Frothy Monkey announces new location on Avenue of the Arts

(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) June 3, 2013—As Nashville celebrated its new Art community hot spot on June 1, 2013, Frothy Monkey announced its intention to open a fourth location on this block deemed the “Avenue of the Arts” on the newly revamped 5th Avenue in downtown Nashville, TN. In an event officially illuminating the block’s trademark light curtains, Mayor Karl Dean formally announced the addition of the new Frothy Monkey location in his remarks.

“We are well on our way to solidifying our new location,” states Ryan Pruitt, operating partner of Frothy Monkey. “We have been working on joining the Avenue of the Arts project for two years. We believe in the street, this project, and the vision that Anne Brown, Ron Gobbell, and Mayor Dean have worked so hard to bring to fruition. Now the work begins to make our vision for Frothy Monkey’s inclusion in the neighborhood a reality.”

This will be the third location Frothy Monkey will have opened in 2013 in their recent expansion efforts, and the fourth unique neighborhood concept in the Frothy family. The philosophy behind the Frothy Monkey brand is to introduce a breakfast through dinner experience to the neighbors who surround each of their locations. Though the customer demographic vary, there is a common thread of quality, local/regional food and beverage relationships, accessibility to customers, and the comfort of a traditional coffeehouse with an expanded menu of offerings from morning through the day and into the evening.

Frothy Monkey has signed a lease to inhabit the space at 235 5th Avenue North which sits across fromthe 5th Avenue entrance of the Arcade and directly between the Rymer and Tinney Galleries. “As Frothy Monkey continues to grows, the intent is to invest in areas where we can be a contributing neighbor,” explained Ryan. “The timing couldn’t be better”.
