Red Bulb has a home!!


The green building is the home of Red Bulb in Summer

After 9 months and 3 days, countless viewing, and several lease/purchase offers, we have finally secured our location for RedBulb. It was a process that was worth enduring, despite the frustration and anxiety, as we could not have asked for a better location for an espresso bar in Stouffville. Situated on the north side of Main Street, steps away from the GO train station, and about 850 sq ft, it is just the right starter place for Red Bulb.

Stouffville is the place we want to be after starting our location research from downtown in June 2009. It brought us through some interesting neighbourhoods in Toronto, including Mid-town, Richmond Hill, Vaughan, Markham. Stouffville, while smaller than the other areas, is growing leaps and bounds and it is definitely able to support more caffeine spots in the town.  Moreover,we lived in Stouffville and this is really where we want to be, being part of the Stouffville community.

Side view - great to have windows by the side.

Throughout the whole hunting process, Tammi, our real estate agent, has shown great support and perseverance. She has drafted countless documents, done numerous viewings, conducted multiple negotiations, and knocked on all the doors on Main Street Stouffville. We are thankful to have known her and she will always be linked to Red Bulb’s first location.

I will be lying if I said that I have been optimistic about finding a location in Stouffville. It is inevitable that you start asking questions as weeks drag into months,  and there was with no results in sight. The worst thing is the inability to push things along, because it is not like I could force someone to rent/sell their place.  But as Herb(one of my customer from Starbucks)has been telling me, things happen for reason and sometimes, you just need to dig your heels in and keep moving forward.

The most crucial element is decided – now the hard work begins. These are exciting times!!

I can’t wait for the opening and the location is absolutely perfect.Especially for me as I live directly across the street and love my coffee.
I’d also be interested in applying for a job with you so please keep me in mind and all the best to you
