License Location Is 27th to Introduce Einstein Bros. Offerings in 2007
ALEXANDRIA, Va., Dec. 20 // PRNewswire-FirstCall // -- Employees and visitors of the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) now have a more convenient option to get their favorite craveable food, as the agency's main campus began offering select Einstein Bros.(R) Bagels menu items Dec. 12.
The addition of the USPTO brings the number of license locations to begin offering Einstein Bros. products in 2007 to 27. A selection of Einstein Bros.' eclectic sandwiches made with high quality ingredients, crisp, fresh salads and Darn Good Coffee(R) will be made available in the USPTO's Randolph Building eatery, where the complete Einstein Bros. license restaurant is scheduled to open in January 2008.
"I'm pleased that the USPTO has begun offering Einstein Bros.' food and coffee to its employees and visitors, and I look forward to the complete restaurant opening early next year," said Paul Carolan, senior vice president of franchising and licensing for Einstein Noah Restaurant Group (Nasdaq: BAGL). "This is a great addition to our licensing portfolio."
The USPTO is the first non-military U.S. government establishment to begin offering Einstein Bros. menu items.
"The popular Einstein Bros. brand continues to expand," said Paul Murphy, CEO. "I'm excited to bring the unique recipes and baking heritage of the brand to the visitors and employees at the USPTO."
