One opens in former Kleinburg Starbucks location, the other in Vaughan Metropolitan Centre
In March, Kleinburg residents had to bid farewell to their only Starbucks, which was situated at a historic home that gave it a vintage feel.
At the time, the owner said she was in talks to bring another coffee shop to the Arthur McNeil House.
In a surprise move, Balzac’s Coffee Roasters, a boutique coffee chain, announced on Oct. 1 the opening of not only one joint in Kleinburg but also another at the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre (VMC), with soaring ceilings and an airy modern esthetic.
The opening of this boutique Canadian coffee shop is the first in York Region, bringing the total number of Balzac’s locations in Ontario to 16.
“We couldn’t be more excited to open the doors to our new cafés and introduce more Ontarians to Balzac’s Coffee,” said Diana Olsen, president and founder. “It’s a bit of good news in otherwise challenging times and reminds us that even with social distancing and new safety enhancements, people still love to connect through great coffee,” she added.
“We are also in a position to quickly adapt to further government and health regulations – should there be a need.”
