How will this project benefit the economic and community development of Woodstock?

The increasing popularity of Woodstock as a destination for young families has created a larger demand for specialty food and beverage options. By developing the retail space at 52 Pleasant St., Abracadabra will provide locals and visitors a high end café experience in a fun and casual atmosphere. Roasted and packaged locally in Woodstock, Abracadabra has gained national recognition. Improving 52 Pleasant St. would allow Abracadabra to showcase our diverse offerings as a company including whole bean coffee, cold brew cans, apparel and merchandise. This visibility highlights Woodstock on a national level through our social media and online retail.
