Since 1977 Core Beverage has supplied local coffee houses with premium products to ensure their success.

First started as Swedish Imports in 1977, Core Beverage was the original importer of Monin syrups into the upper mid-west region. This single product category has grown into a full service coffee house supplier for many locally owned businesses. As a family owned business we have the unique ability to provide specific items to meet individual needs. We understand that each business has it’s own personality that makes them special. To meet this need if there is a special product offering that would help you grow or compete please let us know.

No Contracts

We want to EARN your business, not own it. Contracts restrict your ability to shop a free market and hands over a percentage of your business’ success to someone else. You are restricted by their level of service and they can charge you what they like. We provide premium products and service at great pricing to earn your business.

Why pay for services unused?

Core Beverage focuses on your supply chain. We do not offer barista training, equipment repair or other seldom used services that result in increased pricing to your supply chain items. We focus on your Core items in a way that is profitable for you.

Our Mission

As a small local business, we understand how difficult it can be to compete with today’s national chain retailers. Core Beverage uses its buying power to allow independent retailers the ability to order in small quantities, from multiple categories, at large volume pricing. Many times with local delivery service available.

  • Less backroom storage needed

  • Individual item picking

  • Single billing


Core Beverage has allowed me to simplify my supply process and delivers into my stockroom. It’s like having another member on staff for a few hours
