Newsy Nuggets: Coffee and bread

Barnie’s in 2014 when it carried the CoffeeKitchen name (via Facebook).

Barnie’s Coffee & Tea Co., the Central Florida-based caffieneator, is organizing to execute a redo of the cafe thought on Park Avenue. In accordance to Scott Uguccioni, chief profits and marketing and advertising officer, it ought to transpire “sometime afterwards this calendar year,” but several other specifics are obtainable ideal now. He did say that just one of the factors they are finalizing consists of menu details, so I’m guessing that food will nonetheless be a aspect of this refresh.

It was virtually 11 several years ago that Barnie’s introduced its CoffeeKitchen thought at the Winter Park location with an bold program to offer food stuff along with its popular line of coffees and teas. They even at some point employed the estimable chef Camilo Velasco as the company’s government chef, who did in simple fact generate some mouth watering food products.

But for some reason, the principle by no means caught on, and CoffeeKitchen was dropped from the name. (Velasco, of program, moved on to 1921 by Norman Van Aken, then to Ravenous Pig and is now at Disney’s Outdated Critical West Vacation resort.)

So what will be diverse this time? Can not hold out to find out. But I’m guessing that with so quite a few Foxtails, Lineages, Credos and other upstarts to contend with, a rejuvenation of the 42-year-outdated company’s manufacturer is in get.

I’ll allow you know far more when I know much more.

(Also, I know a lot more. Shhh.)

Good Harvest Bread Co., the Montana-dependent “freedom franchisor” that opened in December of 2019 and closed a 12 months later, is established to reopen in the exact ground-floor space in Citi Tower but with new owners, or franpreneurs, as the business likes to phone them. New entrepreneurs are Evan DeLaney and Man Patterson, according to an write-up by Ross McWaters in What Now Orlando.

Speaking of bread, phrase is that Olde Fireplace Bread Firm can be included to the list of nearby meals and beverage entities that will have a presence in the new terminal to open up this tumble at Orlando Global Airport. I listen to they’ll provide extra than baguettes and boules, sandwiches will also be accessible for individuals on the fly.
