We have more exciting news to share about the growth of Kave Coffee Bar! NDS, Inc. is finalizing a partnership agreement with H.L. Beans Management Group, LLC of Stow OH, bringing onboard sole proprietor, Heather Ciranna, as our managing partner. She is also the owner and operator of Corner Cup Coffeehouse in Stow, and has taken over the management of daily operations of Kave.

Kave will be undergoing an interior renovation, and we will be CLOSED TEMPORARILY, starting Monday, Oct 1st. Our target re-opening will be the weekend of Nov 23rd, just in time for the Annual Winter Wonderland Festival! We are already excited to unveil aesthetic improvements to better utilize the space to provide a cozy atmosphere and more table space to “plug in” and work while enjoying the same quality products, as well as some new offerings. We will continue to be an outlet for local talent and culture, including the tradition of Thursday Open Mic nights, local performers, a monthly art display, and local wine pours. Our space’s evolution will also be aimed at providing a unique venue for small private events such as graduation parties, bridal/baby showers, business meetings, school groups, and even weddings.

The management restructuring and upcoming renovations by NDS continue to reiterate their commitment to Kave’s longevity and impact in the Barberton community. And Heather brings committed management oversight focused on cultivating relationships, supporting local ties, and providing a place where people can connect with each other. If you haven’t had the chance to meet her yet, she will be welcoming our patrons this weekend at the Mum Fest!

Stop by this weekend during our special event hours (Friday 7AM-10PM; Saturday 8AM-10PM; Sunday 10AM-5PM). Be sure to stay tuned to our social media these next 7 weeks as we provide updates on our progress. As always, we appreciate your support for local, and we look forward to serving you as we grow together!
