Rise Up Coffee Roasters Purchases Viva Espresso

MARCH 2015, SALISBURY, MD – Bradley Gillis, CCIM, Senior Advisor with Sperry Van Ness – Miller Commercial Real Estate facilitated the deal for Rise Up Coffee Roasters to purchase the Viva Espresso located at 105A East College Avenue in Salisbury, MD. Viva Espresso owners Chuck and Nancy Dix are retiring but stated, “We thank all of our loyal customers, especially our daily patrons, for their support of us and our products. We hope that you will visit the College Avenue location when it re-opens as Rise Up Coffee.”

Rise Up Coffee has been an independent small-batch coffee roaster and retailer since March 2005. Recently celebrating their ten year anniversary, Rise Up has a loyal following and strong brand on the Eastern Shore. The College Avenue location will become the fourth location for Rise Up Coffee, which already has existing locations in Easton, MD, St. Michaels, MD, and Salisbury, MD. They will be doing light renovation work on the College Avenue space and plan to re-open the business in mid-April. “As an Eastern Shore original, we take great pride in serving our local communities,” stated Tim Cureton, owner of Rise Up Coffee. “We’re very excited to add another option for our friends in the Salisbury Community, and we’re also very excited for Nancy and Chuck as they transition on to their next adventure!” To learn more about Rise Up Coffee Roasters visit www.riseupcoffee.com.
