    Pam Noah quit her job as a social worker in Perham in November, but started work on a new coffeehouse on the northside of Detroit Lakes not long after. She and her husband, Mike, own the building.

    When Pam Noah quit her 12-year job in November, it only took her a couple of weeks to decide on a new career: barista. There was already empty space in the same building next to Michaels furniture, which she and husband Mike own, and having grown up on the north side of Detroit Lakes, it was the perfect location for a coffee shop with all the bells and whistles: gifts, espresso, sandwiches, drive through, indoor and outdoor seating. After signing the paperwork to get started on Jan. 1,

    The Social Cup opened for business just over six months later, on June 15, with roaring success. At one point on opening morning, Noah said there were 20 people sitting in the cushy leather chairs drink-ing coffee and chatting with friends a solid start by any measure and the steady customer flow continued all week. Since she decided to start slow and not advertise the space right away, Noah said she had no idea what to expect during those first few days, especially since she and Mike have no experience in the food industry (although, her em-

    ployees do). But despite the unpredictable nature, Noah said shes looking forward to a job that is less stressful and differ-ent from what her days have consisted of for the last 12 years. Noah was a social worker (thats how The Social Cup got its name get it?) in the Perham school district do-ing group therapy under Lakeland Mental Health, and said the environment had simply gotten too stressful and, in some ways, dangerous for her to stay in her posi-tion. She said she thought about going back to school for an advanced degree, but decided against it, wanting some-thing that was less stressful and more carefree. This atmosphere has got to be more pleasant than deal-ing with abused kids and their parents, she said. Opening a coffee shop in that location had been an op-tion for a while, she said, but I really enjoyed my job, and it never quite felt like the right time. She and Mike had used the space as storage for mat-tresses not on display at their furniture stores. They also own Noahs in Detroit Lakes. The first opening date was originally going to be in March, Pam Noah said, and then April, and then finally in June. We started out with the idea of being pretty small and simple, but that expanded and it ended up being a bit more work, she said. As with anything, plans get a little out of control.

    Still, Noah said theres nothing Id do differently. Much of the area is fraught with memories not only did Noah grow up on the north side, but her brother used to work in the meat department when the space was Evans grocery store. This whole building has history to me, she said. Im still using the swing-in doors from the meat de-partment. They had been moved and were sitting in storage. Since the building also houses the furniture store and Curves on the other end, Noah considers it a great loca-tion. Its nice because people can go furniture shopping, and then come over here and mull it over, and Curves is right there, she said. Some of the ladies sound like theyre ex-cited to have a place up here, and Im trying to have fresh, healthy food every day. And even though the north side of Detroit Lakes isnt exactly a burgeoning metropolis of growth, Noah is happy to bring some life up. If our furniture store and Curves wasnt here, if I didnt grow up here, I would be concerned, she said. I dont like to see it looking so bleak, so if it sparks anything in anyone, I feel good about that. What about opening a small business during a reces-sion? I was (concerned), and I am, still, probably, but at the same time, coffee is coffee, and its one of those things that people still drink during bad times, she said. I remember walking in the mall or around other coffee shops, and although people might cut back on food or other things, the lines for coffee are still long, so thats encouraging. As business gets going, she said shell look into expand-ing services, like wine and cheese in the evenings, renting out the 50-person-capacity space for small parties, or tak-ing bulk coffee orders for area workplaces. Right now, though, The Social Cup offers a full coffee house menu, with hot and cold brews, smoothies, blended coffees, Italian sodas, tea, chai, fresh-baked pastries ev-ery morning, sandwiches, salads, and wi-fi.
