Area coffee firm’s cafes to appear in 130 Publix stores
ST. PETERSBURG — Publix and Kahwa Coffee Roasters have teamed up to roll out Kahwa-branded cafes at 130 supermarkets across the southeast. The deal will also see St. Petersburg-based Kahwa produce a new blend, dubbed Cubano, developed specifically for the cafes.
The first two cafes will open at Publix stores in Winter Garden and Bradenton, according to a press release. The Cubano blend will also be available at Kahwa’s 12 existing cafes across the Tampa Bay region.
The Publix announcement coincides with Kahwa Coffee’s plans to open new cafes at a pair of popular, high-traffic shopping malls: International Plaza in Tampa and University Town Center in Sarasota.
