October 17, 2008 // Franchising.com // Indianapolis, IN - Bear Creek Coffee and Espresso Company, one of the fastest growing coffee chains with over 60 locations nationwide, is expanding to the Zain Iraq Headquarters to help perk up the spirits and economy of Baghdad!
Bear Creek Coffee & Espresso Company has built a strong & successful business model by providing a superior product, reliable equipment and exceptional service. Their keen awareness of local customs and preferences has fueled their success in a growing number of markets across the United States and is now enabling their newest licensee, Scott Munden, and managing partner, Hussein Shabibi, to aid in the rebirth of Baghdad with the promise and community spirit of a neighborhood coffee shop.
"We were looking for a quality brand that offered flexibility in licensing, a close working relationship with the manufacturer, and the ability to address the unique needs required to open locations in Iraq", says Munden. Bear Creek owners are not restricted to corporate menus or marketing packages, yet they still enjoy the experience and support of the Bear Creek Coffee operations team.
Scott and Hussein are committed to offering their customers award winning, fresh roasted Bear Creek Coffee, teas and smoothies, and the Shabibi family's signature cakes and pastries. They're dedicated to hiring friendly staff from the local community and providing a clean comfortable place for customers to relax while they enjoy their purchase. The Zain Iraq Headquarters Bear Creek Coffee hours of operation will be 07:00 AM to 05:00 PM Sunday through Thursday.
"Bear Creek Coffee is very proud to be part of the effort in helping the city of Baghdad move forward" says Chief Manager, Jeremie Johnson.
Bear Creek has developed a time-tested model for their business concept that relies on an unwavering commitment to quality without the extra fees associated with a franchise. Bear Creek Coffee & Espresso Company is currently expanding internationally and in select domestic markets.
