Voltage Coffee Project Expands

By Kristen Tribe Wise County Messenger

The Decatur Economic Development Corp. board Wednesday approved a performance agreement with Voltage Coffee Project to expand Trinity Street Coffee Bar and move its coffee roasting business into the space. 

Voltage Coffee Project is owned by Matt Fisher, and it includes Trinity Street here in Decatur, Kimzey’s in Argyle and West Oak Coffee Roasters and West Oak Coffee, both in Denton.

Under terms of the agreement, a minimum of $1.75 million will be spent to remodel and improve the property, and the EDC will provide $300,000 for the project. By March 31, 2020, Voltage will have employed eight full-time employees at the new business, and within five years, it will have 15.

Fisher told the Messenger the business doesn’t have a name yet, but it will house the manufacturing side of the business – the roasting company, the corporate offices, a retail store and restaurant. The roasting company and corporate offices are currently in Denton.

Fisher said the roasting company has outgrown its space in Denton, and since his family has moved to Decatur, it was logical to move a larger part of the business here, too.

“Selfishly, I’m building a house a half-mile away. This is my community and home, but at the same time I just really like the direction Decatur is going,” he said. “We’re not trying to grow Decatur like Denton. That’s actually why my family moved away from Denton.”

Fisher said the building next door to Trinity was empty so they started considering how they could revitalize it in a cool way.

“There will be several things happening there, but primarily what we’re excited about is the food aspect of it and all the seating,” he said.

The menu will likely feature sliders with a list of regular items, plus seasonal and special ones available throughout the year. Fisher said they will also offer breakfast sliders. The restaurant will feature a bar with 15 beers on tap, and patrons will be able to also watch the coffee roasting process through large windows.

“The roasters themselves are really pretty, and we want people to see what we’re doing back there,” he said.

The metal structure behind 112 North Trinity Street will be torn down and a new structure with a rooftop patio will be built in its place. As part of the remodel, Fisher said they will create access from inside Trinity Street to the new business.

Fisher noted their relationship with the community and partnership with the city has exceeded their expectations. The EDC’s performance agreement with Voltage will be presented to Decatur City Council Monday night for final approval.
