A group of community leaders, business owners and neighbors came together at 6700 Germantown Ave. on Friday to celebrate the opening of the newest local venture by Mt. Airy native and coffee shop owner Meg Hagele.
Hagele opened High Point Café 10 years ago at 602 Carpenter Lane and became a local favorite for baked goods and coffee. She opened High Point Wholesale to keep up with demand.
High Point Wholesale functions as a coffee roasting facility, commercial bakery with a separate gluten-free kitchen. While the location is not a retail storefront, it will host special events such as tours and tastings.
“High Point Café and now High Point Wholesale have been true community endeavors. Mt. Airy is truly a unique place and the entire community has made High Point what it is. I am so excited to share our amazing new space with everyone who has helped to make it happen,” said Hagele of the community-supported business initiative.
High Point raised over $500,000 in equity investment from their customer base.
