When a plan comes together
Our story began on March 29, 2016 the day our first grand baby was born. Of course, on that day you could not of told us that we would be opening a coffee shop café in Jay. We are lucky grandparents as we get to spend a lot of time with our little Opie. Immediately I started looking for an alternative to working in our medical practice. I didn’t want to miss a single moment with him.
Jay is a small tight knit community and my husband has worked here for 18 years. We have grown to love this community and the people that live here. With Opie growing so fast, we wanted to do something for him as well as the other children in the community. Where to start? That's a question that lead us down a winding road. Then one day while we were sitting at our favorite coffee shop, we started talking about how we wished we had one in Jay. That conversation quickly became the catalyst for Opie’s Kool Stop Coffee Shop Café. Our dream was to find a way to have a place where families could come and not worry about their children being children. With the wheels turning in my head faster than I could put it on paper, the idea became a small part of a much bigger picture.
With my love for cooking, coffee and children on the brink of becoming a reality, a plan was formed. We are going to show free movies to the community, help clean up our downtown area, host festivals and maybe one day turn Jay into the Hallmark Town we always believed it could be. How does all of this fit together you ask? Well, Opie’s Coffee Shop Café will bring a family friendly environment with healthy and delicious food choices while giving the kids a fun place to be. Don’t forget that we also serve some great coffee, delicious milkshakes and much more. As we have grown, our nonprofit O.P.I.E. Inc. (Operation Preserve Improve Enrich) was born and Opie’s Kool Stop & Indoor Amusement was created. We love seeing our customers everyday and most are like family. Opie loves to greet them, although usually with chocolate on his face from a doughnut or whatever else he has managed to get into. The most important thing for all of us at Opie's is making sure that everyone that leaves our place, does so with a smile on their face. That's what makes it all worth it. We hope to see you soon!
