Luna Coffee is coming to 11 5th St. N.
Owner Samir Aarab, an attorney at Boland Aarab upstairs in the same building, said they hope to open mid-September.
Luna Coffee will serve coffee, smoothies, fresh squeezed orange juice and paninis, Aarab said.
He said the goal is to offer a quick lunch spot for the downtown.
Aarab is originally from Norway and said his family was in the restaurant and coffee shop business.
“This is a place I would like to go for lunch,” he said. “It’s simple, fast and good ingredients. This is something we want to see in downtown.”
He said he and his wife, Caitlin Boland Aarab, had been looking for spaces to rent for about a year.
Then when Blend’s Copy Shop closed the building owner approached the couple about sharing that space with Falls Print Works, which also opened recently. They’ll be doing some minor remodeling in the space, he said.
Aarab said that though the COVID-19 pandemic has been a factor, “I never thought of it as a reason not to open up in this town.”
Big Mouth BBQ
Rich and Sara Hollis are now the owners of Big Mouth BBQ.
“With guidance (sweat & tears) from Sean and Suzie Knox we will continue to create delicious BBQ using the same cooking methods and recipes. So please come see us at Big Mouth BBQ at the Hi Ho. Our new email is email@example.com or call us at 727-7095. Our daily specials will be posted on Facebook.”
Falls Print Works
Falls Print Works has opened at 11 5th St. N. and is owned by Linda and Matt Wolf of Great Falls.
Linda Wolf and the manager, Summer Heckenlaible, have more than 20 years combined experience in printing, according to Heckenlaible.
“Linda found out that Blend’s was closing and knew there was a need for a printing service downtown. She decided that it was the perfect time and place to bring a dream of hers into reality,” Heckenlaible said.
Falls Print Works purchased a few items from Blend’s, but most of their equipment is new, she said.
“We offer many of the same services offered by Blend’s, however we also offer a large variety of services that were not offered by Blend’s, such as promotional products and we will have notary services available beginning next week,” Heckenlaible said.
