Keshone Schneider (with scissors), the new owner of Wake-Up Call with her husband Darin, cuts the ribbon to celebrate the coffee shop's opening at 790 W. Bridge in Blackfoot as board members of the Greater Blackfoot Chamber of Commerce join in the celebration.
While Wake-Up Call has been in Blackfoot for 10 years, it's in its third location in the past three years.
That's because Keshone Schneider, who started there as a junior at Blackfoot High School, and her husband Darin have bought the business and have put it in the center of town. Its address is 790 West Bridge.
"My goal is to bring the store back to a good sit-down coffee shop," Keshone said. But there's more.
She noted that she will continue to sell purses and LA Idol women's jeans as the former owner did. And. she has added more clothing items.
"I just finished college and I'm ready to pursue owning," she said of buying the store from its previous owner. She has a bachelor's of applied technology from Idaho State University.
In addition to space to sit down and enjoy a cup of coffee with new frapuccino flavors or new smoothie flavors, there's a drive-through window on the Bridge Street side of the store.
On Thursday members of the Greater Blackfoot Chamber of Commerce's board of directors joined Keshone for a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
The store and the drive-through are open from 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays. It is closed on Sundays.
Wake-Up Call has three employees, including its owner.
