NAPPANEE — The original Coppes factory buildings, long empty now, have new life as two businesses recently opened in part of the building under rehabilitation by John Mast Construction.
Main Street Coffee has a drive-through location at the site that opens at 4:30 a.m. A grand opening celebration was took place recently, with a free cup of coffee to all who visited the location, either drive-thru or walk-in. The original Main Street Coffee location is on the corner of Main and Market, another Nappanee historical building, long home to the B&B; restaurant.
Employee Mindy Yoder explained the new location’s hours are 4:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday and 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays.
Bakery & Treat Shoppe
Inside the recently renovated part of the building a new bakery opened three weeks ago. Offering Amish baked goods, including bread, cookies, pies, cinnamon rolls and more, the wide-open area utilizes the Dutch Maid Hoosier cabinets originally made on the site to display some of the products.
Some varieties of pies include: blueberry, peach, pecan, custard, Bob Andy, butterscotch and more. Cookies offered include buttermilk, chocolate crinkles, molasses and whoopee pies in a variety of flavors.
Manager Marilyn Hochstetler said suggestions are welcome and special orders are taken in advance. Items are baked fresh daily, but those who want a specific item should call ahead. Hours are Tuesday through Friday 4:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Saturdays from 6 a.m. until 2 p.m.
The new neighboring businesses are located at 401 E. Market St.
