About Big Train
Who is Big Train?
The name Big Train was chosen by the founding partners in 1991 because it stood for a thriving enterprise that symbolizes strength and constant motion. Big Train® has evolved to become a global foodservice powerhouse brand. The foodservice market leader in Blended Ice Coffee and Chai beverage mixes, Big Train’s product portfolio now includes over 200 diverse products, the most complete in the industry. Big Train keeps moving forward, always in search of the next revolutionary drink that’s as delicious to drink as it is easy to prepare.
For over 20 years, Big Train has established itself as a worldwide leader in specialty beverage mix products for the foodservice industry and home baristas everywhere while building a top to bottom commitment to excellent customer service. With our headquarters, manufacturing and distribution center in Lake Forest, California, we are proud of our Made in the USA heritage. Big Train exports its products to over 55 countries including Mexico, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Saudi Arabia, Denmark, Chile, South Korea, Hong Kong, Australia and many others.
In February, 2013, Kerry announced the acquisition of Big Train. Born out of Kerry’s desire to enhance the customer experience, Big Train expands Kerry’s beverage product solutions, manufacturing expertise, and global reach. For more information about Kerry, go here.

Professional is our standard of quality. We’ve made it our business to help foodservice operators, and now home baristas, everywhere succeed by giving them a recipe for success: easy to make products that taste great, every time.

For over 20 years we have been the professional’s choice. Now consumers ask for Big Train by name and most of our products are now available to consumers and home baristas everywhere. Our success is due in part to a diverse, high quality product line that includes frappes, hot cocoas, soft serve products, real fruit smoothies, baked goods, cocktail mixes, and protein drinks. Because of a combination of win-win partnerships with the best distributors in the industry, thousands of devoted customers, tenured dedicated and friendly staff, and a company-wide commitment to quality, Big Train has paved the way to where we are today.
