We tried to keep it a secret for as long as humanly possible, but we are bursting at the seams with excitement to share our big news with whoopie pie lovers everywhere!
So here it is...
We are joining forces with two other local Maine businesses to open the first ever coffee bar and whoopie pie shop all rolled up in one! That's right, we've outgrown our beloved shared kitchen space at Fork Food Lab in Portland, Maine, and will be moving into our new diggs sometime early this year.
Our fantastic friends bringing the best ever coffee and coffee beans to the table are none other than White Cap Coffee and Rwanda Bean: two local businesses who care deeply about making a great cup of coffee through a production chain that gives back to its farmers and their communities. Not only do these guys have huge heart, but trust us, they make one smooth, tasty cup of joe!
Our super cool coffee and whoopie pie cafe collaboration is already under construction at 185 Cottage Road in South Portland, Maine, which locals may recognize as the old Cherished Possessions building - right by the iconic Red's Dairy Freeze and unforgettably delicious Otto Pizza. The space boasts a total of 5,300 square feet, which will encompass a whoopie pie bakery and coffee bean roasting with a retail shop in the front.
We'll keep you posted with updates about our new space and when to expect the grand opening here on our blog and on social media, but you can also sign up for our newsletter at bit.ly/capewhoopies to ensure an invite!
