|A new Bridgehead location opened in an Ottawa snowbank Saturday.|
Bridgehead Vice President of Operations Dan Burgess says the opportunity has presented itself to open the new location and offer customers their delicious selection of coffees and foods in a compostable building structure. "We thought the large snowbanks that the City Of Ottawa snowplows piled up on regional streets provided a sustainable and ecologically friendly building opportunity for us to open a new location." said Burgess. "We know Ottawa stays damn cold all winter so it won't melt away until April, at which point we will move the location into a recently built condo development." Burgess explained.
The new snowbank Bridgehead opened Saturday to crowds of coffee thirsty customers who enjoyed the innovative use of the perpetual Ottawa city street snowbanks. The location even provides a stroller drive-thru window for those West-end customers with oversized baby strollers on skis.
