The Local to open second coffee shop inside BlankSpace

The Local, a coffee shop on Gage Boulevard in Kennewick, will be opening a second location inside BlankSpace in December.

BlankSpace owner Olivia Berg announced the news Nov. 7 on her business’ Facebook page.

“We are absolutely thrilled to be part of bringing a high-end coffee experience to the Southridge area (and taking latte art pics 24/7). Keep an eye out for their opening date,” she wrote.

BlankSpace is a gathering place and venue for events, creative workshops and pop-up shops, located at 5453 Ridgeline Drive near Trios Hospital in Kennewick.

The Local will replace Karma Juice, currently located inside BlankSpace.

The raw juice bar instead will deliver its juices to residential and business customers, which it did for a year before moving into BlankSpace in September 2016.

Karma Juice owner Kati Gessner said plans are under way to roll out a vintage juice trailer in the spring.

“There will be no more deliveries but we’ll go mobile four times a week at different locations throughout the Tri-Cities. Customers can check social media and see where we’ll be,” she said.

The model will allow for better home-life balance for the mom of four kids.

“I just need to balance what I love to do and my family a little better. I really think the juice trailer will give me that flexibility. It’s a lot of work to have brick-and-mortar,” she said.

Karma Juice’s last day in BlankSpace is Nov. 30.
