Arcade Coffee Roasters is opening our first space ever. We are doing something we feel contributes positively to the community and totally embodies our purpose as a business. We've been dreaming of this ever since we started in coffee back in 2013. Our passion is connecting with people and there is nothing like meeting someone for the first time or catching up with a regular. It's for sure the best part of our day. 

We wanted to be in an area that we felt we could bring a positive change and impact a community. Since we grew up here in Riverside we want to be part of the change and make it a place that people our age want to stay as well as connect with the generations that have made this community possible. So we are very excited to open our tasting room at 3672 Chicago Ave. It's crazy to think we are here and we can't do it without you!

Tasting Room Plans

Stretch Goal!!!

We can't believe we are here and funded! You guys are awesome! But we think we can do more so we are going to offer two stretch goals to see if we can go even farther!

Stretch Goal #1 - $17,500 

If we get to $17,500 we will throw another Kickstarter party celebrating the fact that you guys made this happen. We'll open the tasting room on a weekend night to all of our Kickstarter supporters and have food, beer and of course a ton of coffee. We will also open 10 more slots for the Arcade Coffee Club membership for the first quarter.

Stretch Goal #2 - $25,000 

$25,000 seems crazy but we think we can do it! If we get to $25,000 we'll throw the party, open the ACC slots and instead of only being open Thursday, Friday and Saturday we will open on Sundays as well! It will be a little extra work but we feel like you guys deserve it! Get out there and share and let's get this thing to $25,000!!!

Risks and challenges

Everyone has told us that we can expect the build-out to take double of what we originally thought, and they were right. This is our first time doing this and we have been learning a lot, but because of that our timelines are doubled. We have an awesome team that's ready to tackle this project so we are moving as fast as possible! Some of these rewards are contingent on the cafe opening and since we are at the mercy of city inspections we ask for your patience in claiming those rewards.

We are still running our wholesale operation and it is fully functioning as we move forward. It should not get in the way of our Kickstarter order fulfillment but we wanted to make sure we were transparent and let you know that is still our priority alongside making this tasting room a reality!
