Updated: When will Echo Coffee open?
March 17, 2010
As you can see here, construction is moving right along for Echo Coffee at 68th Street & Thomas. All of the plumbing, electrical, mechanical (AC) rough-ins are complete. Drywall has been hung, and by the end of the weekend, tape and texture will be done.
Next week we will paint, followed by cabinets, counters, and finish trim for electrical and plumbing.
The contractors are really working hard to get this complete in short order, and I visit nearly every day to deal with any potential problems and answer questions before those questions become issues.
Because Echo Coffee is sponsoring RE BarCamp Phoenix on April 9th, that is the date all of the contractors are working toward to enable us to support that event.
As is common, we will have a soft opening, followed up a week or two later with a grand opening, once we feel all of the processes are suitable for high volume.
So my current answer to when is April 9th, though April 10th will probably be the first “doors open” day.
