Phoenix-based Pressed Coffee will open four additional in-store shops with Sprouts.
Following a successful pilot program, Sprouts Farmers Market is expanding its partnership with Press Coffee to bring additional in-store shops to four of its Phoenix-area stores. The first new location opened Nov. 17, and the rest are slated to open by February 2024.
Each in-store Press Coffee bar will feature a workspace area and full drink menu that includes specialty drip and cold brew coffee, shakers, hot and iced tea, and nitro bold brew. The locations will also offer a selection of regular in-store retail items including whole and ground coffee beans.
