Congratulations to Albert Plummer, Vicki White and Joann Dipasquale on the opening of Gimme Java Coffee at 3427 Lee Road in Shaker Heights, Ohio.
After running a bakery in New Jersey for 10 years, Albert Plummer decided it was time to return to Ohio. He joined with sister Vicki White and fiancée Joann Dipasquale to create a neighborhood coffee house for Shaker Heights. They recently opened Gimme Java Coffee after completing our Seven Steps to Success coffee franchise alternative program, which included comprehensive training in running their coffee house.
Gimme Java opened after extensive renovations to a space on the corner of Lee Rd and Van Aken Blvd, just steps from the Shaker Heights library, community center, police station, metro line and city offices.
“Gimme Java’s mission is to provide an upscale coffee shop experience to patrons who are looking for something a bit more comfortable and ‘homey,’ as opposed to the corporate atmosphere of other coffee houses,” Plummer said.
Since 1991, Crimson Cup Coffee & Tea has hand-roasted great-tasting specialty coffee in Columbus, Ohio. We’ve also taught more than 250 independent business owners how to open a coffee shop through our coffee shop franchise alternative program.
