Tunnel City: Now Serving Sweetwood Retirement Community

Tunnel City: Now Serving Sweetwood Retirement Community

Local partnership evolves out of residents’ regular trips to coffee shop

WILLIAMSTOWN — May 22, 2017 — One way to make residents feel at home at Sweetwood of Williamstown Retirement Living Community is for them to get their favorite coffee without having to drive to get to it. That’s why Tunnel City Coffee now serves residents coffee and pastries in their Sweetwood Café.

On the first floor of Sweetwood, directly across from the front entrance, a variety of homemade pastries and different blends of Tunnel City Coffee will be offered on a daily basis. The coffee will also be available during select events hosted by the community.

The demand was apparent when administrators noticed how many residents and how often they get together at the Spring Street coffee shop. While the staff enjoys seeing the same round table occupied by six to eight gentlemen enjoying a cup of specialty coffee every morning at 11 a.m., the group now has the opportunity do so in their own living quarters.
