March 31st – April 6th, 2014


Tuesday, April 1st is Wash Perk’s 6th birthday.   Wash Perk is more than a business, and I can guarantee you that we would have walked away by year 2 if it had been!  And we wouldn’t be around after year 5 if we didn’t then become a financially viable business.  

Thank you all for your support of our business and your contributions to our community.  We continue to grow ourselves and our business with the help of everyone who cares enough to keep coming back and purchasing, to keep giving us thoughtful advice, to keep sharing yourselves with us and our staff and our extended family that reaches far beyond our neighborhood.   I say it every year, and its still true, EVERY BIT MATTERS.

 Thank you to my amazing, patient partner, Debbi…Thank you to our dedicated and conscientious staff…Thank you to generous friend and fix it man, Bear Thank you to our fantastic roaster team at Kaladi Coffee…Thank you to our supportive landlord and friend, Janice McClure… and thank YOU.
