Baltimore Coffee and Tea Co. plans to expand in the Baltimore metro area, adding three new locations at St. John Properties’ projects by the first quarter of next year.

The Timonium-based company, which provides 120 varieties of coffee and operates the Eastern Shore Tea Co. brand, will open the first of its new locations in The Government and Technology Enterprise office park within Aberdeen Proving Grounds. Locations at 231 Najoles Road in the I-97 business park in Anne Arundel County and at the Annapolis Junction Town Center are expected to open in the first quarter of 2018.

“When presented with these three one-of-a-kind locations, we found them impossible to turn down based on existing demographics and expected growth, which is fueling our current expansion program,” Norm Loverde, vice president of Baltimore Coffee and Tea Co., said in a statement. “Aberdeen Proving Ground is a fully contained environment where employees depend upon on-site restaurant amenities and we believe will fill a daily requirement. We recognize 231 Najoles Road as a landmark office project in a rapidly expanding section of Anne Arundel County, with an in-place anchor tenant that contains more than 400 associates. And, in Annapolis Junction Town Center, we were attracted by the diverse, pedestrian-friendly TOD environment with a strong traffic generator in the MARC Station. This project also features a built-in audience with the residents of the apartment building.”

Baltimore Coffee and Tea Co. already operates five restaurants in the area and two express locations in Baltimore City.
