“We feel we bring best-in-class experience when it comes to specialty coffee,” For Five Coffee cofounder Stefanos Vouvoudakis, said in the release. “We believe that this partnership is the next step in progressing both our companies’ vision of hospitality experiences within the corporate environment.”

Carr Properties CEO Oliver Carr said in a prepared statement the partnership “will allow us to continue to offer our customers quality food and beverage options.”

A For Five Coffee spokesman did not return Commercial Observers request for comment regarding the lease terms and asking rent. It’s unclear if brokers were involved in the deal.

The locations will offer For Five Coffee’s speciality caffeinated drinks as well as “signature food options” for breakfast and lunch from Chef Scheyla Acosta, “in a relaxing atmosphere ideal for those looking to dine in,” per the release. For Five Coffee has plans to open other outposts in New York, Los Angeles, D.C., Virginia and Boston.
