Leaves 'N Beans Announces Morton LocationTuesday, March 22, 2011
Morton, IL – Today, James Cross, Owner of Leaves ‘N Beans Roasting Company, announced they would be opening a second location in Morton, IL. “We love the inclusive feel in Morton,” said Cross. “We are a local company and Morton’s community understands the importance of supporting locally.”
At their location in Peoria Heights, Leaves 'N Beans offers locally roasted coffee, bakery goods, omelets and breakfast sandwiches, gourmet sandwiches, wraps, panini, & salads. “We will be offering our full menu at the Morton location,” said Cross. “Our menu selections are crafted using the freshest ingredients available.”
The new Morton Leaves ‘N Beans will be located in a 2,000 square foot space on Main Street most recently inhabited by Sweet Treats and Coffee Too and Little Betty’s. Sidewalk seating will be available during the warm weather seasons. “Sweet Treats and Coffee Too was the only place in Morton that sold our coffee,” said Cross. “Our Morton customers supported us then and we want them to be able to continue to purchase our coffee in Morton.”
The Morton Economic Development Council joined Cross in making the announcement. “Having another locally-owned, independent, and high quality eating and drinking establishment choose Morton is a testament to the progress we are making in our downtown planning,” said Jennifer Daly, CEO for the Morton EDC. “Rex Urban, the owner of the building where Leaves ‘n Beans is locating, has a great vision for what our downtown can become and continues to reach out to retailers and restaurants that support that vision to fill his space.”
Leaves ‘N Beans plans to open their Morton location this April. They will be open Monday through Saturday from 7am to 10pm and Sunday from 7am to 5pm. “When we open, we will have a ribbon cutting on a Friday and then will donate $1 for everyone cup of coffee we sell the following day, Saturday, to the Morton School District,” said Cross.
