A coffee-roasting company in the midst of a massive national expansion plans to open a location in Boston. La Colombe is reportedly in the process of negotiating a lease somewhere in the city and could open some time this year, but details are not finalized.
In September 2014, La Colombe co-founder Todd Carmichael and his business partner signed a $28.5 million investment deal that will enable an expansion to the tune of 100 new cafes over five years. Carmichael also hosts a show on Travel Channel called Dangerous Grounds.
La Colombe currently has multiple locations across Philadelphia; Washington, DC; New York; and Chicago.
