Wired Coffee To Open At Cambridge Square

Free Coffee For Voters Aug. 7

Wednesday, July 30, 2014

Barrier Properties, LLC, the developer of the mixed-use community Cambridge Square in Ooltewah, has announced that Wired Coffee will officially open its doors on Thursday, Aug. 7.

Local entrepreneur Adam Rogers and a business partner will open and operate the 2,500 square-foot coffee shop which is located on the development’s public square. Wired will be open seven days a week. 

“We have put a lot of time and energy into designing our space so we can provide the best possible coffee shop experience in Ooltewah,” said Mr. Rogers. “We have received a lot of encouragement from the community and can not wait to get started. The space looks great, we have retained some top-notch employees, and we are ready to roll.”

In the spirit of the current elections in Hamilton County, Wired patrons who arrive with voting stickers on Aug. 7 can receive a free cup of coffee. The Ooltewah/Collegedale Chamber of Commerce will also be on hand that day to officiate a ribbon cutting ceremony for Wired. The event is open to the public and begins at 11 a.m.

“A locally owned coffee shop has been in demand in Ooltewah for a long time,” said Jim Cheney, marketing director for Barrier Properties. “We are very excited that Wired is opening and we are confident that they will add a positive new dimension to Cambridge Square. We see this as a big draw for students, people who work remotely, commuters, and really anyone looking to relax with a really good cup of coffee.” 

Wired takes its concept direction from scouting trips to New York City coffee shops and eateries, while adding a high level of Southern hospitality. Interior build-out elements include a fire place, and a community table and coffee bar. Each booth will have electrical connectivity for computers and smart phones and the entire space will offer free internet access. Wired will also have outdoor patio seating.

Wired’s menu will feature on-demand fresh roasted coffee provided by Batdorf & Bronson — an environmentally conscious, national roasting company which has been sourcing and roasting coffees from around the globe since 1986. It began its Atlanta operation in 1994.

In addition to coffee, Wired will offer specialty espresso-based beverages as well as one-of-a-kind locally sourced pastries. Wired has developed an iPhone and Android compatible application to enable customers to utilize gift cards, pay-by-phone transactions and to redeem and collect customer loyalty points.
