About the Episode

Coffee shops have taken on an important social role in communities. They facilitate local art, local food and beverage vendors, and serve as warm and quiet places for people to work, collaborate, and gather. However, the social aspect has lessoned as coffee shops have more and more evolved into places of work. The Rose Establishment, however, wanted to bring the social back to the equation.

Opened in 2010 by Erica O’Brien, The Rose Establishment has become a staple in the Pioneer Park neighborhood. And with no Internet, it’s the perfect place to gather for conversation, quiet reflection, or a damn good sandwich. On top of having locally sourced food options and seasonal beverages, The Rose Establishment is a completely restored space, a project tackled by Erica and her father.

“A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.”
- William Shakespeare

Join us on the show this week as we’re joined by Erica O’Brien, Cody Kirkland, and Cori Norton, the three creatives behind this evolving coffee space that has firmly taken root into a neighborhood that is full of potential, and offers a bright future ahead.
