Caffe Bene to Open in Boston
It looks like the second largest coffee franchise in the world is coming to New England, and its first location will be in one of the busiest sections of Boston.
Boston Magazine is reporting that South Korea-based Caffe Bene is planning to open at an undisclosed location near Symphony Hall, with a July opening possible. The article also says that two more locations of the coffeehouse will come to Boston by the end of the year, though it is not known where these will be. Once Caffe Bene opens in the city, expect to see such items as coffee, bubble tea, waffles, sandwiches, gelato, and more.
Caffe Bene first started out in Seoul in 2008 and now has 86 locations in the United States, as well as a huge number of spots in other countries. (Boston Magazine says that more than 4,000 locations of the franchise could be opening in America by 2020.) The website for the chain can be found at http://www.caffebeneusa.com/
