Finally! The new Philz Coffee location on the southwest corner of 8th Street and Hope Avenue will officially open on August 12th. A handwritten sign has been posted on the front door. It reads, “Thank you for your patience Downtown Los Angeles. We’re looking forward to serving you starting August 12th. See you soon… Philz DTLA.” But why wait, there’s a free soft opening event on August 11th for DTLA locals.
The new DTLA location will be the coffee chain’s second Southern California location. The other SoCal store is located in Santa Monica. Philz Coffee is all the rage in the San Francisco area where they have 20+ stores.
A “Now Hiring” sign was posted at the DTLA location back in May. The company is all about coffee and customer service. Their website reads, “Our Mission is to better people’s day. We take this seriously and believe we have a very important job. Customers take time out of their day to visit us; this is very valuable to us and we are humbled by it. This gives us the opportunity to make a positive impact on our customer’s day. We do this by serving an amazing cup of coffee and delivering really great customer service. When this happens, our hope is that customers leave the Philz experience happier. We believe happy people are contagious, and the more happy people in the world the happier the world is. While we may not be able to make the world happy at once, we are determined to do it one community, one cup at a time.”
