To local business owners: Please be warned that the Pueblo Mall is perhaps NOT a good location for local business. Your shop, no matter how successful, is subject to being instantly replaced by a national chain. There is no real protection from this and very little you can do about it afterward. We will miss our friends at the Pueblo Mall.
Solar Roast does still maintain a location on the CSU Pueblo campus in addition to its flagship downtown store.
Mike says the brothers are about six weeks away from installing solar panels on their downtown building, which will make the business 100 percent solar and carbon neutral upon completion.
Also, he says Helios 5, the next generation roaster being designed by David, remains in the works.
