Café Britt expands operations to Mexico, Antigua, and Chile

August 14, 2009

Costa Rican specialty coffee provider Café Britt has announced plans to expand operations and construct locations in Antigua, Chile, Mexico and Peru. Café Britt also intends to build eight more locations in Costa Rica in the next 12 months.

The expansion of the Café Britt line, which originated in Costa Rica in 1985, will begin with a location in the V.C. Bird International Airport in the Caribbean island of Antigua. Café Britt will also construct a café in Iquique, Chile, as well as locations in Urubamba and Paracas, Peru. In Cancún, Mexico, Café Britt is creating a bean roasting plant to develop a line of Mexican produced coffee, according to media reports from around the region.

The new international locations, as well as the eight new Costa Rican stores, required an investment of $5 million. The next two locations planned for Costa Rica are expected to be located in the Cariari and Corobicí hotels in San José.

According to the Café Britt website, the company currently has over 50 locations in five different countries. Café Britt´s first international expansion was in Peru in 2005.
