Company Summary

We will fill the fresh, clean food void left by bagels and donuts. Baked coffeehouse food is no longer desirable and traditional breakfast restaurants are not meeting the convenience or health-conscious requirements of today's busy professional, parent or student. We can make fresh food to order, wrap it and package it with quality coffee drinks. Limited-service and small space requirement makes replication simple.
