BRIDGEPORT COFFEE BEVERLY COFFEEHOUSE TO CLOSE
DECEMBER 4, 2017 – Bridgeport Coffee announces the coming closing of its Beverly coffeehouse at 9135 S. Western Avenue in Chicago. The Beverly coffeehouse’s final day of business will take place on Friday, December 15, 2017.
“The economics of the location were simply unsustainable, and we are very grateful to Beverly and other local residents for the support they showed,” said Mike Pilkington, president and founder of Bridgeport Coffee.
“The Beverly location, our fourth location, is an isolated case that does not affect the three other existing locations in Bridgeport, Hyde Park and the South Loop. All of those locations are doing very well. Likewise it does not affect our coming expansion plans for 2018 to be announced next year,” he said.
Founded in 2004, Bridgeport Coffee has grown from a single storefront at 31st and Morgan in historic Bridgeport to a multi-location chain of specialty coffee shops on Chicago’s South Side. Bridgeport Coffee has also dramatically expanded its roasting and importing capabilities over the years, directly importing tens of thousands of pounds of coffee annually from hand-selected coffee farms with whom Bridgeport Coffee maintains ongoing relationships.
