A local staple for the Community of Arbuckle has recently opened under new ownership.
The local coffee shop, previously owned by Lana Bento, who began the shop at 208 Fifth Street a few years ago, announced that she was to expand her promotions business and that new owners would take over the shop in October of 2014.
Just days before the Arbuckle Car Show, the owners of Two Chicks Creations, Adrian Murphy, and Serena Carlsen took ownership creating a one stop treat shop.
“This is something we have been looking forward to doing for a long time,” said Murphy, “the timing was never right until now.”
For over four years, the duo worked from their homes, with the help of the cottage food permit, selling custom cakes and treats through social media and word of mouth.
“Cakes and treats are our primary focus, but we love the addition of the coffee shop to our business,” said Murphy, “It is another way we can be creative.”
Shortly after taking ownership, the Two Chicks Creations Coffee and Sweets shop changed expanded the existing business hours and adding homemade soups and a fresh garden salad bar to its service.
“We take pride in customer service and will do our best to meet the demands of our customers,” said Murphy, “We also use local products as much as possible.”
Two Chicks Creations Coffee and Sweets offers a wide selection of coffees, espresso, tea, smoothies, pastries, cookies, and muffins in addition to their custom cake, cookie products.
“We can do cakes for any occasion, including wedding cakes and specialty birthday cakes,” said Carlsen, “we also do various custom cookie and treat orders as well.”
For now, most of the cake and cookie orders are made by request but Carlsen and Murphy will soon be making a change to that service in the near future.
“We are working on getting a larger oven and a refrigerated display case to expand our bakery services,” said Murphy.
The Two Chicks Creations Coffee and Sweet Shop is open Monday through Saturday, 6:00 AM to 5:00 PM and is located at 208 Fifth Street in Downtown Arbuckle; or give them a call at (530) 476-3250.
“We invite everyone to stop in and have a cup of coffee, grab a treat or try our soup of the day,” said Murphy.
