The Root, an exciting new coffee spot, is a Lubbock original. It's created as a non-profit aimed at helping the Lubbock community with its proceeds.

They will feature gourmet coffees and cafe eats with a drive-thru window. They're looking forward to actively participating with and contributing to important Lubbock causes to help the community.

"A coffee shop is a great tool for that," Chris White, The Root General Manager, told us, "It brings people together, brings community, creativity, all kinds of things like that happen in a coffee shop."

You can hear the full interview with White, along with a photo gallery of pictures of the construction work in progress as they move to an opening date in the beginning of June, in the video above.

We're sure looking forward to this wonderful new coffee shop getting off the ground and wish them all the best in their new venture.
