Rook Coffee Opening and Moving Headquarters in Long Branch
Monmouth county is lucky enough to have seven Rook Coffee stores to enjoy. According to a press release, one more is on the way in Long Branch.
The new roastery and production facility will be located at 10 North Third Avenue, one block off of Broadway. It will sit across the street from the Long Branch Fire Department and from Brookdale Community College's satellite campus.
The owners are hoping to close on the building within the next month and they look forward to having a second Rook Coffee in Long Branch.
The new production facility occupies the entire street block at the corner of North Third Avenue and Union Avenue.
Rook Coffee hopes to be a part of the revitalization of downtown Long Branch. Rook’s new production facility is located in Long Branch’s “area in need of redevelopment”.
Rook Coffee will join the upcoming opening of a sustainable beer garden, known as “The Whitechapel Projects”, at the corner of Broadway and Second Avenue and a 13,000-square-foot CVS Pharmacy that just opened in the lot facing South Broadway and Ocean Boulevard. Additionally, the city of Long Branch recently purchased land for parking next to the beer garden and across from Pier Village and the CVS.
Rook Coffee’s new production space will house a 70-kilo roaster which will have the ability to produce five times the amount of coffee that the current roastery in Ocean Township does. The facility will provide a headquarters for roasting, cold brewing and eventually office space. Although there are not immediate plans to open a coffee bar in the building open to the public, it is possible for the future.
The new coffee roastery and production facility will join Rook’s coffee bar locations: two in Oakhurst, one each in Long Branch, Little Silver, Wall Township, Red Bank, Manalapan and one coming soon in Colts Neck.
