It’s no secret that InFusion Coffee’s owners, Jocie Dye and Jason Huber, were trying to sell the shop. They have operated InFusion at 7133 Germantown Ave. since 2002. Earlier this month, the two announced they sold the coffee spot to two former Mt. Airy natives Jordan and Jane Shapiro. This week, Dye sent me this photo of the four of them together. I thought I would share this with you and my email exchange with her on why she sold the business.
WHY DID YOU WANT TO SELL INFUSION?
Jason and I have both been pulled in different directions for the past few years and we wanted to see InFusion continue in the community. We feel very proud of what we have created and know that there are many neighbors, including ourselves, who count on InFusion not only for their daily caffeine fix, but as a welcoming public space where they can meet, greet and work. Our goal was to find a way for InFusion to exist for years to come.
WHAT ARE YOU AND YOUR HUSBAND DOING AFTER THE SALE IS COMPLETED? YOU HAD TOLD ME THAT INFUSION WAS NOT YOUR DAY. WHAT IS IT THAT YOU DO?
You had told me that Infusion was not your day job. What is it that you do?
I currently work as a financial and database consultant for Roofmeadow, a local green roof-engineering consultancy. I will continue to do that work.
WHAT DOES YOUR HUSBAND DO?
Jason has taught middle school Humanities at Project Learn School for the past three years. He will continue to teach.
ARE JORDAN AND JANE (The new owners) FRIENDS OF YOURS GOING WAY BACK?
No, but they should be for all we have in common! We just met them through the process of trying to sell the store.
WHERE DO THEY LIVE NOW?
Jordan and Jane currently live in Roxborough, but both their boys go to schools in Mt. Airy.
