French Truck Adds Two More to the Fleet


Editorial Policy

Published on

[F]rench Truck Coffee is getting ready to fuel the entire city of New Orleans. The roastery and burgeoning coffee chain has called the Big Easy home since its inception back in 2012, when owner Geoffrey Meeker started the company out of his own laundry room. French Truck has now announced that it will add another two cafés to its existing five locations, three of which are already in New Orleans. The first location is scheduled to open this November in a former CC’s Coffee House on Magazine Street. The second location, a cozy, 2,700-square-foot café in the city’s downtown area, is slated to open in early 2019. Both cafés will be designed by local firm, Colectivo, and feature French Truck’s classic blue-and-yellow color scheme.
