Maplewood's Foundation Grounds is under new ownership

The venerable Maplewood coffee shop, Foundation Grounds, has changed hands, as Neil Suthar took ownership of the business on March 25.

“What differentiated this opportunity was the culture, the success and history and reputation,” Suthar said. “We plan to focus on continued customer experience with high quality products, food and service.”

Don’t look for any radical changes in the near future. Suthar plans to continue to keep things the same for now and looks to expand down the road. “After I have an opportunity to really get into the role, there will be future opportunities to enhance the experience,” he said.
