Barnie’s is refocusing its efforts on e-commerce and franchising this year, and starting this fall, the chain expects to open a new store a week. Presently some 15 units are in the development pipeline. A new policy now allows sales of single-unit franchises as well as area development agreements. A mall-based coffeehouse for 25-plus years, Barnie’s is now expanding into beer, wine and sandwiches in addition to its coffee, tea and pastries.
