Baristas Opens New Mobile Unit Bringing Coffee to Unique Locations Producing Revenue at Promotions Year Round

SEATTLE, Dec. 16, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Baristas Coffee Company, Inc. (OTCPK:BCCI), Via GlobeNewswire, a Nasdaq Company, announced that it has purchased its first mobile espresso trailer to be used as a semi-permanent and mobile drive through/walk up sales and promotions vending location. The 15 foot self-contained Health Department approved unit is complete and has operated successfully for an extended period under another brand. The mobile has undergone a full retrofit to insure maximum Baristas branding and quality of products.

The new mobile concept will be located at various semi-permanent and transient locations near areas of construction, parking lots, fairs, sporting events, nightclubs, and concerts throughout the year. The unit may also be used as a temporary Baristas during construction of new locations.

Barry Henthorn CEO stated: "We have wanted to have a mobile unit for some time but the priorities of compliance and corporate governance have been a priority over growth. Now that we are fully reporting and continuing our up-listing we are in a very strong position to execute on the pent up opportunities for expansion. This is the first of what is intended to become a fleet of mobile Baristas. Mobile units will allow us to reach markets that we are unable to service with traditional stand-alone locations which will support the Baristas brand. Our first mobile location has already begun generating revenues while spreading the Baristas brand as it migrates throughout the area and even while it is on the road. The mobile concept is a natural complement to our existing locations and will allow us to take advantage of short term opportunities for sales and promotions at events.
