Grouchy John’s Coffee
The founders of Grouchy John’s, JJ and “Grouchy” John, first met years ago in college and have been friends ever since. Years after becoming friends, having built separate careers with which they weren’t entirely satisfied, the two buddies decided to try their hand at coffee—despite having no prior experience. Soon, through a series of accidental opportunities, Grouchy John’s had its first brick-and-mortar shop—quickly becoming a local favorite. Despite never having an official business plan and being fully self-financed, Grouchy John’s has cemented itself as a true local coffee shop. Be vocal and support them!
