The Coffee Roost was awarded the Laurens County Chamber of Commerce Small Business of the 4th Quarter Award. Peg and Martin Cwiakala, along with their team members Raymond Macht and Tim Davis, accepted the award at the December 18th Chamber Board Meeting. The Coffee Roost is a coffee shop located inside of the Artist’s Coop (113 E Laurens Street, Laurens). With their fairly new business, the Cwiakalas have quickly become large supporters of the community by giving back through donations and time, as well as by creating community minded events such as poetry and game nights at the Roost. Be sure to stop by to congratulate them and enjoy a cup of coffee and smiles!
