Meet Shannon Sloop, the owner of RendezBrew in Indian Land, South Carolina.
Shannon and her husband opened RendezBrew in Bridgemill Commons Shopping Center earlier this year after Shannon's sister, who owns a daycare in the same shopping center, told her the developer was looking for a coffee shop to put there.
Initially, the developer had a chain restaurant in mind, but Shannon had always planned to one day open a coffee shop and she had a specific business model in mind.
Drawing on her years working in the service industry, she envisioned a concept that not only served coffee, but also great food and alcoholic beverages.
RendezBrew's coffee is a special blend locally sourced from Dilworth Coffee in Charlotte. They carry several local beers on tap and they have a slushy that's very popular in the Summer - there's a version that contains alcohol as well as a virgin version.
Sloop is also passionate about plants and art, both of which you'll notice when you first enter the store.
When we filmed the video in July, there were pieces of art from Indian Land High School's AP art class. Sloops plans to rotate art from different local artists in from time to time.
There is also a great variety of plants throughout the restaurant, including my favorite, the 30-year-old "Dr. Seuss" tree near the front entrance.
In addition to drinks, RendezBrew's menu includes delicious bagels, avo toast, and paninis which are perfect for dinner or lunch.
As Sloop stated in our video interview, RendezBrew is a great place to start or finish your day, to hang out and work, and even for a first date when you're not really sure what the other person likes.
So make plans to visit RendezBrew in Indian Land, South Carolina, located in Bridgemill Commons Shopping Center on Rt 521.
