Timothy's World Coffee opens first U.S. location at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport

TORONTO, April 4 /CNW/ - Timothy's World Coffee today announced expansion efforts into the U.S., with the opening of a café at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport. The decision comes at a time of significant growth for Vermont-based Bruegger's Enterprises Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiary Threecaf Brands, which operates Timothy's cafés.

"Bruegger's existing operating infrastructure in the U.S. sets the stage to expand our Canadian brand south of the border," said Jim Greco, CEO of Bruegger's Enterprises, Inc. "We're confident that the quality and variety of coffee choices featured at Timothy's World Coffee will be well received by American consumers."

Bruegger's success in the Cleveland market, coupled with a strong local operating partner and the recognized need for premium coffee, makes the city and the airport location an ideal fit for a foray into the U.S.

Guests at the first U.S. Timothy's will appreciate the opportunity to explore and experience the wide selection of over 30 premium blends, including mild, medium and strong roasts, flavoured and ethical coffees as well as a variety of specialty coffees made exclusively from 100% Rainforest Alliance Certified Espresso. All coffees may be paired with a sweet treat or savoury snack from Timothy's broad menu selection of bakery items and sandwiches for breakfast and lunch.

"Timothy's is a strong brand in Canada and has carved out a distinctive position in the market as being the global coffee experts.  We are confident this will resonate with an American consumer base that is becoming more and more advanced and educated when it comes to coffee and their coffee preferences," said Greco.

Timothy's plans on opening two more U.S. locations in the coming months, in West Roxbury, Mass. and St. Paul, Minn.
