Acquired: Swell Cafe
Over in Mission Beach, the Patio Restaurant Group (PRG) acquired sustainable coffee outpost Swell Café. This month, it will start roasting different blends with partners James Coffee Company. Some of those custom roasts, of course, will go to the Patio’s existing and planned locations—now including Pacific Beach, Mission Hills, and Liberty Station. With PRG’s help, Swell plans to open more outlets and launch a large-scale roasting facility for a wholesale operation.
