GEORGETOWN, KY – JULY 24, 2019 – A Lexington-based coffee shop has expanded to Georgetown and is set for Grand Opening ceremonies on Friday, July 26, 2019. These festivities will include a ribbon cutting with the Georgetown/Scott County Chamber of Commerce at 10 a.m., as well as other events throughout the day.

 

A Cup of Common Wealth is a locally-owned small business that started in Lexington, KY on July 1, 2013. The company is mission-based with three pillars: Embrace Community. Serve Others. Create Culture.

 

“Those words are ones we’ll take with us to each piece of the company we open, and it’s not just something we paint on the wall,” said founder and owner Salvador Sanchez. “We base every decision we make as a company on this mission statement and it’s how we choose to approach business and life.”

 

A Cup of Common Wealth Georgetown occupies the storefront on the corner of Main and Broadway in downtown Georgetown - the previous home of a Subway restaurant. The renovations began in early June and the shop opened at the end of the month as final touches were added. Throughout July, the shop was open to the public, serving a variety of coffee- and non-coffee-based drinks, as well as a sandwich menu to cater to the downtown population.

 

“The biggest difference between this location and the one in Lexington is the menu,” said Shop Supervisor Jake Bryant. “Here we are much more like a cafe than just a coffee shop.”

 

A Cup of Common Wealth Georgetown joins the company’s existing community of businesses based in Lexington, including Magic Beans Coffee Roasters - which the company acquired in January of 2016 - and Chocolate Holler, which opened in January of 2017.

 

Magic Beans Coffee Roasters serves wholesale and subscription customers throughout Kentucky and beyond, as well as provides the majority of the coffee used at each of the three storefront locations. Chocolate Holler is a coffee and chocolate shop, offering a full-service coffee and espresso bar, but focusing on specialty chocolate drinks and craft chocolate bars from companies around the country.

 

“We’re excited to be joining the Georgetown community,” Bryant said. “It’s an amazing new adventure for us and we’ve already loved every minute of being here.”

 

A Cup of Common Wealth Georgetown’s current hours are: Monday-Friday, 7 a.m. - 6 p.m., Saturday 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. The shop is currently closed on Sundays, but will be open 12-5 p.m. starting Sunday, August 4.
