Pearl Cup to Open a Location in Richardson!

We have news that we are VERY excited about!  Below is our latest press release, and we think you’ll be quite pleased.


Pearl Cup Coffee to open in Richardson Location 

Richardson, Tuesday, June 26th, 2012 — Beloved specialty coffee shop, Pearl Cup Coffee, has announced it’s newest location at 2701 Custer Pkwy, Suite 917 in the II Creeks shopping center in Richardson. The II Creeks shopping center is a neighborhood supported location and home of Richardson Community Theatre, as well as wonderful restaurants and fitness centric businesses. In addition to their award winning coffee, the location will also sell beer and wine, and their expansive patio will be the centerpiece. The location is set to open late August/early September.

Founded in 2007 by Carlene Saelg and Rita Davis, the specialty coffee shop seeks to provide the most ethically sourced coffee in a space that reflects their sustainable commitment to green building practices. II Creeks is on the corner of Custer Parkway and Valley Glenn Drive, less than a mile from the University of Texas at Dallas.

“We are so excited to have found such a wonderful neighborhood in Richardson,” said Saelg. “II Creeks provides the perfect community feel that we’ve been looking for and that resonates with our brand. Everything about this location makes me joyful.”

“The demand for Pearl Cup Coffee to head north has been tremendous since our beginning and I am so excited to have the opportunity to become an integral part of a neighborhood mindful of having locally owned businesses,” said Davis.

“We are pleased to welcome Pearl Cup Coffee to Richardson,” said Mayor Bob Townsend. “Our community is known for bringing people and businesses together to share innovative ideas, and coffeehouses certainly play an important role in fostering collaboration and supporting civic engagement. We look forward to their arrival in the II Creeks shopping center.”

Check out this article from City of Ate!

Back in January, Lauren Daniels of the Dallas Observer food blog City of Ate wrote an article titled “Five Dallas Coffee Shops to Help Break Your Starbucks Habit.”  In  it she listed some of the best coffee shops in Dallas and critiqued each one briefly.  Pearl Cup was ranked as the number one coffee shop to help break your Starbucks habit, and we couldn’t be happier!  It is entirely worth mentioning that the other four shops listed in her article are absolutely worthy competition in the Dallas market of local coffee shops.  It is important that these other shops exist.  While we would love for you to get your coffee exclusively from us, we know that’s not always practical.  The most important thing is that you support the entire culture of independent businesses buy choosing your local coffee shop over that other, ahem… habit.  So here is a big shout out to Lauren Daniels and City of Ate for promoting a local minded cafe society.  Here is what she had to say about Pearl Cup:

“One of the most brilliant cups of coffee you’ll find in Dallas, the Cup’s signature blend coffee is a custom mix of Indonesian, African and Latin American beans. A small is $2. But the warm fuzzies you’ll get at this great spot are priceless. Besides, Starbucks baristas would never make you a froth flower.”

Also, just to play fair, these are the other four coffee shops mentioned:  Mercantile Coffee House, Murray Street Coffee Shop, Oaklawn Coffee, and Oddfellows.

Once again, thank you City of Ate for the kind words and the go local message.  Also thank you to all of our patrons as well as all patrons of local Dallas coffee shops!
