New owners: No changes for Sellwood's "Ugly Mug"
After making the Ugly Mug Coffee Shop on S.E. 13th Avenue in Sellwood a neighborhood attraction for a dozen years, owner Kim Nudelman decided to hang up her apron – to focus on getting a nursing degree.
In January new owners, Cole and Cheryl Akeman, bought the business.
Kim really made this shop a part of the community, Cole Akeman remarked, between making beverages for customers. With the changing of the guard at the Ugly Mug, were planning to keep up her tradition.
I want people to feel free to come in, hang out, relax, work on their computer, and enjoy a good cup of coffee, Akeman smiled.
Because an OLCC certification automatically expires when a business ownership changes, the couple reapplied for the beer and wine license. We look forward to offering Sunday Brunch, with Champagne mimosas, cheesecake, and quiche, Akeman said.
Were working hard to make really good coffee, he affirmed. And, it makes a difference to us that people feel were still part of the community. That hasnt changed, just because the ownership has changed.
