[PERK UP] Indie Coffee Shop Daily Dose Destined For Madison Yards This Fall

An independent coffee shop has been added to the lineup at Madison Yards in Reyoldstown.  Daily Dose by The Merchant, a coffee shop created by entrepreneur Dan Collier, will open along Bill Kennedy Way in the Publix/AMC Theatres-anchored mixed-use development.  The approximately 1,250 square foot coffee shop will feature freshly brewed coffee, as well as bagged beans from Portland's Stumptown Coffee for sale.  The shop will also feature baked goods from Alon's and a curated selection of retail goods from Collier's The Merchant.  

The opening of Daily Dose at Madison Yards marks an evolution of sorts for the local concept first launched as a pop-up at Buckhead's Lenox Square this past fall.  Daily Dose opened last September and occupied a portion of the former Sprinkles at the front of Lenox Square before closing at the end of March.  Their former space as well as several others around and above it were combined into what is expected to be a new two level flagship Apple store.

Daily Dose joins gourmet ice cream shop and gift store Four Fat Cows, Taqueria Tsunami, Marlow's Tavern, and Girl Diver from Richard Tang as locally owned food concepts at the development.  Many neighbors in the up and coming intown neighborhood had seemed generally displeased with what had been announced as a largely chain-centric project by Fuqua Development. 

Dan Collier hopes to be the local option neighbors choose to patronize. Daily Dose is, of course, not alone in the Reynoldstown community when it comes to locally owned coffee shops, with dog-friendly ParkGrounds and Muchacho among the existing neighborhood coffee options.  

In addition to Daily Dose, Collier is also opening a relocated Buckhead location of The Merchant, formerly in Lenox Square, slated to debut in the fall in Buckhead Market Place.  Daily Dose should open not long after The Merchant's debut.  

In addition to numerous The Merchant locations, Collier also operates Archer Paper Goods, with locations in Ponce City Market, The Battery Atlanta and Athens, Collier Candy Company at Ponce City Market, Sweet Inman's Candies at Krog Street Market and Read Shop at Vinings Jubilee.  Collier's retail businesses all fall under his umbrella company, The Daniel Richards Group.

I wish them luck and I hope they succeed, I'm glad to have a more local business in Madison Yards. I walk past this location several times a week doing errands, including getting groceries at the new Publix. I don't think I'll patronize this coffee shop, unfortunately. The image looks a bit stuffy for this neighborhood, and if I can get a canned cold brew at Publix for cheaper than a coffee here, I'll do it. I'm also a long-time Park Grounds customer, and that's where I tend to go when I want to splurge on coffee.
