The Well Coffeehouse finds new home, hopes to stay ...
The Well Coffeehouse, the non-profit coffee venue co-founded by Lipscomb professor Rob Touchstone, has made plans to move into a new home.
The coffeehouse will move to a new location at The Shops at Seven Springs, located off of I-65 on Old Hickory Boulevard in Brentwood.
“The Well Coffeehouse has officially signed a long-term lease in The Shops at Seven Springs,” shop co-founders Rob Touchstone and Chris Soper wrote in an open letter on The Well’s website. ”We’ll be inhabiting a new 2100 sq ft space in a brand new shopping center in one of the busiest parts of Nashville! Our new store will be located just east of I-65.”
“We are so blessed that we were offered the opportunity to lease this space and so grateful for your support as a customer.
“This location is strategically positioned to help us take our missional nonprofit coffeehouse to another level of being able to make money for the sake of the impoverished. And we look forward to continuing to serve Nashville what we believe is the best cup of coffee in town.”
The current shop, located on Richard Jones Road by campus, must be vacated by mid-March and is set to be demolished to make room for a new high-rise complex.
The new venue aims for a late April opening.
The Well also hopes to keep a location in Green Hills. There are tentative plans for The Well to transition into the now-vacant Pizza Perfect and Kebob space on Granny White Pike across from Lipscomb University. The shop must raise $75,000 in the next two weeks to do so.
“Lipscomb has the lease on the property and is offering a very favorable sublease to The Well,” the duo wrote. “We would very much love to inhabit this space and keep our presence in our current community. In order to do so we must raise $75,000 in startup costs in the next two weeks.”
If The Well is able to secure the funds necessary to claim the Lipscomb-leased location, there will be no lag time between the current venue being torn down and the new venue opening.
