On Oct. 4 Bailey's General Store acquired the Coffee Bar at Bailey's, formerly owned by Hillgate Communications.
The Coffee Bar, founded in 2009 by Blanaid Colley, has been a very successful addition to Bailey's General Store and a firm favorite with both locals and visitors. The Coffee Bar recently won the best coffee award in the Best of the Islands 2013, increasing the Bailey's General Store Best Of wins to a total of six awards.
"The Coffee Bar at Bailey's was an immediate success from the day it opened and when Hillgate gave us the opportunity to acquire it we were delighted," said Richard and Mead Johnson of Bailey's. "We will be introducing new and exciting menu items to The Coffee Bar @ Bailey's. We look forward to serving our Coffee Bar customers."
Colley said, "We are very happy that the Coffee Bar has been so popular with customers of Baileys and island guests. Personally I am looking forward to enjoying my skinny lattes under the new management. The sale of the Coffee Bar means we are now able to devote more time to our other ventures."
The Coffee Bar is open seven days a week inside Baileys General Store.
