs./year) by building a prominent, wholesale and internet retailer business with a focus on customers that share their devotion to quality as well as a special affinity for the Cape and Islands. The future continues to look bright as the company is doubling its production space in May of 2017, has recently opened new accounts in Los Angeles and Providence and is planning on opening its first signature café before the end of the calendar year.
John grew up in Syracuse, NY but spent many childhood summers at the family house on Cape Cod. His varied career path includes freelance copywriting for Billboard Magazine, working for wine importer Frederick Wildman in Manhattan, several restaurant positions and a brief stint as an options trader on the Pacific Exchange. John has a B.S. from the University of Hartford.
