A new local spot, Order&Chaos Coffee offers customers insight into agency life
BALTIMORE (October 7, 2016) — Planit, Baltimore’s top communications, marketing and interactive agency, today announced the grand opening of Order&Chaos Coffee, a bold, creative coffee shop destination formed from the entrepreneurial vision of the agency’s co-founders, on Monday, October 10. Emulating a vibe indicative of the award-winning agency and how it operates, Order&Chaos Coffee’s black and white insignia can be easily spotted from Key Highway in South Baltimore. This announcement comes after Planit’s recent move in May from its Pratt Street location to its newly renovated office space at 1414 Key Highway.
“We continuously strive to create an atmosphere that strategically facilitates the right kind of creative thinking that leads to something innovative and remarkable,” said Matt Doud, president and co-founder of Planit. “Order&Chaos takes this concept to a new level where employees can break away, open their minds and reinvent. And what better way to collaborate than over a cup of coffee?”
In addition to offering a new place for Planit employees to recharge, Order&Chaos Coffee’s floor-to-ceiling interior glass walls will provide customers with a transparent view inside the agency’s collaborative work environment. Planit also plans to frequently survey customers for useful consumer insights that may be incorporated into strategic campaigns for its clients.
“Order&Chaos lives as an actual extension of our agency and we see a real opportunity to connect with the neighborhood and literally provide a glimpse into our creative world,” said Ed Callahan, co-founder and creative strategist at Planit. “It also gives us the opportunity to learn more about consumers, test concepts and ideas and receive public opinions. Advertising is a stimulating industry and we hope guests will stop by to find out what we’re up to behind the glass walls.”
Open to both the public and Planit employees, Order&Chaos Coffee will serve gourmet hot and cold brew coffees, espressos, cappuccinos, lattes, teas and several varieties of smoothies. Pfefferkorn, a local family-operated roasting company that’s been supplying Baltimore with premium coffee since 1900, was selected to develop custom coffee blends exclusive to the coffee shop. Order&Chaos Coffee will also feature the only innovative, professional grade Slayer espresso maker in the Baltimore area, with superior steam capacity, enhanced temperature stability and state-of-the-art extraction control for fine-tuned espressos. In addition to premium beverages, Order&Chaos will offer specialty Liége waffles and other café food items.
“Roasting coffee has always been a passion of mine so having the opportunity to work with a respected brand as unique and bold as Planit is an incredible experience,” said Ryan Herzing, General Manager of Order&Chaos Coffee. “I’m looking forward to really seeing Order&Chaos come to life and growing the shop into a neighborhood staple.”
Order&Chaos Coffee currently staffs 11 employees with plans to expand in the future. For more information, please visit www.orderchaoscoffee.com.
