Just in time for #ShopSmallSaturday Downtown Ashburn will be welcoming its newest restaurant. Opened by mother and daughter team Gail and Marie Jordan, HeBrew welcomes diners to fresh coffee, pastries and lunchtime fare.
Opened in the previous location of BetterTech, the pair hopes their nearness to the courthouse, post office and newly opening shops downtown will bring both locals and tourists from the nearby Crime and Punishment Museum into their dream shop.
“We are looking to give back to the community,” said Gail Jordan, “We want to be that place people can come gather.”
HeBrew will be open Monday through Friday from 8-5 p.m. and are open to adjusting their hours to suit their clients.
“We will be getting cable put in soon and hope to maybe host Friday night football games. We really want to be the place to go, so if a group would need us to open up one night or stay late, we would be willing to work with them,” said Jordan.
HeBrew will be serving coffee and bagels in the morning and during lunch, they will offer café style foods such as: salads, chicken salad sandwiches, soups and chili.
“We will offer lunch specials including sandwiches, chips, lemonade and tea for $5. I want to make sure it’s affordable but still quality,” said Jordan, “Our chicken salad is made from roasted chicken, not just canned.”
HeBrew is a passion project for the family involved with making the shop a reality.
“This has always been my daughter’s dream to open a coffee shop,” said Gail Jordan .
Chamber of Commerce President and Economic Development Director Stevi Thompson is excited for the restaurant to open along with other shops growing Downtown Ashburn.
“Today is the first day of business for one of Downtown Ashburn newest businesses. We are excited about this latest addition to Downtown as well as R&M Clothing and Accessories featuring the latest in women’s fashions. There are currently two more Boutique shops slated to open soon.” said Thompson.
This growth is a timely addition to celebrating #ShopSmallSaturday, a national movement to increase local and small business sales during the holiday season.
“I would like to encourage everyone to come out and support all of their downtown and local businesses to ensure their success.” said Thompson ###
