Those looking for new coffee options will soon get their wish. Pax & Beneficia announced that they will be opening a new location in Plano’s Heritage Creekside development late this summer. The café will offer an array of teas, coffees and espresso drinks as well as unique items like Turkish Coffee. There will also be a food menu featuring both sweet and savory items.
“Pax & Beneficia translates from Latin to peace and blessings and extending our carefully curated experience to Plano is a dream realized for us,” co-founder Mouyyad Addulhadi says. “Heritage Creekside is surrounded by a unique community of corporate offices, residential areas, trails and retail, so we know we can continue our mission to bring varieties of people together.”
Addulhadi and his partner/close friend Mamdouh Khayat conceived of the idea while riding on a train in Norway. Their concept was to combine humanist values and artisan coffee in a manner that would bring different people and cultures together. They source coffee beans from around the globe including far-flung locales like Ethiopia, Kenya and Guatemala. The beans are roasted at Pax & Beneficia’s Grapevine roastery.
“Pax & Beneficia’s philosophy to provide a welcoming space for all aligns perfectly with Heritage Creekside’s live, work and play environment,” Rick Perdue, president or Heritage Creekside developer Rosewood Property Company, said. “We are always looking for just the right retail partners that will complement our existing mix of retailers and look forward to seeing them open their doors to the Plano community.”
This will be the fourth Pax & Beneficia’s Dallas area location. There are also cafes in downtown Fort Worth, Las Colinas and Grapevine.
