Aegis Brands buying Ottawa chain Bridgehead Coffee for $9.5 million

MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — Aegis Brands Inc. says it has agreed to buy Ottawa-based Bridgehead Coffee in a $9.5-million deal.

It says the acquisition is the first since it announced last month a new operating structure and strategy under the name Aegis Brands.

Steven Pelton, CEO of Aegis Brands, says Bridgehead has strong community roots and significant growth potential.

The Ottawa chain has 19 locations, all corporate-owned, and Aegis says they will continue to operate under the Bridgehead name.
