Millikin students brewing up business


DECATUR, Ill. (WAND) – Getting coffee at a local coffee shop in downtown Decatur just got a whole lot easier.

Blue Brew, the Millikin run coffee shop, is now open.

The business venture started with four Millikin business students launched a coffee shop at Hickory Point Back Building in downtown Decatur. During the one-week trial proved to be successful, so they decided to open a permanent location.

The grand opening was Monday morning.

Students will continue to run the business and it will give them a feel for what it’s like to run a food and drink business. They will also make all the decisions from what to sell, to how the point of sale interactions work
