Manatee Chamber of Commerce
Owners, Todd and Susan Kopstad, got involved in the coffee industry 38 years ago in Chicago by chance... which turned into a passion! After successfully opening over 1000 accounts together in Chicago as Arlington Coffee they knew they found a formula for success. Together they went national and owned and operated offices in Milwaukee, Minneapolis, Columbus, Atlanta, New Orleans, Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Austin, Las Vegas, New York, and Beverly Hills. After having their daughter, Katy Kopstad, they realized bigger wasn't better and the quiet beach life of Florida was calling their name. They moved to Sarasota in 1996 and opened Sea Breeze Coffee and Tea.
Sea Breeze has been successful for 26 years locally based on our outstanding customer service, quality products and dedication to the community. Sea Breeze won the coveted Small Business of the Year Award by the Chamber of Commerce and continues to give back any way we can. This couldn't be done without business from our customers so thank you all for your continued support!
Todd, Susan and Katy enjoy dining out at local restaurant customers, watching football, traveling and having fun on our beautiful Florida beaches!
