Backspace (Portland, Oregon)


imageBackspace

Backspace (sometimes Backspace Cafe) was a coffee shop, gallery, Internet café, and all-ages music venue located in the Old Town Chinatown neighborhood of Portland, Oregon, in the United States.

Owner and painter Eric Robison opened Backspace, which was located at 115 Northwest 5th Avenue in Portland's Old Town Chinatown neighborhood, as a coffee shop in July 2003. He was inspired by two nearby stores within the same neighborhood, operated by Katsu Tanaka: Compound, a gallery, and Just Be Toys, a Japanese-themed toy and DVD rental store. Robison and his brother Kris had considered operating the business in the Pearl District, but were "attracted to the edginess" of the building. He recalled, "People said, 'Dude, you're insane,' when I told them where it was. I saw the exposed brick, and the whole cyberpunk feel that we could pursue. It was a little too frou-frou in the Pearl." Robison also recalled fending off drug activity outside the store by barring dealers and users from entry. The building that housed Backspace was renovated by the city and Portland Development Commission.

The establishment had been described as a gallery, a computer gaming and Internet café, and an "oft-beleaguered" all-ages music venue. It was one of several businesses in the neighborhood, including Ground Kontrol, geared towards young people who worked in the technology industry. According to Willamette Week's Matthew Singer, Backspace "[evolved] into the epicenter of Portland's underage music culture" because of a one-off Thermals performance in 2007. The space hosted a variety of events, including Portland Development Commission meetings (2007), an anti-bullying event called "Frank Conversations: Speaking Out on Bullying" (2010), and a concert by Dustin Ruth, the Battle Ground, Washington-based singer-songwriter and frontman of the band Ruth (2011).

Baristas


Baristas Corporation is an American costume coffee company and coffeehouse chain based in Seattle, Washington. It's known for primarily hiring young attractive women to run the stores and serve coffee, and for the sexy costumes they wear. The company was recently voted the "Best Coffee Company in the USA" by the coffee stand mapping service, Ibikinicoffee.

Baristas began offering franchises in its home state of Washington in 2013, and then all 50 U.S. states by the end of 2013.

On March 11, 2014, Baristas announced that it has begun its initial phase of national advertising specifically intended to highlight the success of the Company's business model and the opportunities for franchising. The marketing push entails various forms of media including local and national TV, radio, print, and digital. Some of the confirmed outlets are Forbes, WSJ, USA Today, NY Times, CNBC, All Business, Business News Journal, Entrepreneur, Business Insider and numerous business reference sites.

The company was featured in the March issue of Inc. magazine in an article entitled "Fast-Growing Franchises Lead Industry Into 2015" and was voted "Best Opportunity Value" by the magazine's Franchise and License Resource Guide.

On January 27, 2012, Baristas contracted Meredith Walusek the star of the Tampa MJ Morning Show to open audition for a reality show. Baristas then hired M&M Productions (founded by Mark Mayer) and produced a promotional video for a reality television show. The reality show has not yet been picked up by a television station.

On April 4, 2012, Baristas announced a distribution agreement with a major New York City-based ice cream distribution company, Calip Dairies. By the summer of 2012, many New York retail stores began to stock the Baristas' brand ice cream.

In January 2013, Baristas, Starbucks, and Patrick Dempsey bid in auction for ownership of the Tully's Chain of coffee houses. Patrick Dempsey outbid both Baristas and Starbucks and was the winner of the auction. Not long after the auction Dempsey backed-out, which resulted in a lawsuit with partners Avenatti.

On March 6, 2013, Baristas announced that it has completed all requirements and that its application to receive a symbol to be traded on the NASDAQ Capital Market has been approved. The symbol issued to Baristas Coffee Company is (NASDAQ: BAPI). Baristas is continuing to trade under the symbol OTCPK:BCCI throughout the application process.

Biggby Coffee


imageBiggby Coffee

Biggby Coffee (pronounced Big-Bee) is a privately owned coffee franchise business based in East Lansing, Michigan. Founded March 1995 as Beaner's by Bob Fish and Mary Roszel, the company changed its name to Biggby Coffee in late 2007.

Biggby began franchising in 1999. The company headquarters is located at 2501 Coolidge Road, East Lansing, Michigan.

The first Beaner's Coffee opened in March 1995 in a converted Arby's restaurant on Grand River Avenue in East Lansing, Michigan.

Fish, Roszel and Michael McFall (who was originally hired by Roszel as a barista in the first store) decided to franchise the company and founded Global Orange Development, LLC in June 1998. In August 1999 the first franchise location was opened in Okemos, Michigan and in October of the same year, another location was opened in East Lansing. In the following four years, nine more locations were opened throughout Michigan and Ohio.

Originally unaware that "beaner" is an ethnic slur for Mexicans, in late 2007, the chain decided to change its name from Beaner's to Biggby Coffee. Biggby was chosen as it was a vocalization of the logo, a "big B", which was a "fun" name. The first store opened under the name Biggby Coffee on October 29, 2007, in Westland, Michigan. The change in name was completed in all stores by January 31, 2008. In December 2007, BIGGBY was awarded MBC Global’s 3rd Quarter Multicultural Achievement Award for completing the name change on a completely voluntary basis. In that same year, the company was named to Entrepreneur Magazine's Annual Franchise 500(R) list, ranked 289 out of the 500 companies profiled. In 2008, Biggby moved up 34 spots to number 255, the second among coffee retailers on the list.

In September 2011, the company was named the fastest growing coffee chain in America by CNBC, which ranked the chain number one, based on their growth percentage from the previous year. Biggby was ranked above other popular brands such as Starbucks, Dunkin' Donuts and Caribou Coffee. Biggby was also named a top 30 food franchise in the United States by Franchise Business Review in both 2011 and 2012. The report compiled results based on surveys from franchisees in the food sector, representing more than 75 brands and 20,500 franchised businesses. For the year of 2012, Biggby was ranked as number 268 on Entrepreneur Magazine's Annual Franchise 500(R) list, and as a top 500 franchise by Franchise Times Magazine. In 2013, Biggby moved up 67 spots on Entrepreneur Magazine's Annual Franchise list to number 201.

Blue Bottle Coffee Company


imageBlue Bottle Coffee Company

Blue Bottle Coffee Company is a coffee roaster and retailer headquartered in Oakland, California, United States. The company focuses on single-origin beans. The CEO & founder of the company is James Freeman.

The company while based in Oakland, California soon expanded to other areas around the country. Blue Bottle first expanded to several cafés in locations around San Francisco, including the Ferry Building and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art's rooftop garden.

W. James Freeman founded Blue Bottle Coffee in the early 2000s in Oakland, CA, borrowing the name from one of Europe's first cafes, The Blue Bottle Coffee House. His intention was to roast coffee in small batches (6 lb.s per roast) to sell within 24 hours of roasting, initially as a home-delivery service. Blue Bottle soon ceased deliveries, and opened as a traditional cafe.

Blue Bottle opened additional locations in San Francisco and elsewhere in the San Francisco Bay Area, and then opened its first New York location in 2010. The company-owned stores carry off-menu items such as the "Gibraltar", a form of cortado. San Francisco-based contemporaries include Four Barrel Coffee and Ritual Coffee Roasters, among others. In 2012, Blue Bottle followed in the footsteps of previously independent roasters like Stumptown Coffee by taking $20 million in venture capital investment.

In 2015, Blue Bottle completed a venture capital round in which it raised $70 million+ from investors led by Fidelity.

Blue Bottle locations have no wifi and no power outlets to encourage guests to talk to each other.
