Help keep great coffee at
Blue Spruce Coffee now a
Third Street Center Enterprise
If you have been in the coffee shop lately, you have probably heard that a transition is underway. Starting thismonth, instead of a Third Street Center tenant and project of the Mid Valley Church, Blue Spruce will now be operated as a self-supporting enterprise of the Third Street Center.
Most things relating to the Blue Spruce will remain the same:
- Great responsibly grown and sourced coffee roasted by Lance Norton (Blue Spruce Roasters)
- Same space supported by Mid Valley Church (services have moved to Wednesday nights in the Calaway Room).
- Cali, Landon, and Lance sharing barista duties M-F 8am to 12noon.
- Coffee, Tea, and snacks available for meetings at the Third Street Center.
The main change is Third Street Center will become the owner of the shop and manage the finances of the business to free up Lance for his main work – ministry. Lance will still run the shop, but he won’t need do everything to keep the shop open.
This is where you come in. To enable Blue Spruce to continue operating at Third Street, we are creating a Blue Spruce subscription option. By subscribing and paying $5 or $10/month (the price of one or two fancy coffee drinks a month), you will help make Blue Spruce a permanent part of the Third Street Center. Our goal to reach 50 subscribers. We are starting with tenants because you know best the value Blue Spruce has brought to the building.
By becoming a Blue Spruce Subscriber, you get 5-10% off all purchases in the shop. Your discount depends on your subscription level.
Most of your subscription (90-95%) is also tax-deductible since Blue Spruce is now owned by Third Street Center – a 501c3 nonprofit corporation – so your coffee drinking can help build a better world while it wakes you up during the day.
We are also exploring ways for subscribers to access the coffee shop after hours for self-service drip coffee, cold drinks, and snacks – another bonus coming in the future.
We have additional ideas, but we need your help first to keep the current shop open for all to enjoy.
