Rick Harrison, the star of Pawn Stars, announced the newest tenant at Pawn Plaza today as BLVD Coffee and you won’t have to wait too long as they open at 8 AM on Friday, March 6th.
The new Pawn Plaza tenant will join Good Pie, Rick’s Rollin Smoke BBQ & Tavern, Chumlee’s Candy on the Blvd., Chapels at the Pawn, Highway Radio, Pawn Plaza Visitors Center, Master Barbering Galo Shop and Elite Motorsports to round out the dining and shopping opportunities across the parking lot from the World Famous Gold & Silver Pawn Shop.
“I am excited to have an amazing and diverse group of tenants at Pawn Plaza and to be fully leased. It doesn’t get any more Vegas than the Carter family who will operate BLVD Coffee and we welcome them and know they will be very successful with us,” said proprietor and bartender (on select Friday and Saturday nights at his own Rick’s Rollin Smoke BBQ & Tavern) Rick Harrison.
The Carter family is a Vegas basketball tradition and has called Las Vegas home for over a quarter-century. It couldn’t be any more appropriate for their BLVD Coffee to open in March with basketball tournaments all over the city and March Madness days away. Dad “Big Mike” coaches at Bishop Gorman and has for more than two decades. Younger son Ben is a professional basketball player overseas and mom Hadar, a former Israeli Army Lieutenant, is the heart of the family and the coffee operation. Oldest son Tim will oversee operations after playing collegiate basketball. The family has always bonded over coffee and thus BLVD Coffee was born. “BLVD Coffee will support local businesses and to that end, our coffee will come from Boulder City’s Colorado River Coffee Roasters,” said Tim Carter. He added, “We hope to become known for exceptional customer service and great coffee as well as top-notch grab-n-go snacks and pastries.”
BLVD Coffee recognizes a dream come true for young Tim (in his mid-20’s) as he has always wanted to open his own business and be an entrepreneur. Always, supporters of the Las Vegas community, BLVD Coffee will offer discounts for senior citizens and veterans. As an original owner of Pawn Plaza, we only wish The Old Man were still with us to take advantage of such discounts! BLVD Coffee will be giving out free samples of drip coffee all day Friday so that visitors can get a taste of the good stuff. The coffee shop will be open at 8 AM every morning and until the early evening.
