Einstein Bros. to launch Caribou Coffee at NSU

ABERDEEN, S.D. – Einstein Bros. ® Bagels announces the launch of Caribou Coffee premium handcrafted beverages into its menu line up at the Northern State University location.

Starting July 20, 2018, the existing Einstein Bros. restaurant will become a place where specialty coffee and fresh-baked bagels will live together under one roof. 

“We saw an opportunity to bring two beloved brands together to better service our Aramark clients and diners at Northern State University,” said Nicholas Schafer, SVP Licensing and Food Service. “Now you won’t have to choose between a great coffee experience and a great breakfast sandwich – you can have both.”   

Einstein Bros. Bagels joins Caribou Coffee in its commitment to serving the top 1 percent of the world’s best beans. Caribou Coffee sources 100 percent Rainforest Alliance certified beans and craft roasts them in small batches.

Throughout the remainder of 2018, the company plans to expand the presence of Caribou Coffee across Einstein Bros. stores nationally.
