Bridgehead arrives at Carleton!
We are excited to announce the opening of the first Bridgehead Coffee shop ever at Carleton! For those of you not familiar with the brand, Bridgehead is an Ottawa staple that offers delicious Fairtrade coffee, savoury foods, and a friendly atmosphere.
Bridgehead opened its first Coffeehouse in Ottawa in 2000 and has been serving Fairtrade coffee ever since. Every cup of coffee they serve uses beans roasted locally in small batches at the Bridgehead Roastery.
Bridgehead believes strongly in fostering great relationships with the farmers they work with so that they can help guests better understand where their coffee comes from. All of their baked goods and breakfast and lunch wraps – including several vegan and vegetarian options – served at Bridgehead are made from scratch at their kitchen in Ottawa using as many local ingredients as possible.
With a focus on sustainability, Bridgehead recently partnered with Ottawa Climate Action Fund. Every time you use your own mug at Bridgehead, 20 cents will be donated to OCAF to help find and fund low-carbon solutions in Ottawa.
Whether it’s for your morning wake me up or afternoon latte, breakfast or lunch wrap, or fresh beans to brew at home, the team at Bridgehead are happy to help with recommendations. If you’re in a hurry, you can use the Bridgehead app and order ahead! It’s available for both Apple and Android devices.
Today, the company boasts 20 locations across Ottawa, and recently partnered with Carleton’s Sprott School of Business. The partnership is focused on exploring sustainability and social enterprise, with Bridgehead being used as a case study in a number of business courses including entrepreneurship, marketing, business strategy, operations and supply chain management.
Carleton Dining Services is excited to partner with Bridgehead, as we believe they embody our philosophy of Real Food, Real Choice.
