Quick. Can you name all five locations for Water Street Coffee Joint
Well, it's kind of a trick question — the fifth location is scheduled to open late this month, July 2017.
Water Coffee Street's newest location will be 2603 Sprinkle Road, just off I-94. The twist is that it is a drive-thru only location, perhaps in keeping with its just off the highway location.
"There is a lot of potential for growth and possibilities in this area and I wanted to be part of it," says owner, Mark Smutek. "We were able to find a small lot, which is hard to come by, and I believe it is a great place to try something new and unexpected in Kalamazoo."
Water Street's fifth location will feature dual lane ordering, expansive windows to display their fresh, handmade food, as well as unique and inviting architecture and landscaping details. The new location will provide the full menu you would expect to see at any other Water Street Coffee Joint -- house-roasted coffee, fresh sandwiches, desserts, and more.
The opening date has not yet been announced and Water Street encourages patrons to keep an eye on its Facebook page
During opening week, baristas will be handing out a free travel mug with a free cup of coffee inside to the first five customers each morning. And for the first month only, every 20th car that comes through will receive their coffee, smoothie, or beverage of choice free.
Water Street Coffee Joint, Inc. is locally owned and has been operating cafes in the Kalamazoo and Portage area since 1993. All of their coffees are roasted in-house, in small batches and their food is handmade daily with local produce. The company also distributes wholesale coffee and services all over the state of Michigan.
