There’s another Caffe Nero on the way, and this time the company will caffeinate students on the campus of Boston University. The London-based coffee chain continues to expand its presence in Massachusetts with this next shop, which will occupy space in a new building on Commonwealth Avenue that currently houses BU students, according to the company’s director for U.S. operations, Jay Gentile.
The new building that will house Caffe Nero at 1047 Comm. Ave. is situated between an Eastern Mountain Sports store and Planned Parenthood, near the Star Market at Packard’s Corner. Other cafe-style spots nearby include Blue State Coffee a few storefronts down and Angora Cafe across the street.
Caffe Nero has more than 600 locations in the United Kingdom and Ireland, and it has seen tremendous growth in Massachusetts within the last year. There are now 11 Caffe Nero locations operating in the area, and the BU shop is set to join the mix late in the spring or early this summer.
Update, 7/21/17: Softly opening tomorrow, July 22, from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. with free coffee.
