Australian-inspired specialty coffee roaster, café, and lifestyle brand Bluestone Lane plans to open up to 15 locations this year, making Bluestone Lane one of the fastest-growing premium cafés in the country and among the Inc. 5000’s fastest-growing private companies based in NYC.

New openings include:

  • Manhattan’s Battery Park (3/25)
  • Three locations at New York’s 28-acre Chelsea Piers (4/1): a café on the north side of the complex and coffee shops at the Manhattan and Brooklyn Chelsea Piers Fitness locations
  • The Avery in San Francisco (4/15)
  • The Walt Disney-run Fox Lot in Century City, LA (4/15), which will serve as the exclusive provider of coffee throughout the lot.

The planned openings will expand Bluestone Lane’s footprint in New York City; SoCal, including Los Angeles, Orange County and San Diego; and suburbs of New York, New Jersey and the greater DC area. Bluestone Lane also plans to open its first-ever cafés throughout Texas by the end of the year.

“Bluestone Lane built a loyal following in bustling cities, where our locals could enjoy their daily escape with premium coffee and a healthy meal,” Bluestone Lane Founder and CEO Nicholas Stone says. “Many locals have moved to the suburbs, but we also know that major cities like New York aren’t going away. So our expansion plan includes both. Today’s Bluestone Lane experience pairs contactless digital ordering without losing the personalized Australian hospitality that we are known for. We are excited to bring that experience to even more locations in 2021.”

With the success of a test pilot at Bluestone Lane’s Los Altos café, the brand also plans to expand a mobile-enabled drive-thru experience to additional suburban locations.
