Gainesville, FL (July 24, 2023)Ellianos Coffee, a southeast-based drive-thru specialty coffee brand, is now open in Gainesville, FL. Located at 1521 SW 74th Drive, just minutes away from nearby subdivisions and shopping centers, the new Ellianos Coffee store is ready to serve the local community.

The ownership of the Gainesville location is operated by the same team behind the successful Ellianos Coffee store in Alachua, Florida, off U.S. Highway 441. Chad Stewart, Franchisee and Ellianos Coffee Vice President of Development, expressed his excitement about the expansion, stating, “We are excited to bring the local flavor of Ellianos that many have come to love in Alachua, Florida, down the road to Gainesville. When we saw the Markets West project that the Concept Companies had developed off Tower Rd, we knew we wanted to be a part of it.”

Mallory Pruitt, Executive Director of Ellianos Coffee, shared the company’s enthusiasm for the newly opened Gainesville store, saying, “We couldn’t be more thrilled to add another Ellianos location to the Florida market, and we know its opening will be met with much anticipation in Gainesville. We’re looking forward to reaching new customers in Alachua County, serving them the same high-quality products and excellent customer service experience we’ve come to be known for.”

Ellianos Coffee takes pride in offering a diverse menu that caters to various preferences. Now that the store is open in Gainesville, coffee lovers can indulge in specialty lattes, frozen coffee drinks known as Freezers, and drip coffee. For those who prefer non-coffee options, the menu includes smoothies, teas, and their latest energy drink line, “Ellianos Edge.” In addition to beverages, Ellianos Coffee also serves a range of food items, such as hearty breakfast grit bowls, Egg Bites, breakfast sandwiches, bagels, cookies, brownies, chicken salad croissants, and more.
