A revolution that treats people like people – that makes them feel warmed, loved, and important, all before they take a sip of the best drink in town.
And it’s not just kindness and coffee that we sell at 7 Brew. We are cranking out delicious infused energy drinks, Italian sodas, smoothies, teas, and more like NWA has never seen.
The dream came alive in February 2017 with our first store in Rogers, AR, and the best is yet to come!
In the early 90’s, Oregon native Ron Crume saw a growing community in Northwest Arkansas but a lack of coffee shop options that his family was used to on the West Coast. Ron was preoccupied building custom homes in Holiday Island, Arkansas, but the idea for 7 Brew Coffee never left his mind.
2008 saw the Crume family back in southern Oregon where Ron owned Northwest Alloys, a foundry and machine shop. All along, the vision of an amazing drive-thru coffee shop in NWA was becoming increasingly clear.
Ron wanted a delicious coffee experience that was fast, consistent, and positive. He wanted to expand the usual coffee shop drinks to include Italian sodas, flavor-infused energy drinks, real fruit smoothies, and much more. But more than anything else, Ron wanted to create a coffee culture that was always energetic, upbeat, fun, and welcoming to everyone.
A Crume family visit to Arkansas in 2015 revived the coffee dream, and Ron started taking steps to make it happen. But he wasn’t alone! Ron’s wife Lisa, their boys Jordan and Joel, their daughters Jerrine and Jaylen, Jerrine’s husband, Brandon and their children, Jayla, Brody, and Ryen, and Jaylen’s daughter, Jaycee were along for the ride!
And so in August of 2016, the Crume/Henson families packed up their lives and moved across the country – after a delayed flight, a teething toddler, a few flat tires, and a car/deer collision. Before long, construction began on the 7 Brew buildings and the dream was coming alive.
We’re excited to welcome YOU into this crazy family of ours and bring the coffee revolution to Northwest Arkansas and beyond.
