Buisness Spotlight: Come get your coffee on the go

There will be a new mobile coffee shop opening up July 1 uptown. Zoe and Quinn Olson are opening Boler Coffee Co. in the curling rink parking lot.

Zoe says she and her husband are excited about this new venture.

“Our biggest goal is to build community through good coffee.”

They bought the Boler trailer from a friend in Fernie who used it for a mobile business but they plan to keep it parked at the rink. They will be using local suppliers and their menu will include all the fancy coffees plus iced coffee options, fun drinks for the kids including ‘honey steamers,’ granola bars, and bakery items (muffins, scones, cookies, and loaves) from Little Red Hen bakery.

The Olsons moved to Salmon Arm four years ago. He is a teacher and she has a private counselling practice.

To contact Boler Coffee, call 250-463-1165, or find them on Instagram or Facebook.
