A locally owned coffee shop in Nacogdoches, Java Jacks, has a reason to celebrate.
They have been in business for 20 years!
Java Jacks opened their original location on College Street back in 1996.
Originally the owners, Brent and Sarah Patton, just wanted to bring specialty coffee to Nacogdoches.
But in addition to selling coffee, they also created an environment for people of all ages to spend some time together and we’re told the last two decade have been an interesting ride.
“Trial and error”, said Sarah Patton.
“Yeah trial and error but it’s been good,” Brent Patton added. “We’ve enjoyed serving our community, we’ve been enjoying meeting and being able to connect and build relationships with our customers.”
“We’ve had customers we’ve really bonded with over the years,” said Sarah Patton.
“Wouldn’t trade that for the world,” said Brent Patton
The pair added it doesn’t feel like 20 years have gone by.
