Valdosta, Georgia (February 6, 2023) – Ellianos Coffee, a southeast-based drive-thru specialty coffee brand, is soon to expand in Valdosta, Georgia. Ellianos reports that it signed the agreement with new franchisees, Beth Joyner and Mystie Fehlman, and is looking forward to growing in the Valdosta market. The new store will be located at 3277 North Valdosta Road.

Ellianos Coffee is already operating at 1343 Baytree Road in Valdosta under the ownership of Ashley DeLoach and is a beloved staple in the Valdosta community. The sister franchisee duo, Beth and Mystie, are thrilled to expand Ellianos in their town and serve the same high-quality products with excellent service the brand is known for. Beth, a long-time Valdosta resident, has served her community as a dental hygienist before dedicating her time to being a stay-at-home mom of two. Mystie, a new transplant to Valdosta with real estate experience, moved from the northern Georgia town of Jefferson to embark on this new venture with her sister. The sisters commented on their soon-coming store, “We are super excited to be able to open a new Ellianos location in the Valdosta community where we love to live. We want to bring the great taste of specialty coffee to the area.”
