Nancy and Brett were excited to welcome their Penticton neighbours to their new Blenz store which has been carefully designed to provide a warm and contemporary ambiance where customers are encouraged to gather and relax, enjoy their beautifully handcrafted quality beverages and treats, and where they can also enjoy use of the free wireless internet and share in a conversation and a smile.
Nancy completed the rigorous six-week Master Barista training program at Blenz Coffee Academy in Vancouver, finishing the course with flying colours. Fellow BCA star, Carol Dyck, who recently took over Blenz in West Kelowna, was happy to make the trip to the Grand Opening of the Blenz - Penticton.
Blenz Master Franchisor for the Okanagan region, David McDougall, was enthusiastic about this newest addition to the Okanagan franchise. “We are very pleased that Nancy and Brett DeWitt have joined the Blenz family as the franchise partner and operators of the new Blenz Coffee store in Penticton. We think their enthusiasm for business and passion for coffee will play a major part in their success in Penticton.” As to the Penticton location, McDougall’s business partner, Graham Hawkins, said, “It’s been a priority for us to locate a Blenz Coffee store in Penticton. It’s a thriving community, and we’re sure that Blenz will be well-received by all the people of the city.” Blenz The Canadian Coffee Company Ltd. has built a strong reputation as providers of fine coffee, tea, and chocolate-based beverages in the Okanagan region. MacDougall and Hawkins are confident in their continued opportunities for growth of their franchise. This is the fifth Blenz location in the Okanagan Valley, and they continue to work on new opportunities in the area.
