The Free Times: Indah Coffee Co. to Open Cottontown Shop, Roastery
By Eva Moore Feb 6, 2017
Indah Coffee Co. will be one of two tenants in a refurbished building in historic Cottontown, the developer announced today.
Cason Development Group is redeveloping 2238 Sumter St., which housed Dunn Electric Co. from 1945 until 2000.
The space will house a coffee shop and retail location of Indah Coffee, a local roaster well known to devotees of Soda City Market. The press release cites “a coffee café, a beer and wine bar, a cupping or coffee sipping/tasting room, conference and meeting spaces, and a roaster space unlike any other in town.”
The refurbished building will also host a second location of Circa Barber Shop.
The new project is right around the corner from restaurant The War Mouth — also a Cason project.
The Cottontown area is in the midst of a development boom, with several businesses slated for the strip of Main Street north of Elmwood — brewery Cotton Town Brew Lab, barbecue and grocery Revival — and several already open, including Vino Garage, Lamb’s Bread Vegan Cafe and Sweet Temptations Bakery.
And there could be more to come, per Frank Cason: “An additional retail space will be available in an attached space at the rear of [2238 Sumter St.]. The former warehouse and loading dock could be configured for an outdoor patio and maybe a small music venue.”
Cason has also bought nearby 2222 Sumter St. for other to-be-determined purposes.
