Rising to the Challenge

In our early years, we operated and franchised specialty coffee cafés in the northeastern United States under the brand names of New World Coffee (New World) and Willoughby's Coffee and Tea (Willoughby's). In addition to coffee, we also served fresh, high quality gourmet foods and pastries. Our business strategy in those years was to be a franchisor and grow through acquisitions. With the acquisition of Manhattan Bagel Company, Inc. (Manhattan) in 1998 and Chesapeake Bagel Bakery (Chesapeake) in 1999, we became a significant franchisor of bagel restaurants and, to a lesser extent, of coffee cafés. In 2001, our strategy evolved to include company-operated restaurants as well as franchised and licensed locations as we completed the acquisition of substantially all of the assets (the Einstein Acquisition) of Einstein/Noah Bagel Corp. (ENBC) and its majority-owned subsidiary, Einstein/Noah Bagel Partners, L.P., which operated 2 brands: Einstein Bros.® Bagels (Einstein Bros.) and Noah's New York Bagels® (Noah's).

The Einstein Acquisition in 2001 was accomplished by issuing a substantial amount of short-term debt and mandatorily redeemable preferred equity, which have since been refinanced and restructured.
