THE BLEND

Welcome to The Blend!

The Blend is the latest hot spot in Downtown Burlington, so move over Starbucks!  This fabulous coffee shop opened on Front Street in early spring.  From the moment I first went in I knew it was something special from the delicious smell of freshly ground coffee to the sleek and industrial yet warm and welcoming decor...I knew I had found my new favorite place.

I had the opportunity to sit down with the owner and creative genius behind The Blend, Holly Treadwell.  Holly is a graduate of Savannah School of Art and Design with a degree in Industrial Design.  She had the idea of opening a coffee shop that serves fair and direct trade organic coffee and healthy smoothies.  She started to design the space as an addition to her portfolio and quickly realized that her dream could become a reality.  The mission behind the blend is to create community while supporting a local roaster and serving a premium product.
