Rep. Fritts Honors Coffee Crush for May Local Business Highlight

For his May 2023 local business highlight, State Representative Bradley Fritts (R-Dixon) chose to highlight Coffee Crush in Dixon. Rep. Fritts spent time touring the business and presented the owners with a certificate of appreciation for their contributions to the community.

“This month, I chose to honor Coffee Crush because they offer a welcoming space for our community to gather while providing incredible products and friendly service,” said Rep. Fritts. “As a frequent visitor to Coffee Crush myself, I truly appreciate their dedication to giving back to the area in many ways, such as contributing donations to local fundraisers and organizations.”

Coffee Crush was founded in 2019 by Shelly Brantley. After a long career in social services, Shelly wanted to help her community in another way. She decided to open a coffee shop after noticing there were no other drive-thru coffee shops in Dixon. Located directly across from Dixon High School, Shelly wanted to offer a space for high school and college-aged students to meet with friends, study for classes, or just grab a coffee before or after school.

Rep. Fritts continued, “I also commend them for their fight to stay open during the pandemic, which happened not long after opening their doors. Coffee Crush not only stayed open but has continued to thrive by giving our community a much-needed space to enjoy a great cup of coffee.”
