Beverage maker Nestle Professional closing Tampa office, eliminating 77 jobs

TAMPA — Nestle Professional Vitality is closing its downtown Tampa office by the spring, laying off 77 workers, the food and beverage maker disclosed in a WARN layoff notice filed with the state this week.

Nestle Professional, which includes such brands as Nestea and Coffee-Mate, bought Tampa-based Vitality Foodservice seven years ago, adding a range of juices, teas, coffees and smoothies into its portfolio.

The closing of the office inside the Park Tower skyscraper at 400 N Tampa St. is expected to be permanent and includes numerous management-level employees, according to a letter accompanying the layoff notice. The company said all the job cuts will occur by May 19.
