Baristas Files California Franchise Documents To Become Registered

SEATTLE, March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Baristas Coffee Company Inc. (OTC Pink: BCCI), a fast growing U.S. based beverage and branded products company, today announced that it has filed its UFOC Disclosure Documents, Operations Manual, Franchise Agreements, Financials, and all required support documentation to become registered to sell franchises in the state of California.

This filing is subsequent to the filing to become registered in Baristas' home state of Washington and once approved will not only allow the Company to sell franchises in California but will open up the ability to become approved in other states that require registration as well. This is the result of Baristas launching a major expansion push through its Franchising division. As of this date all operating locations are company owned.

Newly appointed Director of Store and Brand Development, Mike Reynolds, stated: "This is the beginning of a very strategic and coordinated growth plan.  We have had an influx of applications for franchises particularly in California and look forward to developing the region. We will also be filing in additional states that require registration that will allow us to expand our footprint. Baristas offers a very compelling business model and is provides the best opportunity in franchising that I have seen in my career and is clearly the best in its sector."   

Barry Henthorn CEO commented; " California is a natural fit for the Baristas business model and we look forward to branching into the region.  We will continue to push forward with our filings in other states maintaining strict adherence to all regulations and disclosure requirements. We expect this expansion and franchise push to yield strong partners that will aid in our expansion.  We expect this to result in the opening of new franchised locations that will increase our revenue while further decreasing Baristas Cost of Goods Sold as a result of larger volumes in our supply chain."

About Baristas Coffee Company (BCCI): Headquartered in the Seattle, Washington area, Baristas Coffee Company, Inc. was formed to create a national brand of drive-thru espresso stands. BCCI is accomplishing this by acquiring established businesses that fit its model, opening new locations, and by franchising. Baristas has separated itself from the competition with its "theme" of joining attractive female baristas in entertaining costumes preparing the finest beverages available on the market. Baristas can currently be found in six greater Seattle area locations as well as in Texas, Florida, Arizona, and Montana. Your state, Coming Soon!
