Java Joe's CoffeeHouse will open a location in DART Central Station at 620 Cherry St. the Des Moines Area Regional Transit Authority announced today.
Java Joe's will occupy a 1,372 square-foot space at the station, and will also be keeping open its original location at 214 4th St., owner Amy Brehm said.
Java Joe's will begin construction this month, and is set to open sometime this summer, according to a DART spokesman. Its menu will include coffee, beverages, desserts and sandwiches, and it will be open during station hours.
"We just thought it would be a good partnership with DART since they are our main regional transit system," Brehm said. "We just thought it would be a good partnership to get our good products over there for all their customers."
DART included the space when it built the station to open the possibility of housing some kind of food and beverage retailer. DART Central Station opened in November of 2012.
