Today we’d like to introduce you to Edoardo Chavarin.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
My partners John Juniper and Jeff Solorio used to drive by the old 1940’s Texaco station for many years, but the property was never available. They always thought the iconic building would make a great Coffee shop for commuters like them.
John, Jeff and I have been good friends for some years now, and we had been playing with the idea of doing something together when the building became available about a year and a half ago it was a no-brainer. We worked really hard and really fast on pitching the idea of Full Service Coffee Co. to the property owners.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It wasn’t the easiest ride. Our beautiful 1940’s building definitely needed some work done. We worked hard to bring it up to code and make sure the city was ok with everything, and we also had to make sure we preserved its original aesthetic as much as possible.
Please tell us about Full Service Coffee Co.
We know LA can get a bit crazy and a lot of people are on a tight schedule. Our goal is to serve an amazing cup of coffee for the Los Angeles commuters. Beverly Blvd connects Hollywood to Downtown LA, so there are about a million commuters every month.
We also have plenty of space for anyone that wants to hang out and take their time. We serve amazing donuts (vegan donuts available too) and some great Croissants.
Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
A good memory from childhood was definitely being creative and building things. My brothers and I used to play with legos a lot.
Being involved with a project like full-service definitely brings back some of those old fun memories. It’s definitely a dream come true to get to restore and work with an iconic building like our 1940’s gas station.
