Randy and Ronda Owens opened The Perc Coffeehouse in 2016 because they wanted to create a place where the community could gather and engage with each other.

Coffeehouse Manager Kelly Cade, who has helped run the day-to-day operations at The Perc since it first opened, said working in an atmosphere with a strong sense of community is her favorite part of the job.“The Perc is a place where everyone knows your name,” Cade said.

Those wandering through the heart of Old Town Lewisville can smell the scent of handcrafted coffee and espresso drinks drifting through the air outside of The Perc, where coffee is not only served, but roasted as well. Cade said The Perc started roasting its own coffee beans about a year ago.
“Our team carefully chooses the beans, and when we get them, they’re still green,” Cade said. “We roast them in-house. Sometimes, we take customers back and show them our roastery. They like to see that we put a lot into the coffee from start to finish.”

The Perc’s menu includes all of the staples of a typical coffee shop—lattes, Americanos, cold brews and drip coffee. But the shop also offers seasonal drinks throughout the year. Cade said the baristas put a lot of time and effort into crafting the seasonal drinks.

This fall’s special menu includes drinks such as the Granny Smith Matcha and Old Town Cider. It also includes Cade’s personal fall favorite—the Toasted Marshmallow Latte, which is served with an actual toasted marshmallow on the side.

“Our baristas have a lot of fun with the seasonal menus,” Cade said. “They get really creative.”

Cade said she feels the Owenses achieved what they set out to do by opening The Perc.

“This is just a community destination,” Cade said. “That is probably the biggest reason why our regulars come back. I mean, they like the coffee, but a huge part of it is also the relationship, the service. We remember their names; we remember what drink they order. We get to know them.”
