The aroma of freshly brewed coffee and the promise of community connections are soon to fill the air as Roots Coffee, a delightful haven for coffee enthusiasts, prepares to open its second location in Sugar House on Saturday, September 30th, located at 1386 S 1100 E, Salt Lake City, UT 84105.
Local owners, Kenzie Packard and Ginalen Soto can’t wait to brew up this exciting adventure in a community they admire and love. To kick off this celebration, a ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held at 7am on September 30th, symbolizing the realization of Kenzie and Ginalen’s dream–a dream that began on their journey around the world, exploring the rich coffee culture of various countries. Media, community members, and city officials are invited to attend.
Kenzie and Ginalen’s love affair with coffee blossomed during their travels, with the coffee-rich city of Cartagena, Columbia, leaving an incredible mark on their hearts. It was here that the idea of Roots Coffee first took root–an idea to create a cozy and inviting cafe that would encapsulate the richness and warmth of genuine connections forged over a cup of coffee. Upon returning to Salt Lake City, Kenzie and Ginalen applied the knowledge gained from their global adventures to establish Roots Coffee & Co., which would go on to earn them the title of Best Coffee Shop in Salt Lake City for three consecutive years (2021, 2022, 2023) due to their commitment to the community and dedication to putting “people first, coffee second”.
Roots Coffee’s expansion into Sugar House was a natural progression for Kenzie and Ginalen, who were drawn to the neighborhood’s unique charm and historical significance. “We are so excited to be a part of the Sugar House community. This community has soul, charm, and so much vitality; we can only hope to add to its beauty”, said owner Kenzie. Their journey as business owners has taught them the value of perseverance, adaptability, and the joy of creating a space that welcomes all.
As a token of appreciation to their new and loyal customers, Roots Coffee is offering an exclusive loyalty program bonus. All customers who sign up during the first two weeks of operation will receive an extra 5 beans added to their account. Roots Coffee’s grand opening promises to be a celebration of coffee, community, and meaningful connections. Join Kenzie and Ginalen on September 30th and become a part of the Roots Coffee family.
