LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) --  Red Hot Roasters plans to add a second location next year on East Main Street in the budding Butcher Block development, the coffee shop’s owners said in a press release Monday.

For ten years, Red Hot Roasters has operated a drive-through window in the back of a gas station at 1403 Lexington Road.

The new location will be in a two-story house at 1007 E Main Street – part of the Butcher Block development undertaken by Butchertown Market owner Andy Blieden.

“Our new location in the Butcher Block is going to be a quirky, fun place to get a great cup of coffee,” said Sondra Powell, who co-owns Red Hot Roasters with her younger brother Jason, in a press release.

A permit has been obtained for renovations that will start soon, Powell said in a phone call Monday.

The Butchertown location will house the business’ roasting operations, sell pastries from Wiltshire Pantry and Ehrler’s Ice Cream; and have “an expanded food menu,” according to the press release.

It will also provide indoor and outdoor café seating – something Red Hot Roasters has lacked with its drive-up window off Lexington Road.

The Butchertown location will not have a drive-through, Powell said.

Powell said Red Hot Roasters will continue to operate the Lexington Road location after the Butchertown location opens.

Correction: A previous version of this story misspelled Sondra Powell's first name, "Sandra."
