Good Earth Coffeehouse Awarded Two Community Recreation Centre Sites by City of Edmonton

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Nov. 15, 2013) - Good Earth Coffeehouse will have two new locations in Edmonton in the new year. The City of Edmonton recently awarded sites to Good Earth within two new community recreation centres - The Meadows in the southeast and Clareview in the City's northeast.

"We're excited to bring Good Earth's exceptional coffee and wholesome food to people visiting Clareview and The Meadows. We are also looking forward to building positive relationships within these great communities," says founder Nan Eskenazi. "Community recreation centres are a natural fit for Good Earth," adds Gerry Docherty, President. "We are experienced in partnering with communities in this way, with our locations in the Collicutt Centre in Red Deer, Elevation Place in Canmore, and the Talisman Centre in Calgary."

Good Earth will award both locations to a qualified Franchise Partner who is well-aligned with both the Good Earth values and the City of Edmonton's mission to provide places for neighbours to gather, relax, and enjoy physical, social, cultural and artistic activities together - building healthy community ties.

The Meadows Community Recreation Centre is located in Edmonton's Silver Berry neighbourhood within the Meadows District Park, at 17th Street and 23rd Avenue. The 234,419 square-foot facility will provide indoor and outdoor recreational opportunities, including an aquatics centre, fitness centre, gymnasiums, ice rinks, outdoor fields-all creating a busy and active facility that is open and welcoming year round.
