Shine Coffee Will Become Rollover Doughnuts + Coffee

Posted By Rhette Baughman, Arizona Small Business Association, Tuesday, October 14, 2014

The owners of Shine Coffee and Short Leash Hot Dogs are happy to announce the transfer of ownership of Shine to Short Leash on October 1, 2014 for an undisclosed sum.  Short Leash is firing up a new concept – Rollover Doughnuts & Coffee – which will move into the Shine Coffee buildings on Vernon Avenue.  Short Leash owners – Kat & Brad Moore and Shine owners Laryn & Christiaan Blok have been friends since both owned a food truck version of their current businesses.  They have spent many an evening enjoying local fare while talking shop.  Over the summer (and a few bottles of wine ) the Moores and Bloks hatched a plan to make this transition.  


The Grand Opening of Rollover Doughnuts & Coffee will take place on October 4, 2014. 

Shine Coffee’s owners Laryn & Christaan Blok feel confident in handing off customers to a superb and experienced operation like Short Leash.  The newest concept from Short Leash is sure to be as exciting and delicious as Sit + Stay and Short Leash Hot Dogs food trucks.   The Bloks are looking forward to spending time on their next business venture. Vernon Avenue Pocket Park will continue to be cared for by the Rollover and the Bloks.
