Akron Chamber of Commerce President DeLynn Geiger and his wife, Lori, are making things go into motion in Akron with their newest project and upcoming coffee shop, 'The Grounded Coffee House at the Depot.'
Paperwork was signed on August 19 that will allow the couple to move forward with their vision of moving, preserving, and renovating the former Akron Depot into a coffee house that will and moved to the lot where the old Opera House once stood in Akron, on State Rd 14 at the corner of Rochester and Mishawaka Street.
Lori said it was an idea they picked up one day and never put back down.
Lori is thankful for the community support that has started already. Everything will fall into place as the time comes, but for now, they're hoping to have everything up and running by the spring of 2023.
Kirk Robinson, who represents Pike Lumber and the Akron Revitalization Committee, says the coffee house will take Akron in the right direction. He has faith in the Geiger's vision.
