LAKE CITY, FL (June 28, 2021) – Ellianos Coffee has already made its home in Lake City, Florida. Community members have been flooding the double-sided drive-thru of its existing location since it first opened in 2005, and the Ellianos coffee bean logo has become something of an icon among locals. Mike and Alissa Stewart, owners of the existing U.S. Highway 90 location, are excited to have the opportunity to open their new location in Lake City.

In a recent interview, Mr. Stewart spoke about this new endeavor stating, “We’re excited to continue to expand the southeast’s premier coffee brand and bring an Ellianos location to the west side of I-75.” Mr. Stewart further noted, “Even though construction hasn’t started yet and there’s no indication of the new store, we have been working on the plans, site layout, and permitting for several months, and we hope to see some visual progress at the site soon.”

The location is anticipated to open toward the end of 2021 and will be located at 161 SW Stonegate Terrace, Lake City, FL, 32024. This prime location is near several medical offices, restaurants, and shopping centers and will be welcomed with much enthusiasm by nearby residents.

Holly grew up in the suburbs of Lake City, Florida, and cherishes the sweet memory of her mother regularly treating her to an Ellianos Cookies & Cream Freezer when she was young. Throughout her high school years, she remembers frequenting the drive-thru coffeehouse before classes for much-needed fuel. As Holly transitioned into college at Southeastern University to pursue a bachelor's degree, she continued to rely on an iced Tuscany Toffee latte to get her through late nights of studying. Her love of Ellianos has blossomed over the years, so when presented with the opportunity to combine her love of the coffee brand with her writing skill, she was quickly on board. Holly joined the Ellianos team early in 2021 to assist in content writing, and she has loved every moment. She currently resides in her hometown of Lake City, Florida, with her husband Alvin and dreams of continuing to be a part of the Ellianos family for years to come.
