Ryan and Kristin Wilson moved to Bozeman in 2004 from Seattle, with a vision for making coffee simple and accessible, while providing a friendly and unique experience in a modern space. They opened Rockford in December 2004 and soon developed a loyal following of coffee lovers. In 2009, the Wilsons expanded their business with coffee roasting and coffee wholesale. This gave them an opportunity to develop a quality artisan craft coffee and unique blends for their customers. In 2011, Rockford opened a second location on the corner of Rouse and Main Street, offering boutique retail coffee and homemade baked goods. Parents of four young children, Ryan and Kristin have a love and dedication for the Bozeman community, with a passion for giving back. Since the beginning they have been committed to supporting a number of local non-profits and the local cycling community, as a long-time sponsor of the Team Rockford cycling group.
