Blackrock Coffee has opened its 100th coffee shop in the US, a 2,000sq ft store in Chandler, Arizona and its 22nd location in the state.
"I attribute this significant milestone for us to two things: Number one is we were founded on our three principles – and that's coffee, community and connection. Number two is we are guided by what we call the 4 G's – Grit, Growth, Grace and Gratitude," said Jeff Hernandez, Co-Founder and Executive Chairman of Black Rock Coffee Bar.
"These two things serve as the foundation of Black Rock and I want to thank every single employee for their contributions and hard work. We wouldn't be here without our wonderful baristas and customers across the country."
Founded in 2008 in Portland, Black Rock has expanded across Arizona, California, Idaho, Oregon, Texas and Washington. The company seeks to provide opportunities for young people in employment, education and business leadership.
