About Us


Co-Founder Johnny Packer (Left)

John Clark Packer was born and raised in Madison MS, but now lives in Starkville MS. He was born with a genetic lung disease called Cystic Fibrosis and continues to fight it every day of his life. He now works part time at Batson Children’s Hospital, the same hospital he first became a patient at the day he was born. He helps fundraise and spread awareness about the hospital. Johnny is a diehard Mississippi State sports fan and is also a big fan of Hollywood and Matthew McConaughey and has acted in several shows and movies.  He was on a TV show called Big Fan with Matthew McConaughey. He has also been in several movies directed by John Schneider who was his childhood hero as Bo Duke from the Dukes of Hazzard. They are now close personal friends.  One of Johnny’s missions in life is to raise funds and awareness for those that fight Cystic Fibrosis so he has joined up with his lifelong friend Brandon Walley and formed Johnny Packer Coffee Company.  The two friends also host a podcast about Mississippi State Sports called Johnny’s World which you can find on iTunes or Spotify. 


Co-Founder Brandon Walley (Right)

Brandon and Johnny have been close friends since they met in 5th grade at Madison Ridgeland Academy in Madison MS.  After graduating from Mississippi State, BW went on to Southern College of Optometry in Memphis where he graduated in 2008.  After graduating and opening his own practice in Collierville TN he and Johnny started talking about how they could work together to raise some money for Cystic Fibrosis.  They started out by designing a line of glasses called Johnny Packer Eyewear that BW sells in his office today.  It was tough to market and sell the glasses online so they wanted a better way to make money online for CF.  BW is a self-proclaimed coffee addict and loved the idea of creating a coffee company, thus Johnny Packer Coffee Co. was born.
