BMOC PARTNERS announced today a continuation of its aggressive roll out of Baristas franchised mall locations. A 1,000-square-foot inline space at the Johnstown Mall, Johnstown, Pa., has been leased which will be the second Baristas Coffee Company Franchise in Pennsylvania scheduled to open this spring.
The location is along the mall’s main corridor and will allow for cafe seating nearby. An opening date by May 1st is expected, stated Lance Lehr, President, BMOC Partners. The unit will continue the modified Baristas concept of a coffee, soup, salad, sandwiches, desserts, menu that features quality, healthy, food.
Lehr added that other mall operators are excited about bmoc’s franchise development activities and have had an enthusiastic reaction on providing high profile retail spaces for future expansion and consideration. Lehr said, "There are many mall locations we are in discussions with currently that will significantly add to the Baristas brand, and continue the expansion of the Baristas coffee model, adding quality and fresh traditional food in a quick service environment alongside the Baristas-branded products.
"We are pleased to have secured our second mall location in our initial 5 location expansion within the northeast region. As in our DuBois location, we will be supporting this location with an aggressive marketing campaign to make the cafe a must-stop on a regular basis. We are working in conjunction with mall management on internal promotions and mall-based activities planned to immediately integrate the Baristas Cafe into the community."
BMOC expects to announce the next 3 locations within the next 30 to 60 days.
