Mike Zimmerman, CEO of ROC Ventures, issued this statement on the opening of the new shop:

“The ultimate goal of a place like Blend is to facilitate community by curating a food and beverage menu with the process of placemaking. Becoming the local coffee shop and cocktail lounge will bring people together and create meaningful collisions."

Operators of the shop say they will spend the first months open concentrating on a convenient to-go operation for coffee -- and offer a limited capacity for its cocktail lounge.
