Airstream pop-up Cups and Pups Coffee
You can’t keep a good dog down. The former Airstream-based coffee pop-up Cups and Pups was thrown for a loop like the rest of the service industry with the onset of the coronavirus pandemic. Owners April and Matt Guldi adapted to a delivery model, slinging cold brew throughout the last year around Orlando. And that resourcefulness has clearly paid off. The one-time pop-up is moving into the current home of Gratitude Coffee after owner Jen Hackney calls it quits at that College Park outpost later this month.
Their plans involve renovating a 1959 Airstream trailer to act as a walk-up coffee window, adding an 8,000 square-foot off-leash dog park and an additional smaller park for dogs under 30 pounds.
If you love “good bois” and good coffee, you’ll love the new planned combination shop and off-leash dog park from Central Florida’s Cups and Pups Coffee.
Cups and Pups
Owners Matt and April Guldi have decided to expand from their current mobile cart coffee business at 6612 N. Orange Blossom Trail in Lockhart.
“We want to bring together every aspect of our local community where people can enjoy quality coffee and bring their animals and their kids,” Matt Guldi says in a statement. “The person who is really into coffee will enjoy our craft offerings, but a casual coffee drinker who loves dogs will feel welcome in our space. We want to expand the reach and relationship that we’ve built with locals in the past year at our coffee cart while creating a safe space where everyone leaves happier than they came.”
The grand opening of the new Cups and Pups is expected to be May 1. The Guldis plan to soft open at some point in April to test out their new space. And, as you might expect, the dog-friendly policy of Gratitude Coffee is staying in place.
