HOLLAND, Mich. - The average American consumes between two and three cups of coffee each day. Those people help fuel a booming coffee industry, which includes coffee shop businesses. Still, the owner of 205 Coffee Bar in Holland has recognized an area for additional growth.
"Most people stop drinking coffee around 3 o'clock in the afternoon," says Luke Petro, the shop's manager. "But, people still like to come in for meetings or to work on projects."
Last month the owners decided to acquire a liquor license to expand the menu, which now includes alcohol. Currently, alcoholic drinks include mostly beer and some cocktails. However, Petro says there is possibility more drinks could be added in the future.
205 Coffee Bar is located at 205 E. Columbia Avenue. The business has also expanded its Monday through Friday hours to stay open until 8 p.m.
