Grand opening of Caribou Coffee & Einstein Bros. BagelsPosted: Updated:
Caribou Coffee & Einstein Bros. Bagels are debuting their newest coffee and bagels concept in Tempe.
Doors opened at 5 a.m. on Wednesday, October 14. But people camped out as early as 9:45 a.m. the day before, just to be one of the first in line. That's because the first 50 people in line scored a coupon booklet for a free medium coffee, bagel and shmear each week for a year.
This new location will be the first in the state to feature both Caribou Coffee's specialty coffee and handcrafted beverages, along with Einstein Bros. fresh-baked bagels and shmear.
"We are excited to open a new coffee and bagels concept featuring both Caribou Coffee & Einstein Bros. Bagels," said Mike Tattersfield, CEO, Caribou Coffee and ENRGI. "We love being a part of the Tempe community and we're looking forward to seeing our neighbors on grand opening day and beyond."
The new location will feature both brands' aesthetics as well as new design elements that portray their neighborly, quirky and optimistic brand equities.
Both Caribou and Einstein Bros. Bagels fan favorites will be on the combined menu, such as Caribou's Carmel Highrise and Einstein Bros. wide variety of fresh-baked flavors. Different limited-time offerings will complement each other like Caribou's Pumpkin Chai Latte and Einstein Bros. pumpkin bagel and shmear.
The Tempe Caribou Coffee and Einstein Bros. Bagels location is located at 725 S Rural Rd, Tempe AZ, 85281 and is open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday.
