Coffee lovers rejoice!  Stomping Grounds Coffee Shop will reopen next month and it will be everything you know and love.  In fact, the new owner is a familiar face.  Welcome Jacquie Forrest, who for many months helped craft your sandwiches and drinks at Stomping Grounds; she's now the boss.

Food, drinks, atmosphere -- even the WiFi password will remain unchanged.  Guests may notice some minor changes, but for the most part, it will be the Stomping Grounds you remember.

Forrest told Durand Now that she's not trying to reinvent the wheel.  "She knows what she's doing; she set a standard.  She's built something great here," Forrest said of Nikole Hartzell, who is passing the torch.  "Nothing had to be fixed," she said.  

"Stomping Grounds was, and will remain a staple," Hartzell added, noting that she's on Forrest's speed dial.  

Forrest left her full time career late last year in search of something new, but she didn't see this coming.  Still, she says, it's always been her dream.  "I'm excited.  It's been a wonderful transition.  It's been very smooth and stress free.  It's very meant to be."

Forrest won't be the only familiar face when Stomping Grounds reopens.  She says at least four of the coffee shop's past employees will be back, and yes, they'll be serving up FreakShakes.
 
Gourmet bagels, brand new to Stomping Grounds, will also be served up on day one.  Soup will return in the fall, as the seasonal menu changes.  Hours will also be seasonal, and while the coffee shop's hours will be generally consistent with the hours guests are used to, the one notable change is that Stomping Grounds will be closed one day a week, on Mondays.

The countdown is on.
