Beca House owners Heather and Steve Jackson (from left) opened a satellite coffee shop in the atrium at Wyandot Memorial Hospital this week. Beca baristas Stephanie Beck and Kelsey Thammarat sold specialty coffee beverages to hospital patients, visitors and staff, and to community folks stopping in, too. WMH President and CEO Ty Shaull said the atrium is an ideal spot, as it is centrally located at the hospital. The Jacksons said Beca staffers Natalie Wert and Jenna Mundy will also be working at the satellite shop.
The Beca House Coffee Co. opened a satellite coffee shop in the atrium at Wyandot Memorial Hospital this week.
Beca House owners Steve and Heather Jackson have established hours at the new location from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 7 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Friday.
“We’ve been delivering coffee and specialty beverages to staff at the high school, hospital and other businesses on the north end of town for quite some time,” Steve Jackson reported. “This new location will be convenient for many of our regular customers.”
The satellite shop also gives folks the chance to get their coffee fix on Mondays, a day the store at 128 S. Sandusky Avenue is closed.
“We’ll be featuring many of our customer favorites at the satellite location,” Heather Jackson noted, “including freshly roasted coffee, coffee drinks, frappys, smoothies and frozen hot chocolate.”
Beca House funded the renovations for their satellite location in the hospital’s atrium, which was originally constructed in 2000 as part of the Medical Office Building and enclosed in the 2012 renovation and addition project.
“We’re thrilled to have Beca House on site,” Ty Shaull, hospital president and CEO, emphasized. “Their philosophy of putting the customer first and doing what is right compliments our patient-centered mission.”
Shaull said the coffees and specialty beverages will be a nice treat for patients in between meals and for visitors while they wait for a family member or friend. He expects the added traffic from the high school and area businesses will also offer the hospital an opportunity to showcase new physicians, added services and important classes.
“We hope to introduce some new faces to Beca House, too,” Steve added, “and entice them to visit our store uptown for the whole coffee shop experience and additional menu items and merchandise available there.”
