Bridgehead’s revenues continued to perk up in the second quarter as the Ottawa-based coffee retailer posted sales gains of more than 25 per cent compared with a year earlier.

In financial filings this week, parent company Aegis Brands said Bridgehead posted revenues of $4.07 million for the three-month period ending June 25, up from $3.2 million the previous year.

The chain said it has reopened all of its coffeehouses in the National Capital Region and recently launched a new licensed location at Ottawa International Airport. Overall, coffeehouse sales rose 29 per cent year-over-year to more than $3.6 million in the second quarter, while same-store sales increased 17 per cent in the same period.
