Ithaca Coffee Company to expand

Ithaca Coffee Company will be expanding thanks to a $100,000 loan from the City of Ithaca’s Urban Renewal Agency.

The funds will be used by the company to acquire a building on the 700 block of Hancock Street to house its coffee roasting operation and production.

Marketing Director Aaron Rovitz says the expansion will mean the hiring of new employees.

Rovitz says Ithaca Coffee Company hopes to have the new location up and running by early fall.
