Mitchall & I are young entrepreneurs at the ages of 25 & 28. We welcomed our first child into our family in May of 2018 and we are absolutely adoring being new parents to our sweet baby girl! Our story begins back in 1996 when I was just 3 years old & Mitchall came over to hang out with my big brother. My parents introduced Mitch to me, he remembers thinking I had a weird name! After having Mitch grow up with my family playing music with my brother, he ended up moving across the country. Mitchall and I began our relationship in 2012. Mitch was living in Florida with his dad, and for me, I had just moved out on my own. Mitch & I started talking on Facebook one day, and we never really stopped. 5 months later he moved to Indiana on a cold March day, and we got married 2 years later & have now been married for almost 4 years! For only being married for 4 years, Mitch and I have been through our fair share of things, good & bad. While battling my father being sick to tragically losing my mother-in-law & my uncle, Mitch & I decided to buy the Coffee House. I was working at Gathering Grounds Coffee Shop at the time and Mitch was working at Forum Credit Union. We purchased Gathering Grounds Coffee Shop in November of 2015 and reopened the shop only 1 week later! We decided to make it a slow transition (trying to not freak the whole town of Pendleton out by all of our big plans). We kept the shop name Gathering Grounds until that February, when we renamed ourselves Falls Perk Coffee House. My mom had picked out this name many years ago, not telling anyone but me, and not knowing one day we would open this "Central Perk" inspired coffee shop. Mitch and I love the television sitcom FRIENDS so this was just a perfect fit for us! Shortly after our name change, we were approached about this cute little white house right around the corner from where we were located, and they were ready to turn this house into a new business & they thought we were perfect for it, and they were so right! Right across the street from Falls Park, in a HOUSE! The house was entirely gutted down to the studs when we first saw it, so we had to be creative with our thinking. We designed the layout of the house to fit us perfectly! On September 1, 2016 we reopened Falls Perk Coffee House on Pendleton Avenue. Not even 1 year into business we re-opened TWICE! This move was the best decision we ever made! Moving off of the main street, may have seemed to be a "risk" to most people, but we knew this would be a destination. We knew people would turn that corner to come get their favorite coffee. We have a much more open layout with a simple & clean design, we also have a perfect porch off the side of our building so you can enjoy your coffee outside on those perfect Indiana days. Mitchall & I are very grateful for each other & this experience we have been given. Our minds are constantly moving, trying to come up with ideas to build Falls Perk even more. We seriously wouldn't be where we are today without the support of our families, our community, and our baristas.
Thank you for taking the time to visit our website, and read all my rambling.
