WHAT: Now, more than ever, the company is proud to be a part of the many wonderful neighborhoods in which it serves and remains committed to operating smartly in these unprecedented times.

As part of a phased approach, Peet’s has announced the reopening of 35 locations in California, Oregon, Washington, and Illinois, beginning May 4thAll locations are operating in a limited access model whereby the cafe space is closed to customers.

With limited access operations in effect, customers can order and pick up at the front door of the coffeebar, or place an order using Peet’s Mobile Order Ahead app. Through the app, customers can easily find their favorite beverages and product categories, with all locations offering whole and ground coffee beans for home brewing, too.

To operate smartly, the company has implemented enhanced protocols for cleaning and sanitation. Additionally, employees are required to wear face coverings while working, with symptom checks being conducted at the beginning of each shift. The company has also moved POS registers and chip readers to the front of the stores so customers can perform their own credit card transactions.  Chip pads are wiped down after each guest.

Peet’s is continuing to evaluate the existing conditions and evolve operations accordingly with the well-being of Peetniks and communities in mind.
