“It’s with a big heart that we decided to close our doors. We thank you and thank you for your support during the past two years!” Reads a Facebook message and a note on the front door of 241 S. Main St. The note is signed by owner Paula Dirks and “Head of Chad.”
The Pendleton coffee bean closure is a sudden end to a company with a winding route inside and off the main street.
Pendleton Coffee Bean began as a coffee in the Fraternal Order of Eagles building at 428 S. Main St. until 2007, when a fire destroyed the building.
It was reopened as a truck through the cafe at 1803 S. W. Emigrant Ave. Before returning to Main Street as a full-service restaurant and bar in 2015.
The Pendleton Development Commission has made significant investments to bring the coffee bean into the centre.
In 2014, the Commission approved a $ 30,000 loan from its Jump Start program to help reduce start-up costs for a new space and expand the menu.
After proving that the company had contracted the equivalent of more than 10 full-time jobs, the Pendleton coffee bean has received a grant of $ 10,360 from the Commission in 2016, using a feature of little use of the Jump Start program To participants $ 1000 for each new full-time job that they create during the first operation of their exercise..
Denight said the commission is likely to restructure the repayment plan under the circumstances, but if all else fails, the commission can carry the material and equipment that the homeowner bought with the loan guarantee.
