After expanding their consignment store to a new, larger space on Main Street, Andy and Cindy Kofile decided to once again expand their business.
This time, however, they are varying away from used clothing and housewares to hot cups of coffee and finger foods.
MoJoe’s Cafe opened at the August Main Street First Friday celebration.
The cafe serves Andy’s famous turkey Reuben sandwich, other deli sandwiches, ice cream floats, fruit smoothies, soda and coffee.
MoJoe’s is located in the same building as the Kofiles’ consignment store, Re-Runs Resale Boutique.
The boutique recently celebrated its one year anniversary.
“Andy has decided to expand his horizons into the food and beverage industry by re-vamping an extra room in our spacious 1,700-square-foot suite to include another of Historic Main Street’s newest business additions — MoJoe’s Cafe,” they said.
Originally, the Kofiles said they wanted to create a refuge for the husbands to visit and enjoy while their wives shopped next door at Re-Runs.
But they have also created a hometown place for Rim Country residents who have felt the great loss of Fireside Espresso, which closed several months ago.
Offering wireless Internet for their customers, MoJoe’s Cafe gives customers a quiet place to sit and enjoy a drink and something light to eat while meeting a friend or reading the paper, the Kofiles said.
“Andy is good with conversation though, if you want to chew the fat.”
MoJoe’s is open Monday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
