The decision from the Canadian-based company 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 the quality and variety of coffee choices featured at Timothy’s World Coffee will be well received by American consumers.”
Guests at the U.S. Timothy’s will have access to the company’s selection of more than 30 premium blends, flavoured and ethical coffees as well as specialty coffees and a 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.
Plans are in the works to open two more Timothy’s U.S. locations in the coming months — one in West Roxbury, Mass., and the other in St. Paul, Minn.
