People in Joplin will soon have a new place to stop for a cup of joe.

Construction has started for the new “7 Brew Coffee” site at 33-47 South Range Line.

This will be the first store for the franchise outside of Arkansas and the ninth location overall.

It will be built in place of the former zips convenience store, which was demolished last week.

They hope to open up the coffee shop for business on January.
