New Canal Street CC’s Coffee House To Offer Drive-Through Service, 1st On New Orleans Eastbank
NEW ORLEANS – We've had drive-through daiquiri shops for years but now New Orleanians finally have a drive-through coffee shop on the New Orleans Eastbank.
CC’s Coffee House licensee owners Anthony and Nicole Marullo’s new location at 2323 Canal St., across from the new Veterans Administration Hospital, is open for business and serving drive-through customers.
“In a city that invented the drive-through daiquiri shop, it makes no sense that there were no drive-through coffee shops on this side of the river,” co-owner Nicole Marullo said. “We expect 70 percent of our business will come from the drive-through window.”
The new 1,640 sf. CC’s store offers the full-line of CC’s coffees, teas and pastries, employs 18 employees and can serve up to 14 cars at an estimated three-minutes per order at peak times at its drive-through window. There are also 10 parking spaces for those who wish to linger longer, as well as an outdoor patio.
The new coffee shop cost approximately $750,000 to construct and is located near the United Medical Center, the Veterans Affairs Medical Complex and Warren Easton High School.
Anthony Marullo is the owner/ operator of the French Market Restaurant at 1001 Decatur St. in the French Quarter. His wife Nicole will supervise the day-to-day operations of the CC’s facility. The pair is considering opening more CC’s drive-through shops in Gentilly, east New Orleans and the Carrollton area.
Canal Street store hours are Monday – Saturday from 6:00 a.m. – 10:00 p.m. and Sunday from 7:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.
