Summit Coffee

Summit Coffee is adding three locations soon, including one on North Main Street in Cornelius, just down the road from its basecamp at 128 S. Main St., Davidson.

Summit confirmed the Cornelius location is about a block north of  the Food Lion shopping strip at 20239 N.Main St. The other two new spots are in the Charlotte neighborhoods of Eastover and Ballantyne.

A source at Summit says the Cornelius location could open by the end of summer, if not the end of the second quarter, then the beginning of the third.

The three new shops —that’s a 30 percent increase in the number of  locations —will join the 10 coffee shops in Asheville, Charlotte, Davidson and Roswell, Ga. Closer to home are franchises in Mooresville and Huntersville.

Summit is also updating its website and adding a couple of new products. But that’s hush-hush for now. The new products will be announced when the website is updated in March.

The Waterman Fish Bar
