Coffee Culture’s corporate headquarters in Ontario sent its vice president of operations, Perry Ouzounis and district manager, Chris Dale, to Ellicottville in a big hurry last week to get the coffee shop back open after the franchisee suddenly closed the shop.
As of Monday morning (April 27) at 6 a.m., the shop was up and running and back to serving its delicious coffee and menu items.
“As a brand, and a community partner, we will offer a level of customer service that can’t be matched, due to excellence in training and development,” said Ouzounis.
“New furniture will be in place soon, and a brand new fire pit is being installed ASAP by local contractors,” according to Ouzounis. “We’re also restaining the exterior wordwork, and completely repainting the interior. We’re reupholstering all of the booth cushions, and replacing some of the food service equipment. He emphasized that, while it may take a few weeks, it will be worth the wait.
“We want to be a part of the local fabric,” said Ouzounis. “Local artists interested in displaying and potentially selling their work are encouraged to contact me at our Mississauga Ontario office, or talk to Stephen Lee,, manager of the Ellicottville location.”
Coffee Culture is also searching for the right mix of associates, and anyone interested is encouraged to apply in person – see Stephen for an application.
