Wake Up Call has moved and is open for business at its new location just west of Blackfoot at 320 W. Hwy. 26. Business hours are from 5:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday.
On the menu is a good variety of coffee and non-coffee drink choices, fruit smoothies, Frappuccino, expresso, flavored steamers and hot chocolate as well as muffins, cookies and biscotti.
Drinks come in small, medium and large sizes. Prices range from $1.25 for drip coffee to $5 for specialty drinks and â€śeverything in between,â€ť said owner Christie Oleson.
â€śBusiness has been good; thanks to my loyal customers,â€ť Oleson said. â€śThis is a really good location; the manager at Sinclair has been great to work with.â€ť
For the convenience of their customers, Wake Up Call and A&W share the same drive-up window.
Oleson purchased Wake Up Call three years ago â€śbecause it was going to be closed.
â€śI was its best customer,â€ť she said. â€śI would get a cup of coffee on my way to work as a nurse at Bingham Memorial Hospital and after my shift ended when I was returning home.â€ť
Wake Up Call has three full-time and two part-time employees.
Purses, hats, boots and fun accessories can also be purchased there. Employee Keshone Cathey is in charge of accessories.
Oleson and her husband, Justin, have five childrenâ€”Dakota, 19, Cheyenne, 17, Wyatt, 16, Riggin, 2 and Ruger, 10 months.
