105 years later and Stewarts Coffee remains family owned through four generations! Since the beginning we have had the pleasure of naming Chicago our home. It all started with the man himself, our founding Great Grandfather, William A. Stewart. To provide the best role model for his staff members, our great grandfather personally portrayed the impeccable attitude and allegiance he wanted his employees to emit to future clients and customers. Donald R. Stewart I, the first in our second generation, made it his life goal to carry on his fathers legacy through his years guiding Stewarts Coffee
The third generation belonged to his sons William A Stewart, Donald R Stewart II, and last but not least, Robert C. Stewart. Bill Stewart had the same vision as his father; to share the great hidden treasures of coffee with the world. Don took Stewarts Coffee down a different avenue, implementing flavored coffee and flavored syrups. Stewarts started venturing into large scale specialty coffee blends. When Bob Stewart and Dawn Stewart took the reigns after the passing of Don, they wanted to move the business to a higher level of excellence. Continuously William and Donald R. Stewart I Donald R. Stewart II reminding himself of his bloodline and the message his father used to represent.
Our fourth generation belongs to Dawn Stewart, daughter of Bill Stewart. Dawn has taken a social approach to reach out to newer generation customers. She expresses the importance of displaying her great grandfathers morals of spreading the feeling of joy through amazing coffee.
In 2014, the Stewarts Family promoted Joseph Cappuccitti to run business operations as CEO. Joe has been employed with Stewarts Coffee for the past 32 years as their in house accountant and financial adviser. With the help of COO Rose Pawlowicz, Joe was able to successfully move Stewarts Coffee to the west suburbs of Chicago. His focus is to build skills in marketing, productivity, and efficiency throughout all areas of our business.
