Savannah-based PERC Coffee Roasters is aiming to debut its forthcoming East Lake coffee shop in early-August, the company Wednesday announced in a press release. It will be PERC’s first Atlanta shop.
Located at the corner of Hosea Williams and 2nd Avenue, at 2380 Hosea Williams Drive NE, Unit B, PERC will be positioned to serve a full coffee menu and house-made food options.
“I grew up in Atlanta so it feels like home to me,” Philip Brown, owner of PERC Coffee, said in the release. “I’m thankful for the team that has come together to make this happen.”
Longtime PERC friend, partner, and joint CEO, Alan Fischer, will be overseeing the Atlanta operations. Heading up the awesome team will be Amber Foreman, who traveled back to Atlanta from Los Angeles to be the General Manager and Atlanta-based bread magician, Sarah Dodge (Bread Is Good), who will be heading up the curated food program. PERC is super excited and grateful to be part of Atlanta’s vibrant coffee scene.
Due to the ongoing novel coronavirus outbreak, the shop will begin by providing walk-up window service only and will open its doors to inside service as the pandemic “subsides.”
“We plan to operate as window service only with socially distant patio seating,” Foreman said. “We want to do everything we can to keep our staff and community safe, including creating a high standard of cleanliness and social responsibility. Now more than ever, I think it is important for people to take part in the daily ritual of enjoying good food and coffee, and we are so stoked to be a part of creating this for our community.”
PERC Coffee began roasting and providing craft coffee to the heart of Savannah in 2010 and has since grown to provide coffee to many coffee shops and grocery stores, including all of the Whole Foods Markets in the Southeast region.
