A downtown Hellertown coffee shop that’s only been in business for about seven months will close for good after Sunday, Oct. 13, according to a post on the business’s Facebook page.
The Coffee Shop Company at 650 Main Street is closing its Hellertown location, but the business will continue on in other forms, the post indicated.
“The Coffee Shop Company is still growing and reaching new goals in more areas, we invite you to stay tuned,” it said. “We will have presence in various venues throughout the Lehigh Valley, Pa., so we can keep bringing you high quality items and the highest quality of customer service you all deserve.”
It was recently announced in a Morning Call story that the Coffee Shop Company would be opening an outpost inside the FreeFall Trampoline Park in Bethlehem Township.
In that story, co-owner Rogelio Castillo of Bethlehem touted new offerings such as fresh-squeezed saffron lemonade as well as specialty drinks such as kombucha, cold brew coffee and tea, which have been draws for its Hellertown location, which also sells food.
Another partnership between the Coffee Shop and a local business recently highlighted in a Morning Call article is with a salon that opened last month in an adjacent storefront.
Castillo told the newspaper he would be offering specialty beverage delivery service to customers at Halo Hair & Beauty, which is now open at 648 Main St., Hellertown.
Owner Kristin Quiles told the Morning Call that the coffee shop’s location next door played a part in her decision to open Halo Hair & Beauty in that particular spot.
“Please stop by during the next few days to enjoy your favorite latte, avocado toast, waffle tower and all the other favorites that have earned us countless five star reviews and new opportunities of expansion,” the Facebook post published Thursday by the Coffee Shop said. “Do not hesitate to reach out to us to know more about our upcoming locations, catering services and our soon to launch supply/distribution services for other restaurants, cafes and private clients.”
Several individuals expressed disappointment in the news of the closing in comments on the post.
“That is really sad news for our town,” wrote AnneMarie Hamant. “Nothing good seems to last here in Hellertown.”
“What a loss for our community,” said Ashley Kametz. “Best wishes on future endeavors!”
