A recently launched coffeehouse named Good Earth Coffeehouse is now available in Sudbury’s Chapters building. The coffeehouse, located on the Kingsway, emphasizes sustainable practices and provides diverse food choices for individuals with dietary limitations. Its official opening was on Monday.
Meet the Co-owner
Sarah Walsh, who co-owns the business, arrived in Sudbury with her sister in 2010 to pursue nursing studies at Laurentian University. She served as a pediatric nurse in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) for eight years before opting for a career shift that would allow her to spend more time with her loved ones. She discovered the Good Earth Coffeehouse franchise by chance and was attracted to it because it matched her principles.
Walsh expressed that owning a coffee shop appealed to her, along with the sustainability initiatives aimed at improving the planet, given that she has two young children.
Sustainability and Dietary Restrictions
Good Earth Coffeehouse prioritizes sustainability and provides a range of dietary options. Their menu is color-coded to indicate vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free choices. The coffee is sourced through the rainforest alliance, which works directly with farmers to eliminate intermediaries seeking additional profits. Occasionally, they purchase coffee from female-run farms.
Liquor License and Grand Opening
The coffee shop is currently working on acquiring a license to sell alcoholic beverages, including locally brewed beers and specialty cocktails. On June 30, they will have a grand opening event featuring live music and complimentary coffee cards. The owner plans to have live music performances and open mic nights in the future.
The Good Earth Coffeehouse not only serves excellent coffee, but also prioritizes sustainability and accommodating different dietary needs. It’s a valuable addition to Sudbury’s coffee culture and definitely worth a visit.
