PJ's Coffee of New Orleans has signed an agreement to open five locations across Maryland, northern Virginia and Washington D.C. within the next four years. The first location as part of the agreement is expected to open in Silver Spring, Maryland, in September. “Expanding our reach nationally has been a goal of PJ's Coffee for some time. The addition of the Silver Spring, Maryland location is a defining step toward that goal for the brand,” says David Mesa, Executive Vice President and Chief Development Officer of PJ's Coffee. “We have a high level of confidence in this franchise group's ability to represent and grow the brand in this region, and look forward to the addition of more locations.” Spearheading the development are franchisees Deepak, Sunil and Sabina Shrestha along with Shaq Qureshi, who are looking to expand their food and beverage portfolio. “PJ's Coffee is a household brand name in the South,” Deepak Shrestha says. “We are confident that PJ's Coffee will be well-received in the mid-Atlantic communities as it becomes a neighbourhood staple and continues to expand its footprint nationwide.” PJ's Coffee serves a variety of iced, frozen, hot, cold brew, and nitro-infused coffees using Arabica beans, as well as organic tea and fresh breakfast pastries. PJ's Coffee aims to add 40 locations throughout Maryland, Virgina and Washington D.C over the next 10 years. PJ's Coffee of New Orleans was founded in 1978 and acquired by Ballard Brands in 2008. The New Orleans-based coffeehouse operates more than 100 locations.
