Local start-up business Unlocked Coffee Roasters plans to open its first shop and café at Poe West, a mixed-used development in the Village of West Greenville. CBRE arranged the lease for the business, which plans to open late this summer, according to a news release.
Unlocked Coffee Roasters is owned by Carlos Camargo and Roci Salazar, a married couple with Columbian heritage and a social impact mission. The shop and roastery will empower local women in shelters and support Colombian farmers, the release said.
“We are excited for our dreams to come true in such a welcoming and vibrant city, Greenville. Unlocked Coffee Roasters is a coffee shop and roastery with a focus on building strong relationships with farmers, employees, customers and the community. Our vision is finally coming to life and we couldn’t be happier,” Camargo said in the release.
The 60,000-square-foot Poe West development is anchored by Greenville Technical College Center for Culinary and Hospitality Innovation. Carolina Bauernhaus, LaRue Fine Chocolate, and Six & Twenty Distillery announced their occupancy earlier this year.
