CEO Barry Henthorn stated, "The opening of Baristas new Sports Bar marks an expansion of the baristas brand and drive through coffee concept. The property has a strong local following and based on its past performance should boost sales such that Baristas revenues are expected to double in the third quarter just from this one acquisition. Having a partner that has been successfully managing this property for over a decade and is familiar with the market dramatically increases our likelihood for success."

The established bike night on Thursdays, solid week day and weekend traffic, and great visibility from I-75 make this a perfect place to launch this expanded Baristas concept.
