7 BREW Coffee celebrates grand opening in Niceville with ribbon-cutting ceremony

7 BREW Coffee celebrated its grand opening in Niceville with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, marking the company's second location in Okaloosa County. 7 BREW plans to expand throughout Florida, focusing on cultivating kindness within the community.

7 BREW Coffee celebrated its grand opening in Niceville with a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by staff and members of the Niceville-Valparaiso Chamber of Commerce.

  • The event kicked off with a warm welcome from Chamber of Commerce member Dana Topel, who emphasized the importance of community partnerships and local support.

“We are deep in the community and keeping it local is what we live and die by in this community,” Topel said. “I just want to thank all of you for coming out today. It’s very important for us in this community to partner with each other and show up so we can figure out how we can best support you and your business.”

Chief Growth Officer Zac Cockman of 7 BREW shared his journey with the company, which started with eight stores in Arkansas three years ago.

  • “We started with the thought that everyone has a coffee shop but I haven’t been to a place where people love the community like 7 BREW,” Cockman said. “7 BREW is all about cultivating kindness.”

The Niceville location is the second 7 BREW in Okaloosa County, following the opening of a Crestview store a year ago. The company has plans to expand throughout Florida, with a goal of opening approximately 200 more stands in the state alone.

“Our biggest focus right now is Florida,” said Katelyn Browning, the manager of 7 BREW in Niceville. “We love it out here, the people, the community, and everyone we have hired are such hard workers and they love the brand and their job. We don’t consider our customers as just customers, we think of them as our besties.”

7 BREW offers a variety of beverages, including energy drinks, teas, lemonades, shakes, smoothies, and fizzes, with many options available in sugar-free and dairy-free variations. Browning recommends the “Banana Bread Brunette,” which can be enjoyed hot, iced, or frozen.

The 7 BREW Niceville location is situated at 1162 John Sims Pkwy E, between Pofolks and Zaxbys. The store is open Sundays through Thursdays from 5:30 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Fridays and Saturdays from 5:30 a.m. to 11 p.m.
