Hi all, and welcome to the brand spankin’ new Bully Brew Blog!!
All of us here at the coffee shop are excited to have this new channel to get in touch and reach all of you with updates on the shop and many stories that surround coffee and other topics.
For our first post we thought it pretty appropriate to talk about the history of Bully Brew and all of the exciting steps we have taken in the years of our existence.
It all started…..
In May of 2013 when owners, Sandi and Shane Luck, decided to begin a new adventure and transform their current coffee shop at Valley Eldercare into the very first “Bully Brew Coffee Shop”.
After a couple of years they wanted to expand and bring the Bully Brew love to the Columbia Mall. This dream became a reality and the mall location was officially opened for business in May of 2015.
Our most recent adventure in Grand Forks was the purchase of “The Coffee Company” in May of this year which has now been renamed to “Bully Brew Coffee Company and Roasters”. We are so excited to be the owners of this iconic coffee shop in Grand Forks and are excited to be continuing the in-house bean roasting. We look forward to continuing to be the favorite place for people to gather to study, enjoy a cup of coffee with a friend, or host a meeting.
Oh, and JUST when you thought we were done growing, Bully Brew had what might be it’s most exciting expansion yet just this summer in July. Bully Brew made the move South and officially opened their first coffee shop in Fargo!!
This new location is proving to be a great move for Bully Brew and we can’t wait to see where the year 2017 takes us in our growth 🙂
For addresses of each location as well as how to contact each shop by phone and see the hours of operation please visit our website!
Many of you may be wondering how we came to the idea of naming our beloved shops Bully Brew….
Above you will see a sweet photo of two pretty special Bulldogs, Elvis and Izzie. They belong to owners Sandi and Shane and these doggies were the brains behind the whole operation 🙂 We encourage you to stop by any of our locations and be on the look out for Elvis and Izzie….they make a lot of trips to the shops to say hi and sign autographs for all of their adoring fans. If you’re really lucky they may even allow you to snap a photo with them!
Like many of you, our pets are more than pets, they are a part of our family. At Bully Brew, we believe that a cup of coffee and your dog (or any other pet) can cure anything that ails you!
Our official mission at Bully Brew is:
To enrich as many lives as we can by serving Great Coffee and Great Food with a Smile!
That is our mission and our promise to you: Great Coffee AND Great Food. When you stop in to any of the Bully Brew locations in Grand Forks or Fargo you will find something for everyone.
Our coffee drinks are each made with love and attention and we are always excited to offer a menu of seasonal drinks. Since we are in the fall season (arguably the best season of the year!) we have a tasty selection of pumpkin and apple drinks to satisfy your fall cravings. Caramel Apple Cider and Pumpkin Chai…just to name a few!!
When we started Bully Brew we didn’t only want to offer the best coffee drinks in town but also the best food and sweet treats. In each of our locations you can find delicious homemade sandwiches (each named after some of our favorite dogs, OF COURSE!) that we can make hot on the panini press for you and served with your choice of side (pasta salad, potato salad, chips, etc.)
You can also enjoy a complete breakfast at Bully Brew…if you’re coming in the door to grab a coffee make sure to check out our selection of bagels, pastries, and breakfast breads as well as delicious oatmeal to start your day off right.
If you’re like me (this is Jen by the way, one of the Bully Brew Blog writers!!) what interests you the most is the sweet treats. You can find a variety of cookies, bars, and our world-famous macarons at our locations to satisfy your small (or really BIG) sweet tooth 🙂
You can find our full and complete menu, including a more detailed description of our drinks and sandwiches, on our website: bullybrewcoffeehouse.com
We are excited to share all of the plans we have for you for the blog in the coming weeks. We will be writing about a variety of topics and trends so if you have any suggestions for us or anything you’d really like to see a post about please leave a comment and we will be sure to make it happen!
With love and coffee,
