Zion Coffee bringing new social experience to the Heights

Local News

PEORIA HEIGHTS, Ill. — A local coffee company has announced an expansion.

Zion Coffee is expanding into Peoria Heights, with a new experience featuring its signature coffee, craft cocktails and small plates: Zion Social. It’s set to be an extension of the Zion Coffee Bar, located in the Warehouse District, that opened in early 2017.

Zion Social is designed as “the place to meet” in Peoria Heights, Zion co-owners and husband and wife Mike and Banu Hatfield explained. It is located at 4616 N Prospect Road.

“We are thrilled to be joining the thriving business community in Peoria Heights at a time when so many exciting developments are being launched,” said Mike Hatfield.  “When we considered locations for our new concept, the Heights was a perfect choice based on its longstanding reputation for unique food and dining experiences.”

Banu said the expansion will remain committed to exceptional experiences and the focus on hospitality.

The company launched in December 2013 with online coffee subscriptions. As the company has grown, the Hatfields and other employees have visited central American coffee farmers with whom they do business with. They most recently went to Guatemala in February.

The duo has also been talking about possibly opening up a third location in the future.

Zion Social is expected to open in early 2020.
