A popular downtown Frankenmuth coffeehouse is opening a new location in Caro with plans to expand area dining options, hours, and jobs.
The Harvest Coffeehouse & Deli will replace Intermission Deli at 157 N. State St.
The transition will happen over the course of the next few weeks, said Shannon Brown, owner of Frankenmuth-based Harvest Coffeehouse & Beanery, who presented her plan to the Tuscola County Economic Development Corp. (TCEDC) Tuesday. The goal is to not have the storefront closed for any length of time.
Customers can expect to see increased coffee, coffee-based drinks, and smoothie offerings, a refined menu to include sandwiches and other items such as hummus (homemade), along with increased hours (yet to be determined).
Brown said as she learns more about Caro customers’ preferences, the menu and other offerings are subject to change. During Tuesday’s EDC meeting, she fully acknowledged the differences she will face operating in Caro versus Frankenmuth.
“I’m very excited about Caro,” Brown said. “I think there’s so much opportunity here.
“Looking at the current Intermission Deli…there are a lot of things we saw immediately right away that can increase traffic.” (Read more)
