Owner and operator of Valley Grind Coffee in downtown Santa Ynez, Chelsey Williams, announced via social media on Aug. 1 that the coffee shop will soon have new owners.
"Thank you all for the love and support these last 7 years. I love and appreciate all of you and the special relationships that have been formed with each and every one of you. It’s time to pass the torch on to new owners who will strive to make this spot better than ever. If you have a VG gift card, please redeem it no later than 8/15/18. And be sure and pop in to say hello or goodbye."
When social media fans asked about her last day of business, Williams responded, "Shooting for the 15th right now." She also said that the location will assume new owners and be renamed, but will remain a coffee house.
Williams was not available for comment.
