A Strip District bakery and Shadyside coffee place launched a new coffee program at Pane è Pronto. The program features fresh drip coffee and espresso drinks like lattes, cappuccinos, macchiatos, and Americanos.

Fifth Season
Fifth Season, the vertical farming innovator and pre-made salad company based in Pittsburgh, is expanding. The company will build its second "robotic vertical farm" in Columbus, Ohio in order to meet the higher demand for its products at stores like Giant Eagle and Kroger. A press release says that investment in new hires will allow Fifth Season to manage its 600% projected sales growth of ready-to-eat salads in 2022, which will be fulfilled by the flagship farm in Braddock. The Fifth Season farm in Columbus will begin operations in 2023 and will be approximately three times the size of the Braddock farm.
