“The building of these stores came from the community spending money with [Acre]. We’ve been solicited by investors, but once you do that you lose control and end up losing the local feel and the integrity of the products. Before you know it, you’ll have a whole grab-and-go case full of plastic bottles and stuff made somewhere else. We’ve funded the stores through our customers and their interactions with us.”

-Steve DeCosse | Owner, Acre Coffee
