Earlier this year, Enderly Coffee found itself on the shelves at 37 local Walmart stores from Boone, North Carolina, to Cheraw, South Carolina. 

Owner Tony Santoro said thanks to a campaign by Walmart to put 85 local coffee roasters on its aisles in regions across the country, bags of Enderly Coffee Company’s products can now be found on store shelves.

“For a small, local business like ours, the opportunity to A. put it on their shelves but B. to grow with the company, it’s a pretty big deal,” Santoro said.

Santoro said he and his wife started Enderly Coffee Company in 2012. They were teachers in Charlotte at the time and roasting coffee was Santoro’s hobby in his backyard.

He decided to take a leap of faith to pursue his hobby, and he and his wife have been building the coffee brand in the Queen City over the last decade.

The company opened its café on Tuckaseegee Road in the Enderly Park neighborhood, where the business’ name comes from, in 2018.
