Island Touch, a locally-owned and operated coffee shop, will soon be making its debut in Ocoee, according to a recent filing with the State of Florida. The restaurant will be located at 1711 Amazing Way, taking up 1685 square feet of space within Unit 113 in a new commercial building.
“I think we’ll have more of a home feel,” Co-Owner Dolly Mae Carnegie tells What Now Orlando. “That’s why we called it “Island Touch”, communicating that we’ll give a more personal touch to our space, as well as integrating Caribbean and African flavors to our sandwiches.”
When asked why Dolly and her husband Creigton decided to open a coffee shop, she explains “We’ve always wanted to do something together. We’ve always loved the food industry, and we both love coffee. We figured this area could use something a little different than the chains that are already here.”
Carnegie specifies that the Island Touch will be a “specialty coffee shop” serving “Grade A coffee”, along with sandwiches, desserts, pastries and, eventually, beer and wine.
If all goes well with the permitting process, the Carnegies anticipate an opening in February or March of 2023.
Thank you for sharing information about our upcoming coffee shop business. We are humbled to join other businesses around the surrounding areas and we look forward to seeing everyone at our grand opening! Stay tuned!
