Patrick Dempsey Buys Seattle Coffee Chain
Patrick Dempsey has bought a coffee chain. The Grey's Anatomy actor outbid competitors including Starbucks to buy Seattle-based Tully's Coffee through his company Global Baristas LLC.
Declaring victory over Starbucks on Twitter, he wrote, "We met the green monster, looked her in the eye, and...SHE BLINKED! We got it! Thank you Seattle! (sic)." He added, "I'm thrilled that we won and I'm even more excited about saving Tully's Coffee and its hundreds of jobs."
Tully's Coffee, which also has stores in Washington and California, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in October. Recently, cycling made Patrick reveal his dreams of opening a cycling shop where other riders can go to hang out: "I'd love to open a bike shop in Mailbu that's a hangout for cyclists. There's nothing like that out there."
