Up until now, all Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf privately owned franchise stores (as opposed to corporate owned stores which are the majority of the CBTL stores) were mandated to maintain a Kosher food program. Corporate CBTL has recently changed their protocol for these few privately owned franchise stores, and are now allowing them to opt out of their kosher food program if they wish to do so. The following privately owned CBTL franchise stores that have chosen to opt OUT and no longer be part of the kosher program, and no longer bear a Kosher LA Teuda/certificate are:
-USC Roland Building -USC Cinema -LAX Terminal 1 -LAX Tom Bradley International ARRIVALS -Paramount Studios -Santa Barbara Airport -LAX Terminal 5 will opt out as of May, 2017
All other stores which have been certified as Kosher remain so, however we always urge the customer to check for a Kosher LA Teuda/certificate when they visit the CBTL store.
