The story of John, Courtney, and little Henry investing in Martin, TN.
02/28/2021

The story of John, Courtney, and little Henry investing in Martin, TN.

The story of how Martin's - Coffee & Bakery was started and our investment in Martin, Tennessee.
We have a lot of new people following the page so I thought I would re-introduce ourselves! My name is John, I am married to the lovely Courtney, and our little barista's name is Henry.
Both Courtney and I come from missionary backgrounds, my family is currently serving as missionaries in Nepal. Giving back to our community and working to make a difference is at the core of what our shop is built upon.
Courtney and I met at UTM in 2013 and quickly fell in love with each other and the downtown of Martin, Tennessee. We got married in December 2015 at The Lindell in Martin. We purchased 407 South Lindell Street in October 2016 to house our wedding company and marketing business. Soon after we started remodeling, Courtney had the idea of opening Martin's Coffee and Bakery! Courtney had been a teacher with Obion County schools from fall 2015 until Spring 2018. Courtney wanted to run a coffee shop for a living and I was determined to create that for her. In August 2017 we opened our first coffee shop! Over the next 4 years, we would start 5 other businesses and purchase a second downtown building which is now being rented by Lala's boutique and Skyhawk Nutrition. We also started a number of partnerships one of them being a second coffee shop in Huntington, TN called The 1822 Coffee Co. After 6 months we turned over the management to our partners and sold our shares of The 1822. We then used this momentum to remodel our kitchen and offer a new oven-toasted lunch and increase our bakery so we could fulfill larger bulk orders. We have big plans for both of our buildings although we have had some issues with the city of Martin, the local paper, and the historic zoning commission that have put many of our plans on hold, we are still preparing for future development with service-based businesses in Martin in hopes of driving more traffic to the historic downtown that we fell in love back in 2013.
We truly feel honored to serve Martin. We so thankful that God has opened up the doors He has for us to be in the business work we are in and to employ so many amazing people. It's truly a blessed life, and we could not be more grateful.

Downtown Martin has been without power for close to an hour now.
Does anyone know who to talk to, to get the city to invest in fixing its power problem? This happens often in Martin. I feel like this would be the first thing that the city needs to invest in to bring economic growth.

10/31/2020

There's this flood of joy I get every time I step into a pumpkin patch. Every pumpkin or squash is different with their own lovably ugly bumps and wrinkles. Little kids are getting stuck in the middle of a pumpkin pile and proud parents are snapping pictures with the purpose of one who remembers being there herself not too long ago. Time passes so quickly-- maybe not quick enough this 2020--and we have to force ourselves to wrangle in the chaos, charge the batteries, find a clean shirt, wipe away the boy's snot bubble and get the shot! Otherwise, the season will turn like it always does and we will have missed our chance for this year's pumpkin patch family picture. Happy Halloween, folks! Thank you so much for supporting our business. I absolutely love seeing y'all come into the shop and make your own memories. It is the joy of my life. Thank you for it!
Much love, Courtney 🖤

Tea with John

Tune in to Tea with John where we talk about the interworkings of the city and how we can make real change, also we talk about tea.
In this episode, we fully go over the recent article written in the Weakley County Press. We walk through the article breaking it down and asking some easy questions. We also cover why the city has yet to release public records and talk about some of my favorite tea to drink!

Breaking news! Martin’s coffee and bakery has just issued an apology to the local paper and the historic zoning board that they claimed to be bias!
Let us know what you think about this turn of events in the comments below!

“Guys, we want to apologize.
This is not easy for us to admit but we were just sent proof that the splash pad located in Historic Martin has indeed been historic all of this time. A lot of the bias and corruption that we highlight centers around the double standards that the city and the local paper have. With new proof that was just sent to us, we simply don't have any grounds to stand on. I want to thank everyone for your support but we have been proven wrong. It was right for the city to ban our string lights even though another business still has them up in downtown. It was just and fair for the board to ban the pro-bono mural that celebrates the Centennial of women's suffrage.
I am glad the city won the battle of keeping all of the buildings in the same historic architectural style with the building of the new library.”

Here are a few quick questions that the Weakley County Press is not answering about the article they have written. 1. Ho...
07/15/2020

Here are a few quick questions that the Weakley County Press is not answering about the article they have written.

1. How is a business (la Cabana) approved by the board to have a balcony when business "looking to be unique, they should not locate a business in a historically zoned area”. No other businesses have balconies.
2. Would you consider the fact a new multi-million dollar library is unique to the architecture of the historic downtown?
3. I own the business you are talking about, why did you not list our names or the name of our business?
4. Why was it not mentioned that the mural was a pro-bono mural that celebrates the centennial of women's suffrage?
5. The subcommittee was formed by the person that claims of bias were made against. Other members that also were claimed to be bias and conflicts of interest served on the board. Why was that not disclosed?
6. There is a month of missing zoom meetings (May 23, 2020 to July 5, 2020.) that are being withheld from the public. Is there a reason why the local paper is not covering or demanding it? Governor Bill Lee’s executive order No. 51 extended Orders No. 16 and 34 regarding Tennessee’s Open Meetings Act. It requires local governments and their committees and commissions that their meetings may be held electronically via teleconference March through July due to COVID and social distancing. Minutes and recordings must be posted within two days following the meetings. You can google Governor’s Executive Order No.
7. The Opera House still has its string lights on the side and back of their building. These are the same lights that Martin's - Coffee & Bakery was forced to take down. Why is this not covered?

Murals Discussions Prompt MHZC Action
The Martin Historic Zoning Commission has adopted guidelines in relation to the use of murals on downtown businesses within the historic district of the city.
The district, which includes businesses along South Lindell Street and Broadway Street in downtown Martin, is governed by guidelines adopted and enforced by the MHZC.
Classified as a Certified Local Government through the Tennessee Historical Commission, the district maintains eligibility for downtown improvements, such as sidewalk lighting, signage and other features throughout the historic district.
The MHZC is made up of individuals who are appointed by the City of Martin Board of Aldermen in a volunteer capacity and do not receive compensation for serving on the commission.
Created in 1986, the MHZC now consists of a handful of local downtown business owners or managers, one Martin alderman and community members holding degrees in the field of history.
Recently, the commission was tasked with determining if murals were allowable within the area zoned as the Martin Historic Business District. Recently, downtown business owners requested the commission grant the couple approval for a mural to be painted on the backside of their building.
