CALGARY — Good Earth has opened its first location in Indigo in Calgary, marking the start of a growing partnership, with nearly 20 locations planned to open by spring 2023.
The first coffeehouse opened in Chapters at the CF Chinook Centre on Nov. 18, solidifying this new partnership. Further expansion plans include new cafés opening in Toronto, Edmonton, Calgary, Vancouver, Halifax, Winnipeg and southwestern Ontario.
Good Earth’s expansion creates ownership opportunities for single and multi-unit franchisees, attracting like-minded customers, landlords and franchisees who want to align their social and ecological values with a business.
Since 1991, special attention to community interaction and environmental responsibility has been part of the company’s everyday mission. Good Earth serves a selection of coffees, including Rainforest Alliance Certified and Direct Trade, and proudly uses commercially-compostable paper coffee cups and hot food containers.
“We are so pleased to be opening our first retail location and being Calgary born. It’s only fitting to open our first location with Indigo at the Chapters in our home city,” says Nan Eskenazi, founder of Good Earth Cafes Ltd. “We look forward to providing Indigo guests across the county with a place to gather and enjoy a cup of coffee and some good food.”
“We’re excited to partner with Good Earth Coffeehouse to bring their elevated experience to our customers,” says Peter Ruis, CEO of Indigo. “With aligned core values of quality, a commitment to sustainable practices and bringing people together, it could not be a more natural fit. Good Earth prides itself in being a community coffeehouse with good food, and we’re thrilled to offer our customers an opportunity to enjoy the space and connect with one another while they shop with us.”
