Beginning on Monday, June 12, 2000, Tully’s Coffee locations in downtown Seattle began offering a selection of Briazz gourmet sandwiches and salads.
Briazz will prepare the gourmet food items and deliver them daily to Tully’s Coffee locations. Tully’s will offer a range of Briazz’s breakfast sandwiches, best-selling signature sandwiches, salads and new “rustic slices.” New rustic slices are prepared on Focaccia bread with sliced meats, lettuce and gourmet spreads.
Victor Alhadeff, Briazz founder and CEO, said, “We are very excited about the opportunity to offer an excellent assortment to the Tully’s guest. Tully’s Coffee locations are ideal venues to showcase Briazz products.”
Tom O’Keefe, Tully’s Coffee founder, chairman and CEO, said, “As Tully’s continues to expand its market presence, it is important to offer only the best coffee and food items to our customers. Partnering with Briazz will provide customers with a combination of premium products from two established, Seattle-based companies.”
Based in Seattle, Washington, Briazz was founded by Victor Alhadeff with the mission of filling the niche for quick, affordable and healthy food for the downtown worker.
