The Sachse & Southlake Stores Represent the First Black Rock Locations in the Dallas/Ft. Worth Vicinity
Black Rock Coffee Bar, known for its premium roasted coffees, teas, smoothies and flavorful energy drinks, has announced plans to bring the unique coffee and beverage experience to two suburbs of the Dallas/Fort Worth area — Sachse and Southlake, Texas, respectively.
Founded in Portland, Oregon, in 2008, Black Rock currently has 76 locations in seven states, including Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Oregon, Texas and Washington. With the addition of these two stores, Texas now has a total of six locations in the state in the cities of Houston, Austin and now the Dallas/Fort Worth area.
The new Sachse location, scheduled to open in March 2021 is located at the intersection of Hwy. 78 and Woodbridge Parkway and will be part of the Shops at Woodbridge. The new Southlake location, which is scheduled to open in late spring 2021 is located at 2305 E Southlake Blvd. on the Southeast corner of E Southlake and S Kimball Ave.
“We are excited to add two more stores in the great state of Texas and the first of many Black Rock Stores in the Dallas/Fort Worth area,” said Jeff Hernandez, co-founder and exec. chairman of Black Rock Coffee Bar. “We at Black Rock look forward to serving the Sachse and Southlake communities and providing our authentic Black Rock experience that is lively, friendly and welcoming. Black Rock baristas are the most magnetic people you’ll ever meet, and they live to make a positive impact on every person that visits our stores, while serving our award-winning coffee and delicious flavored energy drinks.”
Incorporating Black Rock’s signature industrial modern design, the Sachse store will be approximately 2,000 square feet and Southlake store will be approximately 2,500 square feet. As with many of the Black Rock Stores around the country, long-time Black Rock employee Brian Koeniger has designed a large mural for the wall that embodies a Texas themed design.
The Black Rock culture, which prides itself on providing opportunities for young people to learn how to lead, run a business and develop people skills, will employ approximately 20 team members in each location. Interested candidates can apply for employment @blackrockdfw on Instagram.
