The Hartselle Chamber of Commerce hosted a grand opening event for near six-month veteran to the downtown area on Thursday morning at 8:30 a.m.

Old Town Coffee Company ventured to Hartselle last fall. The owners Trace and Ginger Donahoo, wanted to bring new flavor to the downtown area.

Chamber President Danielle Gibson led a ribbon cutting ceremony that involved Mayor Randy Garrison, many chamber members and area business owners.

“At the time when we bought this location, there weren’t any coffee shops downtown and we wanted it to be a place for cultural expression,’ Trace said. “It’s been an awesome experience being here for the last six months and everyone has really welcomed us.”

Old Town Coffee Company often hosts singers and poetry artists who are local to share their talent within their business.

“Something we really enjoy is having local talent come in and utilize the stage and share their talents,” Trace said. “We have live music, poetry readings and other ways to involve the community within our business. Something else that is good about us is that we want people to just feel comfortable enough to come in and chill and be able to buy a cup of coffee and talk amongst themselves. Not just a cup of coffee, but also a good cup of coffee. That is really important to us.”

Old Town will have a live music night on April 22. Their hours are Tues.-Fri. from 6:30 a.m.- 4:30 p.m. and Saturday 8 a.m.-9 p.m.
