"This is just the beginning of what will be a flurry of restaurants, retail and entrepreneurship that will land on Washington Row," says Co+Hoots founder, Jenny Poon. "To continue Co+Hoots' goal in increasing our influence on Phoenix small businesses, we want to help nurture and grow companies we believe fill a need in our community."

Poon is talking about GreaterThan Coffee, the java shop scheduled to grand open Monday, January 28, in the front retail space of the Co+Hoots building.

From Tanya Moushi and Tricky Burns, GreaterThan Coffee will feature coffee, tea, and snacks for its built-in clientele of entrepreneurs (who helped with the coffee shop's branding, design work, and marketing) as well as those popping in and off the 12th Street and Washington/Jefferson light rail stop.

"We are beyond enthused to be bringing on GreaterThan Coffee," says Co+Hoots director of operations, Kelsey Wong. "It represents the perfect opportunity to bring together the best of both worlds, coffee and coworking."

GreaterThan Coffee will be offering 25% off all drinks during its grand opening celebration on Monday, January 28. Hours are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. For more details, visit GreaterThan Coffee's Facebook page.
