Morrison’s existing business, Shake This, occupies 5,000 square feet and sells protein shake mixes to health clubs. While also roasting and selling beans to other coffee shops, Classic Rock Coffee’s menu includes coffee drinks – a 12-ounce latte is $3.25 – protein shakes and smoothies for $4.50, and food treats. Morrison said startup and relocation costs totaled $400,000, including $250,000 for Classic Rock Coffee Co., all funded by Shake This profits.
