WELCOME BACK TO BUSINESSES OPENING THIS WEEK...WISHING YOU THE BEST IN THIS NEW REALITY!
BERKINS BLEND RAMPS UP GRAB AND GO MENU, CATERING
As businesses attempt to get back to some sense of normalcy this week, we are highlighting one of our faves. Berkins Blend is the neighborhood coffee shop. Owners, Doug and Andrea, took a courageous leap of faith when they opened their shop on Hebron Avenue. They celebrate five years this June! You know we love a from-the-ground-up story and this one is impressive. After both were laid off from their jobs, they decided to venture into the coffee business. What they've created is not just a place to get your morning coffee, but a gathering spot for friends, business people, and family members. It's the place where you catch up with old friends, make meaningful connections, and forge deep relationships. Doug and Andrea are incredibly supportive of not just other local businesses, but ALL of the people they encounter in town. As they move toward their new reality, they're revamping their menus to include more grab-and-go items. But, also, did you know they CATER out of their second location in Hartford, Berkins on Oak?!! They have so many delicious options. Click HERE to see their new menu or pop in for a coffee anytime...THEY. ARE.OPEN!
