New York Citys Roasting Plant to Open First Shop Outside NYC in Downtown Detroit

Detroit, MI (PRWEB) May 09, 2012

Roasting Plant, a New York-based company that provides a personalized experience for coffee lovers with its unique roasting technology, today announced it will expand its footprint and open its first coffee shop outside of New York City in the heart of downtown Detroit.

The company will bring its just-roasted, brewed-by-the-cup coffee to the growing number of people working in downtown Detroits burgeoning hub of technology and creative companies. The store will open for business this fall in the First National Building, located at 660 Woodward, and owned by Rock Ventures LLC, the umbrella entity formed to provide operational coordination, guidance, and integration of Dan Gilberts portfolio of companies, investments and real estate.

Roasting Plants first floor retail location, situated on the foot of Campus Martius Park, will feature onsite roasting and both indoor and outdoor seating.

We are very excited to introduce the Roasting Plant experience to other parts of the country, so we jumped at the chance to open our first non-New York shop in the heart of resurging downtown Detroit, said Elizabeth Rose of Roasting Plant, a former Detroiter who used to run the halls of the First National Building as a child.

I would occasionally come to work with my father when he had an office in the First National, so when the opportunity to return to Detroit and be located in that building presented itself, I could not pass it up, said Rose. I love what is happening in Detroit — I cant imagine not being a part of it.

The lease deal was brokered by Bedrock Real Estate Services LLC, Rock Ventures full service property management firm.

Roasting Plants choice to come to downtown Detroit speaks to the national reputation were developing as a place to see and be seen, said Matt Cullen, President and CEO of Rock Ventures. Detroit offers a growing critical mass of young people who are looking for more retail, dining and entertainment options, as well as a great cup of coffee. Were excited that this unique coffee shop sees the opportunity here and is seizing it.

Roasting Plants Detroit shop will feature a warm, modern, and bright space that highlights the patented Roasting Plant Javabot system. At Roasting Plant, customers choose from the 11 daily choices of coffee beans, and then watch the Javabot system create their perfect drink on demand.

The Roasting Plant experience was built by founder Mike Caswell, whose love of coffee and appreciation of the coffee bar experience was developed when he worked as a part-time barista in his college days, and subsequently as the Director of Profit Improvement at Starbucks in Seattle. Roasting Plant is the culmination of his engineering, systems, and coffee industry expertise.
