North Aurora, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--For coffee lovers in the Chicagoland area, Dunn Bros Coffee is bringing a new flavor to the coffee scene as it opens its doors on Friday, September 12 at 5:30 a.m. Located at 241 Genesis Drive, North Aurora, IL, across from the North Aurora Auto Mall on Orchard Road, the new coffee shop will host a series of Grand Opening activities and promotions throughout the opening weekend of September 12-14.
When doors open to the public, guests will receive free brewed coffee, $1.00 specialty beverages, and $3.00 half-pounds of freshly roasted coffee beans. Guests will also be able to load $10 onto a RoastmasterRewards loyalty card and receive a voucher for a free beverage of choice or a free half-pound of beans to use at their next visit.
A coffee expert will be stationed at the in-store roaster during the Grand Opening celebration to teach guests about roasting, help them select coffee beans, and answer questions about the coffees that will be offered. Committed to freshness and flavor, Dunn Bros Coffee provides guests with exceptional coffee –from coffee farm to coffee cup. "The most unique aspect of our store is the in-house coffee roaster where all of our beans will be roasted fresh every day," says Heidi Olivares, co-owner of the North Aurora Dunn Bros Coffee.
This Dunn Bros Coffee location is the first to open in Illinois. In addition to the signature coffee roaster, the new shop will feature outdoor patio seating, a convenient drive-thru for fresh coffee on the go, free wireless Internet access, and computer terminals for guests to use while they visit. Dunn Bros Coffee of North Aurora offers a warm and inviting atmosphere that provides a convenient place for people to work, meet, relax and enjoy the aroma of fresh-roasted coffee.
Heidi and Armando Olivares met while Heidi was on tour with a ballet company in South America. They decided to move back to the United States and eventually open a Dunn Bros Coffee. "Growing up in Brazil has given me a deep appreciation for quality coffee beans. Dunn Bros Coffee was the best coffee I had tasted since moving to the U.S.," says Armando Olivares.
Dunn Bros Coffee of North Aurora is also owned by Jim Coursolle, founder of Armada Media. "Being entrepreneurs for the last 46 years, it's important to my wife, Diane, and I to see my daughter and son-in-law operate several Dunn Bros Coffee locations," Jim says about Heidi and Armando.
Founded in 1987, Dunn Bros Coffee has successfully proven to its guests and competitors why fresh-roasted coffee is the ideal. This award-winning coffee franchise has over 90 locations across the nation and was founded on the principle that daily, on-site coffee roasting delivers more flavorful coffee and the freshest coffee beans. Each location has a unique and authentic coffeehouse atmosphere.
