Providence, RI – Paolino Properties is excited to announce that local café chain Brewed Awakenings will open its newest location at 100 Westminster Street on June 1.
The new downtown location will be called “Brewed Awakenings Bistro & Café” and will feature an expanded menu and bar designed specifically for a downtown clientele. It will also provide catering, take-out, delivery, and a robust online ordering system.
“I’m thrilled that an establishment as beloved and homegrown as Brewed Awakenings will be opening a new location in our building during this incredibly challenging time,” said Joseph R. Paolino Jr., Managing Partner of Paolino Properties. “This goes to show that not only is economic recovery from this crisis a possibility, but growth and expansion is achievable too.”
Brewed Awakenings Bistro & Café is poised to create approximately 20 new jobs initially, with the possibility of 10 additional jobs as the economy continues to reopen. Levesque said he is looking to bring back some employees from his other locations who had been laid off due to the pandemic, and that new positions are still available for interested applicants.
“We are proud to be able to operate our sixth location in downtown Providence,” said David Levesque, owner and founder of Brewed Awakenings. “As employees begin to return to work, we know they will appreciate a bit of normalcy in their everyday routine. Nothing speaks to that more than a morning cup of coffee.” He added, “We believe that customers will appreciate take-out and delivery options, now more than ever. And as time goes on, I look forward to the chance to offer a high-quality, reasonably-priced in-house dining experience.”
There will be a mix of indoor seating both inside the restaurant space and inside the main lobby of 100 Westminster Street, as well as outdoor seating options on the patio on Westminster Street. All seating will adhere to social distance protocols. All patrons must also wear a face covering or mask, as mandated by state regulations.
Brewed Awakenings Bistro & Café will occupy the space formerly occupied by Nicks on Westminster, which closed in March due to the pandemic.
