Coffee Café Bluestone Lane Plans 15 Openings in 2021

Specialty coffee roaster, café and lifestyle brand Bluestone Lane plans to open up to 15 locations this year. Planned new openings over the next few weeks will include three in Lower Manhattan, where Bluestone Lane is headquartered, and one each in Brooklyn, San Francisco and Los Angeles. The company has also slated its first Texas location to open later this year.
“Bluestone Lane built a loyal following in bustling cities, where our locals could enjoy their daily escape with premium coffee and a healthy meal,” said founder and CEO Nicholas Stone. “Many locals have moved to the suburbs, but we also know that major cities like New York aren’t going away. So our expansion plan includes both.”

With the success of a test pilot at Bluestone Lane’s Los Altos, CA café, the brand also plans to expand a mobile-enabled drive-thru experience to additional suburban locations.
