Philz Coffee has officially announced its plans to open four locations in the Chicago Area! This will be their second market outside of California.
Philz Coffee will open its first shop in Wicker Park at the end of June, followed by shops in Lincoln Park, Hyde Park and Evanston. These neighborhoods have a vibrancy and authenticity that resemble the experience of visiting a Philz Coffee. In recent years, Wicker Park has become a haven for creatives and foodies alike - and with such high foot traffic, we can't think of a better place for Philz to open up shop!
They strive to create awesome gathering places in their coffee houses, each of which are individually tailored and designed for people to be comfortable in, meet together, work, study, or just grab a cup to fuel their day.
For those less familiar with the West Coast coffee chain, Philz began in San Francisco with a mission to individualize the coffee process. Through 25 years of labor, the brand still handcrafts their coffee to each customer’s specifications and keeps the flavors rich by slowing down the coffee brewing process. Their mission and values align with the customer, and they sure make everyone feel welcome.
They're also known for being the originator of the popular Mint Mojito Iced Coffee – made with fresh mint, cream and sugar. What started off as a labor of love, has turned into a national coffee chain with diehard fans. While there are four million ways to enjoy coffee, we can't wait to see the exciting response from Chicagoans.
"We are ecstatic to be joining the Chicago community. Spending time in Chicago is an up lifting experience. The warmth and kindness of the people is inspiring. The food is spectacular. The rich history and energy of the city is easily felt. We hope to contribute by building gathering places that are welcoming for everyone. We can’t wait to bring our mission to life and better more days in Chicago.”, Jacob Jaber, CEO, Philz Coffee.
