Peachy Corners Café is bringing its delicious coffee, bubble tea, and other tasty eats to Alpharetta.
According to lease intel, the Peachtree Corners eatery will open a second spot at 5815 Windward Pkwy. The location is part of Windward Crossing, a retail and office space that includes modern co-working places, restaurants, and wellness centers. Peachy Corners Café will occupy suite 210 on the second floor.
Owned by husband and wife pair, Long Tran and Susie Martono-Tran, Peachy Corners opened in January 2020. It currently operates at 6365 Spalding Dr D in the Spalding Center shopping center and business park.
In a statement to the Gwinnett Daily Post shortly after the café opened, Long Tran said he wants the community to view the space as more than just another coffee shop.
“We actually want people to gather and meet here,” Tran said. “We want it to be a community space. At a lot of other coffee shops, they want you in and out as fast as possible because space is limited. We want it to kinda feel like home.”
The cafe serves up coffee, bubble tea, smoothies, sandwiches, and sweets. Live outdoor music and special events are also offered to the community from time to time.
In a phone conversation with What Now Atlanta, Tran shared more details about the forthcoming Peachy Corners Alpharetta. While the name and drink offerings will remain the same, the new location with feature a full kitchen and provide a full menu with cuisine from a selection of rotating chefs.
“The first location is a pure coffee shop. We don’t really offer food and what we do offer is provided by local businesses,” Tran said. “The menu [at Alpharetta] will feature, for example, cuisine from a Korean chef on Mondays and Wednesdays and then cuisine from a Cuban chef on Tuesdays and Thursdays.”
He explained that the menu will vary depending on the chefs that are brought in. The unique idea is to use the new location as a platform to help others, specifically local chefs who lost their jobs at area restaurants due to COVID-19. At Peachy Corners Alpharetta, they will be able to come in, cook food, and see how customers like it with the hopes of doing well and then being able to open a business of their own.
“We’re hoping to open by end of November, beginning of December,” Tran said. But like with many other businesses, supply chain struggles have been hindering them from bringing in necessary equipment and supplies.
Whenever Peachy Corners opens its Alpharetta doors, it is sure to be warmly welcomed by the community as customers are known to drive from Alpharetta to the Spalding Center location for their coffee and boba fix. Many have been asking for the Trans to expand Peachy Corners their way.
“We hope everyone comes and checks out the second location,” Tran said. “But definitely check out the first location. We’re a family and community oriented coffee shop and are excited about expanding to Alpharetta.”
