Smart Care Equipment Solutions is expanding its specialty coffee and beverage equipment service capabilities with the acquisition of Minneapolis-based Espresso Partners.

Founded in 2004, the family-owned coffee equipment service company offers emergency repair and planned maintenance services for traditional drip coffee and espresso equipment, along with grinders and water filtration. The company works with customers across restaurant, convenience store, corporate dining and other foodservice end markets.

Smart Care says the acquisition expands its coffee equipment presence in the Midwest and complements existing capabilities in the Pacific and Atlantic regions, creating coast-to-coast coverage.

“Espresso Partners is a fantastic acquisition and fits perfectly within our high‐growth specialty equipment segment,” says Gyner Ozgul, Smart Care president and COO, in a press release. “For nearly 20 years, Espresso Partners has exceeded customer expectations and demonstrated exceptional growth across the Midwest and on both coasts. We look forward to accelerating that growth and enabling the Espresso Partners team to double down on superior customer service.”

The acquisition marks Smart Care’s 20th since 2017 and fifth under Wind Point ownership. Last month, Smart Care added Dutton Food Equipment Repair to its portfolio.
