MALDEN, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Reily Foods today announced the appointment of Jim Kaloyanides as General Manager of wholly-owned subsidiary New England Tea & Coffee Company LLC, the largest independent coffee roaster and purveyor of coffee in New England. Following in the footsteps of his father, grandfather and great grandfather, Mr. Kaloyanides is the fourth generation family member to lead the company during its nearly 100-year history.
Mr. Kaloyanides is charged with leading the Malden, MA-based company and building on the company’s numerous growth opportunities.

New England Coffee roasts both branded and private-labeled coffees for more than 5,000 customers including donut and coffee shops, restaurants and convenience stores.
