Throwback Thursday: Platt-Porter’s Coffee

We love our coffee here at L&P. Apparently, Cornelius Platt did too.

Here’s an ad from his venture into wholesale groceries with George Porter (this was in addition to his partnership with J.P. Leggett). Legend has it that in 1926, Platt and Porter roasted and ground 200,000 pounds of green coffee beans that yielded 165,000 pounds of coffee.

This throwback for your Thursday proves it: Even in 1948 we had a lot of winners on our team!

Fast forward to today, and our Exhibit Solutions team is growing and busier than ever!
