Pullman Coffee Roaster Proposed for Neighborhood Opportunity Fund Grant
Mayor's Press Office 312.744.3334
A 16,500-square-foot beverage production facility would be constructed in Pullman with the support of a $2M Neighborhood Opportunity Fund (NOF) grant proposed to City Council today by Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot.
The $7.2M project by Cup O’ Joe Coffee LLC at 756 E. 111th St. is planned to include a coffee roastery, brewery, café, and taproom, supporting 50 permanent jobs. Currently vacant, the site was once part of Ryerson Steel’s Pullman plant.
The Neighborhood Opportunity Fund allocates voluntary zoning fees from downtown construction projects to support neighborhood commercial corridors in low- to moderate-income communities on the South, Southwest, and West sides. Projects with grant amounts exceeding $250,000 require City Council approval.
