Norwalk’s First Drive-Through Coffee Shop Now Open
NORWALK, Iowa (March 3, 2005) Two Ducks Coffee has now opened for business at the Shoppes at The Legacy in Norwalk, a property owned and managed by Hubbell Realty Company. This 1,200 square foot shop is Norwalk’s only drive-through coffee house and is located at 2400 Highway 28 in Suite 109. Shelli Backstrom, a native of Des Moines and owner of Two Ducks Coffee, chose the location for its high visibility and drive-up capabilities. “I live in Norwalk and saw firsthand the need for a drive-through coffee shop,” states Backstrom. “This location didn’t initially have a drive-through option, but Hubbell Realty Company’s ability to convert the existing space to our needs sold us on this location.” Two Ducks Coffee isn’t just about a drive-through. Plush leather chairs, trendy artwork and high-top tables adorn the interior, providing an inviting space to enjoy the varieties of coffees and pastries. “Our pastries, cookies and cheesecakes are a big hit,” states Backstrom. “We’ve had a lot of compliments on our Red, White, and Blue cookies which we make right here in the store. You can’t get them anywhere else in Norwalk.” “We’re thrilled to have a unique coffee shop like Two Ducks Coffee in the Shoppes at The Legacy,” states Steve Niebuhr, Senior Vice President of Hubbell Realty Company. “This type of business adds to the diversity of the Shoppes, which already includes Community State Bank, Flixx and China Dragon.” Norwalk Chamber of Commerce will host a ribbon cutting ceremony on Wednesday, March 9 at 11:30 a.m. Two Ducks Coffee is open Monday through Thursday, 6:30 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.; Friday, 6:30 a.m. – 10 p.m.; Saturday, 7:30 a.m. – 10 p.m.; Sunday, 7:30 a.m. – 8 p.m. For more information on Two Ducks Coffee, contact Shelli Backstrom at 515-778-3384.
