Roasters Coffee new stand is located on the corner of W. Van Giesen Street and 40th Avenue in West Richland.
WEST RICHLAND, WA - A locally owned and operated coffee company continues to compete with the big names with the opening of fifth location in West Richland on Thursday.
Roasters Coffee new stand is located on the corner of W. Van Giesen Street and 40th Avenue. The stand used to belong to Crazy Monkey coffee until the owners felt it was time to sell, but only to a local company.
To celebrate the opening, 16-ounce drinks are only $1 from open (5:30 a.m.) to close (6:00 p.m.).
"A lot of people don't know that we're local, they think that we're a chain of some sort," says owner Wes Heyden. "When people realize that we're local, we're really one of the only local shops other than Barracuda and the local Sharehouse. Everybody else is corporate and once you realize that, you begin to really love on people."
Heyden also says that a new location is in the works for Richland with a projected summer opening, and another in south Kennewick by the end of 2014.
