We moved here from Escondido, CA (just north of San Diego) on December 26, 2019. Once we got through our first winter here...and decided to stay LOL, Kim opened up a storefront for a healing crystal, spiritual store that she formerly had online. My 18 year-old son was so bored, because there was nothing to do for someone his age, I was a Realtor in San Diego, I got my license out here, but knew NO ONE, there was no “Coffee” Coffee in town , so we decided what better way to meet people than to open up a coffeehouse.
We decided to make it living room “style”. We thought it would be so cool to make it look like Central Perk. We made one post about it on social media and it Exploded. Radio and TV stations started talking about it all over the country! A week later, Marcus Theaters contacted us about an auction they were holding to benefit Children’s Wisconsin in which they were auctioning off one of THE Orange Couches from Warner Bros. We asked them if we could do a fundraiser to see if we could raise enough money to buy it for the coffeehouse and WE DID IT! We got the couch and were able to raise over $11,000 for Children’s Wisconsin.
We are now going to be a FULL BLOWN Friends Themed Coffeehouse in little ole Twin Lakes, Wisconsin with live music, trivia nights, and a liquor license to make it even more interesting! Our Grand Opening is February 20, 2020. We can’t believe the amazing journey that this coffeehouse has taken us on. We are so blessed to have had such a great bunch of people that LOVE “Friends” come on the journey with us through social media! We look forward to meeting all of you.
