Update that was posted on Martin's - Coffee & Bakery:

"Here is the hard truth about the new restrictions from the Historic Zoning Commission demanding we remove our lights.
Our shop depends on the business we get at night. When our lights are off our sales drop. It's hard to stay open as late as we do with the loss of the sales that come from our store not being lit up. This whole thing is not as small as just lights it's about cutting sales from a business that has had these lights for 2 years now. Our lights do not stand in the way of the city getting any grants, in fact, our shop got a grant to pay for half of our signage and our lights were up then too. I truly do not understand why this whole thing has gotten this out of hand. It's exhausting and I am tired of dealing with it. We are trying to make the downtown a welcoming place. I want to understand what this is really about."

Update on the lights

A message from John Sellers that was posted on Martin's - Coffee & Bakery page.
"I just want to say thank you for all of the support in dealing with the Historic Zoning Commission demanding we remove our lights. One of our amazing customers has started a petition that now has over 500 signatures. We did not start this petition and were hesitant on sharing it with our page. I don't want any negativity on this. I felt like posting a link to this petition is respecting all of the comments and personal messages we have gotten over the past few days. I will take the petition with all of the signatures to the next meeting and hopefully, it will convince the board to allow us to keep the lights. No matter what happens, we will still be here serving coffee and lunch. Our motive is to support our community, it's the reason we have bought 2 buildings in Martin, it's the reason we stay open later it's the reason we try so hard to be the best we can be for Martin."

Sign the Petition

A customer of Martin's - Coffee & Bakery has started an online petition to show support to keep Martin's outside lights from being taken down by the city. The Historic Zoning Commission will be charging a $100 fee a day if the lights stay up. The petition already has over 180 signatures.
What do you think about all of this?

My first week of being a stay at home dad...
At the beginning of this year Courtney told me she wanted to start getting back into working. All of the work that I do now days can be done at home on a laptop.
I am really proud of Courtney for wanting to work, she has been substitute teaching at a lot of the local schools and really loving it. She does not have to work and has been able to spend every day at home for the first year of having Henry. I have been trying very hard to build businesses where we were able to spend time with our family.
I have to be honest, I had no idea how hard it would be constantly watching and playing with Henry. It has only been a week but it has brought a whole new perceptive to what Courtney has done for the past year!
I was home often and we were blessed to have a lot of time for Henry but I was not watching him every day.
We are getting into a rhythm now but it's still awkward trying to split my work time at home with this little guy.
He is walking/running everywhere and wants to spend more time outside than inside.
At times like these I am reminded what life is all about. It's not about growing the strongest businesses or having lots of money it's about family. I have been reminded of that. All I have to do today is focus on my son and that's enough. I don't have to take over the world or try to make money, I get to just be dad.
Thank you guys for supporting my little family and local business. We are so honored to have the opportunity to be a part of Martin, Tennessee.

Can you believe the transformation of Martin Coffeehouse from just 3 years ago? We always tried to do the best we could for the stage we were in. We still live that way, but sometimes it's hard to accept that you can't fully live out your dreams right now. It's a challenge to say, "yes, we need that, but we can't right now" when you know exactly what you want to do and exactly how you want it to look. With wide, unshaded windows, facebook stories, live videos, real appointments with real clients, this space has not been our secret project with a veil hiding the contents until every detail was perfect and just so. Instead, our space has acted as a changing canvas open to the public showing all the raw experiments of the variant growing pains our businesses have worked through.
If you want to follow this messy journey as we continue the next chapter of our lives, follow us on the Act Natural Podcast!
