Patrons of a popular breakfast spot located in the land of the Tiger blue and gray could soon be seeing double.
The restaurant, which is run on the principles of food, family, community and church, is owned and operated by Jonathan Koplin, his wife Pauline, daughter Sarah and son Patrick.
The nationally recognized Memphis breakfast joint wants to take the current restaurant structure “another step” with the new site, Jonathan said.
“It would be a restaurant, bakery, coffee roasting—might do some training out there again,” he said.
The “training” is a reference to a nonprofit program Brother Juniper’s started in 2000 called Juniper Bakery, which taught at-risk youth how to make artisan breads. Jonathan said the program lasted three or four years, before they passed it along to another organization.
Community service is and always has been at the forefront of the Brother Juniper’s business model.
