MOTW Coffee grows beyond Indy roots
Beloved local chain MOTW Coffee is expanding, opening its first two shops outside of Indianapolis and announcing plans for dozens more.
The latest: MOTW opened its newest location in a Chicago suburb last weekend.
- Its first store outside of Indiana opened on Yale's campus last month.
What's next: The Indy-based company told WTHR it's looking to open 30-40 more franchise locations over the next five years.
Flashback: MOTW grew out of a popular Instagram account @muslimsoftheworld, which was founded by Sajjad Shah to counter anti-Muslim sentiment.
- Shah and his wife opened the first MOTW coffee shop on 38th Street in the Lafayette Square area in 2021.
- Locations in Castleton, Fishers and Carmel followed.
Brew of the week: Date cardamom latte
- One of MOTW's signature flavors, it's slightly sweet and lightly spiced — a delicious departure from your everyday vanilla.
- Cost: $6
