A set is on display inside Todd Foresmanâ€™s Coffee shop on the ground floor, where he takes pride in his work. â€œWhen you are cooking for people that you care about, you make a better meal. Itâ€™s the same with the coffee. I really love what I do. I really do believe I have the best coffee in the state,â€ said Todd Foresman, Owner, Way Cool Beans Coffee Shop
Toddâ€™s landlord is property owner Mark Winkelman, an architect from New York. Heâ€™s renovating the Pajama Factory and turned part of the building into his home away from home. â€œWeâ€™ve owned it for twelve years. Itâ€™s been a continuous renovation effort. And we will continue for many more years. I like the slow growth, the organic growth aspect of that,â€ said Mark Winkelman, Owner of the Pajama Factory.
