Washington-based energy drink and cafe concept, Gravity Coffee, appears to be making good on its ambitious Phoenix plans with the filing of a building permit for its location at 20049 N 24th Way, which comes a little more than a month after a similar permit filing for a 724-square-foot outpost in Mesa.
A representative of Gravity could not immediately be reached for comment. However, details in the building permit – which was issued last Friday, June 23 – include a “single-story ground-up beverage store with drive-thru lanes,” and “no indoor or outdoor seating.”
Gravity Coffee’s intentions to enter the Arizona market can be traced back to 2021, when What Now Phoenix reported that the company was eyeing Gilbert, Surprise, and Phoenix. To date, however, only one Gilbert location has opened, with another 12 listed on its website as “landing soon,” including five in Gilbert, one in Glendale, three slated for Mesa, two in Phoenix, and one in Surprise.
Incidentally, What Now Phoenix reported on one of the Mesa outposts in September 2022, which called for a spot at 3000 E. McKellips Rd.
More than just a coffee shop, Gravity also whips up its own signature energy drinks such as the Down to Earth, a beyond blue energy base mixed with sour apple and blue raspberry topped with cream, as well as a green tea lemonade infused with mango and citrus dubbed the Sunrise, and a white coffee drink, Hyperspace, which is prepared with coconut and caramel.
