San Ramon, Calif. – January 2, 2020 – City Center Bishop Ranch officials today announced that Philz Coffee, the handmade, one cup at a time, coffee shop will open at the 300,000-square-foot shopping, dining and entertainment destination this year.
“At Philz Coffee, our mission is to better people’s days through warmth and connection, one cup at a time,” said Philz Coffee CEO Jacob Jaber. “We do coffee differently, and we’re excited to introduce City Center Bishop Ranch and the entire Tri- Valley to our personalized coffees.’”
Philz Coffee has more than 50 locations in California, the Washington, DC Metro Area, and most recently in Chicago. The company offers more than 12 customized blends made from high-quality coffee beans sourced from around the world. There are more than 12 million ways to enjoy a Philz!
Customers order directly from a barista, who grind the beans for each cup and customize it to their preference. Philz is perhaps best known for being the originator of the Mint Mojito® Iced Coffee, made with fresh mint, cream and sugar.
Jaber said the recipe to his company’s success is simple: genuine customer service. “We always put the customer experience first.” Along with putting customers first, Jaber said, the company’s other core values include being quality driven and progress focused, and being kind and keeping it real.
“There isn’t a resident in the Bay Area who hasn’t heard of Philz Coffee,” said Alexander Mehran Jr., president and chief executive officer of Sunset Development Company, City Center’s owner and operator. “The quality speaks for itself.”
Philz coffee will be located on the southeast corner of the center, next to Pottery Barn Kids.
