Billy Kuhn, the former owner of His Place Auto Repair in Emmitsburg, has a new gig! He once saw a drive-up coffee stand in St. Michaels, Maryland, and thought it was a good idea. Not long ago, he had a “wake up call” in the middle of the night with a plan that jolted him out of his sleep. In that early morning instant, at exactly 2:36 a.m., he knew the name of the company, the logo, and the slogan.

The Bear Bear Coffee venture has come to life, where customers “Don’t hibernate, they caffeinate!” A grand opening was held July 1, 2021.

Kuhn chose a location in Littlestown, Pennsylvania, at the intersection of Columbus Avenue and Baltimore Street.

“The traffic is great here,” Billy said. The trailer is neighbors to an ice cream trailer and a Rutters. It’s a hit!

A full menu of products include Chesapeake Bay Roasting Co. coffees, iced coffees, espressos, lattés, as well as Two Leaves brand iced teas and hot teas, plus smoothies, and seasonal items.

Bear Bear’s caffeinated customer base is growing fast and showing their excitement on Facebook, with Bear Bear’s number of followers growing by leaps and bounds.

Check out BearBearCoffee on Facebook or BearBearCoffeeTrailer on Instagram to join the Bear Bear sleuth. Soon you can visit online (under development now) to see the menu. Drive up, walk up, or order online for Bear Bear Coffee!

Emmitsburg has a new face in town, with Mason Dixon Mixin shaking up how we see sweets.

Mason Dixon Mixin’s grand-opening weekend kicked off with a bang on Saturday, June 19, putting a new spin on healthy gourmet shakes.

Excited first-time customers packed the house, eager to try some of the team’s fun new drinks.

From energy teas to decadent red-velvet smoothies, the variety of options is vast and there is something for the whole family. With over 40 flavors to enjoy, you may never run out of sweet options to perk up your morning.

The group prides themselves on making picturesque smoothies and drinks with health-boosting effects, and Emmitsburg’s premier juice bar is ready to take off. All of their smoothies are under 250 calories, have 24g of plant-based protein, are low in sugar/carbs, and have 21 essential vitamins and minerals in them. They are nutritious and delicious!

Mason Dixon Mixin is located at 101 Silo Hill Road in Emmitsburg. You can catch them throughout the week, from 6:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturdays.
