As of April 1, Copper Creek Coffee has a new location to call home: 501 Main Ave N. The warm and welcoming space is a bit smaller in size than their previous location, but owner Brian Colesworthy has big plans for the coffee shop.
“As soon as we can, I want to get some cornhole tournaments going out back. Maybe even have food trucks available to make this a hang out spot for tourists and locals alike.”
The larger lot size will also allow for a drive thru utilizing the Copper Creek bus, outside seating, events and participation with Harvest Hosts which welcomes a limited number of self-contained RV/travel trailers to the back yard for an overnight stay.
Coffee is not the only thing served at Copper Creek. In the few minutes during our interview, customers asked for smoothies, iced tea, takeout sandwiches and soup. Brian also has hopes of starting an online order system that can be brought out to the customer’s vehicle. On tap for evening events are craft beers and wine.
“I really want this to be a place where everyone is welcome. One of my favorite things is visiting with tourists from out of the country. It’s surprising how many people come through here from other countries and are interested in learning more about our area.”
Also popular with tourists is the variety of gifts and merchandise displayed throughout the shop, many of them locally made.
Currently, Copper Creek Coffee is open from 8am-2:30pm but hours will expand in May. Be sure to follow them on Facebook at Copper Creek Coffee- Choteau, MT for daily specials and announcements. And let me be the first to tell you, the Huckleberry Iced Tea is fantastic.
Join us on Thursday, April 21 from 5-7pm as Copper Creek Coffee hosts Chamber After Hours. Drinks and appetizers will be served. After Hours gives business owners and residents a chance to kick back after work and socialize away from the pressures of the workplace. We encourage meeting new people and introducing them to our local businesses.
