CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - April 5, 2016) - Good Earth Coffeehouse (Good Earth) burst onto the Canadian coffee scene 25 years ago and continues an impressive expansion plan across the country. The coffeehouse has stayed true to the concept that has made it a favourite among customers: exceptional coffee and wholesome, fresh food in a welcoming and community-oriented environment.

This year, Good Earth, which has opened coffeehouses in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Ontario, celebrates the opening of its first location back in 1991. Good Earth has since seen substantial growth and has expanded to new markets with more than 45 locations in major centres across Canada. The expansion continues with new stores opening in Vancouver, Ottawa and Toronto in 2016.

New Good Earth Coffeehouse locations include an open kitchen that allows guests to see their food being prepared on the spot. Newly hired Corporate Chef Kari Ginakos has also reinvigorated the food menu by merging customer favourites with delicious, new items customers can feel good about. The open kitchen concept is a nod to Good Earth's early coffeehouses.

"We founded our company on strong, ethical values with a vision to remain authentic. Good Earth's atmosphere and fresh, wholesome food resonates with customers and separates us from typical coffee shops," said Michael Going, Founder and CEO, Good Earth Coffeehouse. "We've remained true to our core values with every new store we've opened and are proud of the growth we've achieved over the past 25 years. We're excited to bring the Good Earth experience to coffee lovers in other Canadian markets."

The company has fostered a social environment where community always comes first. More than a grab-and-go stop, Good Earth has successfully created a social gathering place that provides top-quality espresso drinks. "Coffeehouses are a social medium," says Nan Eskenazi, Founder, Good Earth Coffeehouse. "Communal tables and a warm, open design have been part of the success and have made our customers happy. We've grown one community and one location at a time starting with one coffeehouse in a small Calgary neighbourhood. We've seen tremendous growth and success by striving to incorporate every Good Earth Coffeehouse into the fabric of the community it's located in."

Good Earth was one of the first to offer the Canadian customer a true 'coffeehouse experience.' Furthermore, Good Earth continues to uphold its commitment to environmental sustainability by advocating ethically-sourced coffee, responsible farming, compostable packaging, and green energy. By partnering with farmers who promote environmental sustainability, Good Earth establishes direct trade practices that help improve communities where coffee is grown. Through numerous conservation initiatives, the company continues to plant a sustainable future for generations to come.
