Blume Organics is a café and lunch spot located off of Highway 54, near The Bridge. It is known by students as a go-to after-school spot for hanging out and studying.
Throughout the pandemic, they adapted by taking away dine-in dishes, and mugs, and required employees to wear masks.
“The mask mandate definitely affected how we interacted with our customers at the beginning of the pandemic,” Blume employee Maggie Phillips said. Now that the restrictions have become more relaxed, it is so nice to greet our customers with a sweet “Hey, y’all!” followed by a sweet smile, and to see them smile back!”
They have also been a long-time supporter of Fayette County Schools. During last year’s teacher appreciation week, they donated coffee, tea, and treats to Rising Starr Middle School.
The environment at Blume is what makes it so special. From the music they play to the friendliness of the employees, it always feels cozy and welcoming.
“I absolutely love the environment at my work! It is a huge blessing to be surrounded by such uplifting and incredible coworkers and customers,” Phillips said. “I also love that we have music playing, whether it’s soft 50’s, worship, or jack johnson!”
Despite the struggles of the pandemic, business is thriving thanks to the support of loyal customers.
