After months in the making, the official opening of the long-awaited coffee shop at the Ridgefield Administrative & Civic Center (RACC) is almost here.
The grand opening of The Birds + The Beans – A Ridgefield Coffee Refuge, is set for tomorrow, Saturday, October 5th (9:00 am – 5:00 pm) on First Saturday during Birdfest & Bluegrass. Among its many offerings are amazing coffees and delectable treats from Killa Bites.
The Birds + The Beans got its start as a project last year created by Business and Marketing students in Ridgefield High School’s CAPS Program. Working in partnership with the Ridgefield School District and local business, Killa Bites, the students (with guidance from CAPS teacher, Andrea Reinertson and Killa Bites owner, Laura Jhaveri) created the business plan, selected the vendors and designed the layout and branding for the new venture.
In the process, students Stella Blystone, Emma Haynie, Jolie Gullickson, Aidan McLaren, Karin Pajzinkova, and Jordan Nash gained industry knowledge and learned a lot about professionalism, collaboration and what it takes to create a business. We congratulate them for seeing the project through to completion and look forward to the success of the new business in the years to come.
This Saturday, come and visit Ridgefield’s newest coffee hub! The Birds + The Beans is located at 510 Pioneer Street, in the RACC lobby. Regular hours begin Monday, October 7th, Monday-Friday (7:00 am – 4:00 pm).
