Caffè Nero is planning a fifth Boston location in Fort Point, according to a tweet from The Fort Pointer. The European-based chain specializes in finely crafted Italian coffee and serves breakfast, sandwiches, and other cafe foods.
Jay Gentile, director of U.S. operations for Caffè Nero, told Eater the company was in the very early stages of looking into opening a new store at 368 Congress St. in Fort Point. He said he anticipated a long process working with the City of Boston, however, as many of the buildings in that area are historic locations.
"When we work on older buildings anywhere, we try to bring them into what they once were," he said. "It's going to be quite a while."
The company is headquartered on Congress Street, Gentile said, so they would like to secure a location for a store nearby.
"All of our growth has always been organic and opportunistic," he said.
