Saxbys readies new Center City store

Saxbys Coffee Worldwide LLC of Conshohocken says it's opening a new store at Liberty Place (16th and Chestnut sts., Center City) on Monday morning. That's just 19 days after filing for bankruptcy reorganization, in what president Nick Bayer says is an effort to consolidate lawsuits by investors in the company's previous, Atlanta-based incarnation. Center City developer Joseph Grasso bought the chain and moved it here in 2007.

It's the 47th U.S. Saxbys, Bayer told me. I noted that's about 10 more than are listed on Saxbys' Web site. He says they're having it "re-done" to reflect units opened since Saxbys acquired the former Bucks County Coffee Co.
