ARIZONA CITY -- TumbleBeans in Arizona City is a new coffee shop located in the old Tumbleweed Market at 13640 S. Sunland Gin Road. The shop just recently had its grand opening and is quickly becoming a hit for the Arizona City community.
The coffee shop has branched out into not just serving drinks but also holding different events like live music as well as a car show.
Brian Ernst is part owner of the shop. He says that it has been a great thing to see the people of Arizona City enjoy the new addition to their community.
“Every day we have been slowly increasing with the number of people coming out,” Ernst said. “It took us about three or four months to renovate this place, and we have been in business for about a week now and have been doing really well.”
A resident of Arizona City for some time now, Ernst believes that the coffee shop is a way to help create community engagement.
“This coffee shop has really brought the community together. We get busy in the mornings, and are still busy throughout the day,” Ernst said. “It is really nice to just see the whole community come out and see some people I haven’t seen in a while, so it’s a good thing.”
Not only does Ernst believe the shop can be a way to bring the community together, he also sees it as a tool for the local economy of Arizona City.
“We have hired about 10 people here, so we are providing jobs, and we try to give back to the community by supporting our firefighters and first responders,” Ernst said. “We do what we do out here to try and galvanize the community. The whole reason for putting all of this together was to support the community, and it has been beyond my expectations so far.”
