At only 35 years old, Kevin Pedeaux, is a national entrepreneur in the coffee business.
Kevin attended Archbishop Hannan High School in Meraux. Kevin studied four years abroad and attained an English degree from the University of Holy Cross in Algiers. He and his wife, Ashley, live in New Orleans with their three year old son, Owen and newborn baby Philip.
Kevin’s love for coffee started when he entered a roasting shop in Mississippi, which roast coffee in its original form using a roaster from New Orleans created in 1910.
In 2009 Kevin opened Coast Roast Coffee shop in Ponchatoula in partnership with Nonna Randazzo’s Bakery. He also sold coffee at Covington Farmer’s Market for eight years. He then expanded into St. Roch Market in New Orleans.
Smartly, he continued growing the Coast Roast Coffee brand in a wholesale environment by providing businesses with the best cup of coffee. He targets the needs of businesses and creates specialty blended coffee developed specifically for the smallest coffee shops, as well as some of the biggest brands of coffee in Louisiana. Coast Roast Coffee is sold in over 100 shops across the United States. Kevin's business expanded again when Coast Roast Coffee opened in March of 2018 at The Auction House Market in New Orleans.
Kevin also manages to host a neighborhood talk show that he posts on You Tube and Facebook called Coffee with Kevin. Kevin's show features interesting Louisiana natives and visitors, who are frequent customers of Coast Roast Coffee. While being entertained, viewers of the show get to know regulars at Coast Roast Coffee. This encourages growth in the coffee shop and is a great community builder. Kevin enjoys it because, "It’s the original way of getting news, heading down to where the community gathers and shooting the breeze."
