Falls Road Store Closing after 10 years

Meg FS

Dear Friends,

It is with great sadness that we are closing the Filling Station Coffee Shop at the Falls Road location on September 30, 2011. For the past 10 years we have worked 7 days a week to serve this community. We are forever grateful for the friendships, love, loyalty, and kindness that we have received during this time. It is for these reasons and more that we worked tirelessly to keep the doors open, even through the tough economy, and remained a stronghold on the corner.

Nevertheless, our lease term has expired and we are unable to renegotiate rent with our landlord.

We hope that you continue to support our second location and make the Sparks Filling Station(14910 York Road, Sparks) a daily or weekend destination. The coffee, baked goods, soups, and breakfast sandwiches will remain of the highest quality as will the customer service. More importantly, we are working to open another location in the area to continue to serve this community. Please sign our guest book or join us on facebook to receive updates.

Similar to the Falls Road location, the Sparks Filling Station has beautiful outdoor seating. Come enjoy the large backyard area complete with trees and a stream. We have plenty of room and indoor seating as well. Bring a friend, sit back, relax, and even connect to the Internet with our free wifi service.

Again, thank you for all of your love and support.

Meg and The Filling Station Staff

Fall 2010

We are coming into another great Fall season at The Filling Station Coffee Shops.  Falls Road Location will be celebrating its ninth year and Sparks will be 4 years old!Thank you to all of our loyal coffee drinkers and supporters. Obviously, we couldn’t have done it with out you. We have some exciting renovations and changes coming up in the near future, so stay tuned. Come by either location and enjoy this beautiful Maryland  fall weather with a coffee and a scrumptious pastry. We will see you at The Legacy Chase.  Tickets are on sale now at both locations for The Legacy Chase at Shawan Downs.

Coffee Bliss

The other day I was working at the coffee shop on Falls Road when a young man entered for the first time. He really liked the store and asked me how I got into the coffee business. I didn’t hesitate to hold responsible my business partner, Meg.   That is when I realized we have been in business for over 7 years at our Falls Rd location, and 2+ years at the Sparks Station Coffee Shop on York Road.  Wow. It has been an amazing journey for us. We have met so many wonderful people in the community. There is a real sense of community for us since opening our coffee shops. To think we would have missed out on these blessings and life lessons.
