Bruegger's Opens in Nation's Capital
Bakery-cafe leader opens its first Washington D.C. location
Washington D.C. – The fresh bakery-cafe experience of Bruegger's has officially arrived in the nation's capital city. Bruegger's Enterprises, Inc. opened the first of several Bruegger's bakery-cafes in Washington D.C. The bakery is located at 2101 L Street NW and a second D.C. location is planned for mid-April 2008. The bakery, which features unlimited, free wireless Internet, is open daily from 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
"The District of Columbia is a new market for Bruegger's and we are proud to be in the nation's capital," said James J. Greco, Bruegger's CEO. "We recently opened other locations in the vicinity, with two bakeries in Alexandria. We look forward to developing this market and becoming a part of the community."
The first Washington D.C.-area Bruegger's opened in Virginia in February of 2006. There are currently plans to open two additional bakeries later this year in both Arlington and Washington D.C.
Kettle boiled first; Bruegger's bagels are baked fresh throughout the day to give them an authentic crunchy crust on the outside and a dense, chewy texture on the inside. In addition to fresh, hot bagels, Bruegger's offers an extensive menu free of artificial trans fats. Menu items include new Signature Soups, hand-crafted, fresh-tossed salads, made-to-order sandwiches and unique Green Mountain Coffee Roasters® coffee blends, including a daily Fair Trade CertifiedÔ blend.
