SLO Life Magazine

When we moved to San Luis Obispo 4 years ago, SLO Life Magazine was a big part of how we learned about the amazing community here in San Luis Obispo.  Now, almost 4 years later, it’s such an honor to have been featured on the cover.  Here’s the story for those that may have missed the issue!

Scout Coffee Foothill -- Drink it in sign

Scout 2 / 880 E. Foothill Blvd.

We just opened up our second location at 880 Foothill Blvd on August 2!  Lots of stories to come about all of the details and our process, but here are a few opening photos, along with some of the video clips we took as we built it out.

Our hours at this location are: 6:30a – 7:30p.

We are excited to be here and are looking forward to the life this new location takes on as it grows.  Thanks so much for all of your ongoing support!

Barista Magazine

Barista Magazine is the big industry magazine for what we do here at Scout, so we were really excited that they wanted to do a write up about our start-up process and buildout.

Getting Close!

We are finally only about a week away from our open, and are so thankful to so many of you for your help and support.  We just hired our first round of staff and they are amazing… you are seriously going to love them!  We will be doing training all this week, and should be on track for a soft open early next week.  Once it’s all set, we’ll be sure to blast it out through the internets.

A special and very sincere thanks again to all who came out for the group interviews or sent in resumes online.  We’ve been amazed by the quantity and quality of everyone who applied, and wish we could hire everyone.  Thank you all.

Here’s a quick photo to bring our blog back to life.  After we get through the opening, we’ll post some before, during and after photos, and begin telling the story of our sustainable and repurposed materials throughout the store.  In the meantime, you can check our flickr page to see some before photos.

Thanks so much for stopping by — we look forward to seeing you all soon.

The Lumber Yard

Don Seawater is the lumber man in SLO — he owns Pacific Coast Lumber, and has a line on all the good stuff.  On a foggy morning a couple days ago, he showed us around his yard with our friends Ryck, Matt and Jenn who introduced us all. We went to PCL looking to find some lumber for building bar tops, table tops, an outdoor living wall, and to face the front of our bar.  We left blown away by the generosity and helpfulness of all of these people.  Stay tuned for some truly amazing wood work that will help make Scout such a great place to enjoy your coffee.  We can’t wait.
