A Dayton-based coffee company with roots dating to 1973 has opened a second central Ohio shop, offering a full coffee bar, baked goods and cigars.
Boston Stoker Coffee Co. is now welcoming guests at 6058 Glick Road in Shawnee Hills north of Dublin after celebrating its grand opening on Friday. The coffee roaster also operates a café in Grandview Heights at 1101 W. 1st Ave. and four in the Dayton area.
Established in 1973, Boston Stoker began as a pipe and tobacco shop by founders Don and Sally Dean, who decided to offer free coffee to increase their customer base. Demand continued to grow as Don bought the store’s first roaster in 1983.
