The Grand Opening of the second Baristas follows last week's opening of the first Baristas in Cape Coral located at 403 Cape Coral Parkway Cape Coral, Florida 33904 at the intersection of Palm Tree Blvd. On hand will be some of the Baristas featured in this years and next year's Baristas National Calendar, of which part was shot last week in Cape Coral. 25,000 free drink coupons (valid at both locations during the opening) will be available on the front page of the Fort Myers News Press, a Gannett Company circulated near the Baristas Locations on Oct. 30, 2013.

CEO Barry Henthorn stated, "The success of the first location has exceeded our expectations and we are confident that opening the second location will solidify Baristas as having a strong foothold in Cape Coral. The response from the media coverage, local TV ads, and general awareness of our arrival has certainly gotten the word out. We will continue running local TV ads supporting the first location and will also run TV ads specific to the opening of our second location. Opening a second location allows us to gain distinct advantages relating to staffing, supply chain, and brand awareness. By opening the locations back to back we will be able to pool resources regarding training, advertising, and travel. The purchase of the land and building for our second location in the region, specifically for the purpose of operating a Baristas, exemplifies the commitment and confidence we have in the expansion of the Baristas model."
