First Peet’s Coffee and Tea opens in DC Today

1701 Pennsylvania Ave, NW formerly Caribou Coffee

From a press release:

“Peet’s Coffee & Tea, a specialty coffee and tea company that started the artisan coffee movement back in 1966, today announced its first major retail launch in the Washington D.C. Metropolitan Area. The company will open 23 new stores in a phased rollout across the market this year, employing approximately 350 people. A flagship store at 1701 Pennsylvania Avenue, just steps from the White House, opens today. Peet’s entry into D.C. will become the company’s second largest retail market outside of California and its biggest East Coast retail footprint.

In an effort to support the local community, Peet’s is partnering with local non-profit 826DC to provide dedicated store space for student tutoring sessions and writing workshops. Also, Peet’s is now the new, official coffee of the Washington Nationals, D.C.’s Major League Baseball franchise, and will be served at Nationals Park.”
