Order & Chaos Coffee will open to the public in August at Baltimore’s top ad agency’s new office location on Key Highway
BALTIMORE (June 1, 2016) — Java junkies, hungry neighbors, and caffeinated creatives will soon have a new place to get their fix. Planit, Baltimore’s top communications, marketing and interactive agency, plans to open a fresh, forward-thinking coffee destination in August at the site of its newly renovated office space at 1414 Key Highway. Order & Chaos Coffee will be open to both Planit employees and the public, offering jolts of caffeine and creative in a one-of-a-kind environment.
The 1,100-square-foot shop will serve gourmet coffee, espresso, cappuccino, teas and an assortment of light fare. This comes after Planit’s announcement last August to renovate a historic building in the Key Highway business district with a custom design for its new office space.
“Planit’s upcoming move to South Baltimore inspired us to discover how we can continue to connect with the community and make our mark in more ways than one,” said Matt Doud, president and co-founder of Planit. “The Order & Chaos Coffee brand emerged from the desire to generate a new, local spot for neighbors and commuters to relax and recharge in an atmosphere that reflects the energizing and creative culture of Planit.”
Planit appointed Ryan Herzing to serve as general manager of Order & Chaos Coffee. Herzing has nearly 10 years of experience in the hospitality industry. Most recently, he served as general manager of Roti Mediterranean Grill in Washington, D.C. Prior to that, he was area supervisor for Venti Tre Modern Italian, operating the restaurant’s Baltimore and Gaithersburg locations.
“Coffee fuels our creative process, and coffee shops and cafes have traditionally served as hubs for collaboration and inspired thinking,” said Ed Callahan, co-founder and creative strategist at Planit. “As we continue to build cult followings for our clients’ brands, we thought it would be fitting to extend our agency into this stimulating community venture, and Order & Chaos Coffee was borne out of that vision.”
Order and Chaos Coffee selected Pfefferkorn Coffee, Inc, a family-operated roasting company that’s been supplying Baltimore with premium coffee since 1900, to create custom blends of aromatic, smooth brews. Order & Chaos Coffee plans to open its doors in August 2016.
