Here's Blue Bottle CEO James Freeman on expansion, collaboration, and the recent $25.75 million the company raised in funding. On possibly opening in Japan: "I think there are a lot interesting opportunities there, especially in Tokyo ... If we do open in Japan, I don't want it to be a joint venture. I want to spend our own money and use our own gear and employees." [GS]
