Tell us a little bit about your business!
Neutral Ground Coffeehouse is one of the newest additions to the Town of Pittsford. It is first a coffee/ice cream/breakfast/lunch cool music, laid back place where people can “meet in the middle’. As a bonus, it has has a separate venue space that folks can rent to hold parties (weddings, showers, corporate retreats, baby showers, birthday, end of life memorials, etc.). Folks love our atmosphere, the location, and the fantastic food!
How did your business start?
Marianne Warfle, the owner, decided to start a small coffee shop in town, the location in Northfield Common Plaza was available, and after a complete renovation the local community welcomed us with open arms!
How long has your business been in existence?
We opened both sides of the shop on 11/4/2021
What excites you about your business?
Hands down, the great customers! The building we are in is in a prime location, and folks have watched it sit empty for ten years. They are so excited and happy to have a place to go where they can sit inside or outside and enjoy a lovely cup of joe.
What initiatives or specials are coming up in the near future that you want to advertise?
We are so blessed to have been able to have such a tremendous response from the community and we have worked hard to keep up with our growth. We do know that this coming holiday season (November – January) will be are first opportunity to host many holiday parties. We are already starting to book, and will be advertising to plan you family, friends, and company parties soon!
What else do you want to promote for the next week or so?
We are working on holding some social nights but these are still in the works. Thinking of Thursdays – music, games, etc. , but this is still in the works.
Why is the Chamber important to you as a business person in Pittsford?
As a decades long supporter of Chambers, I know that the collective voice of a group of businesses, citizens, non-profits, etc. can get things done! Chambers of Commerce are such a staple nationwide, that no matter where a person goes, there is usually a chamber and whether it is for reference for a local eatery, hotel, etc. or a deeper discussion on the labor market, a chamber of commerce can help. Community involvement by businesses are a clear indicator of the strength of a town.
