As some of you might have heard, we have committed to opening a second Sump space in Nashville, Tennessee. For those of you who have supported us over the last four and a half years we thought we would share with you a little bit about how this came about.
1) Why Nashville?
It was a combination of opportunity knocking and us falling in deep like with the city and people of Nashville. St. Louis feels like an east coast city and Nashville feels like a west coast city. Both Marz and I have spent long stretches of time on both coasts and on a personal level the decision to build something in Nashville was like picking from the best of both coasts all within a four and half hour drive.
2) Are there significant changes people can expect for the new space?
Aside from different design elements, we hope to continue to deliver the same exceptional coffee-centric experience people have come to expect from us. Some changes for the Nashville location will include longer hours of operation as well as the possible inclusion of more pastry options as a result of being neighbors with Pastaria. We also plan to roast on-site as we do in St. Louis.
3) When will you open?
If we can get the wind at our back, we hope to be open as early as mid-October 2016. Apologies for not including photos, but the space is still in a gray box state. Keep following the blog for additional announcements.
