“We solely roasted coffee for a couple of years, but realized quickly that we were missing the connection to people that we wanted to have – that people element that’s so crucial in the coffee culture. We were wholesaling successfully across the country, but wanted stronger ties to this community. Having this physical space where people can come in and interact and build relationships – it’s what keeps us going.

… We got to the point when we were trying to decide if this space was indeed where we wanted to be. It was a very intimidating decision to make, and we used the Commercial Space Advisory Team to validate our plans and make sure we were considering every angle possible. They went through numbers with us and validated that we were on the right track, which gave us the encouragement to move forward.

We would absolutely recommend that service to other local businesses. Being an entrepreneur can be very isolating – so having this outside support and encouragement has been great.”
