Indianapolis, IN (December 13, 2007) – Bear Creek Coffee and Espresso Company is has opened its 50th & 51st location in Kalamazoo & Battle Creek Michigan. The double drive-thru coffee units are licensed to Alan Yanke and Utah and Annah Keller. "We're excited to be able to offer such a great high quality product, served in such a warm and convenient manner. The people of Battle Creek are going to love not getting out of their cars on a cold and dreary winter morning"! claimed Alan.
Bear Creek Coffee & Espresso Company is based in Avon, IN with open stores in 22 states across the country and expanding at the rate of one store opening per week. The Bear Creek Coffee & Espresso Drive-Thru units are the first Bear Creek location to come to Michigan; however, there are plans for growth in the near future. Five other Bear Creek Coffee licensees are in various stages of site selection and zoning and permitting processes. Additionally the company has 10 more locations available to prospective owners in the state, along with many available sites in Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Indiana, and Ohio. "We have a great location and site selection service that we offer to our owners" states Pete Lambros, National sales Director.
Both locations will serve Bear Creek Coffee's fresh small batch micro roasted coffees and espresso drinks as well as teas, smoothies, cold drinks, pastries and hot chocolate for the kids. Their coffees will be roasted and blended to order in-house, at the Bear Creek Coffee Roasting Plant, then vacuum sealed for freshness and shipped the day after roasting. Inventory will be controlled to assure that all beans are brewed within 10 to 14 days of opening to insure maximum freshness! "We put a lot of time into finding the right coffee company with the right coffee product for us to offer to the people of Kalamazoo. We want to be the best, friendliest and most convenient choice for our neighbors!" say the Kellers.
National Sales Director, Pete Lambros, also states that the company is under rapid expansion. "We offer enough Opportunities to accommodate all levels of investments. Our owners enjoy the fact that we do not charge them any Franchise Fees, Royalties, or on-going Advertising Fees. So you get all the services but without the fees."
