Open The Well in Wells, NY


Update: 8/7/17  We're almost there!  We are coming down the home stretch and ask you to join us on the journey.  While we can be found on Instagram and Twitter @thewellinwells and on Facebook "The Well",  the beginning of our story starts here:

It is with great enthusiasm that Diane and Andrew proudly announce The Well, a coffee shop and wellness market,  located on Rt. 30 in the Town of Wells, NY.  
The Well exists to serve the needs of the community.  We are a local business operating with the intention of providing a welcoming gathering place while simultaneously improving the  quality of life of our patrons.  The Well quenches your thirst in three ways:

1.)  Goodness for your mind- The Well serves as a community hub where people can  gather, read a book (use our WiFi for your Kindle!) or catch up on the local buzz.  It serves as an informational center for the many seasonal visitors that visit our town throughout the year.  The Well is also a venue for performing and visual artists and craftspeople, making sure that every time you walk through our door you will be inspired, refreshed and invigorated.

2.)  Goodness for your body- We offer fresh produce as well as organic goods and locally grown and prepared foods.  An array of natural personal wellness items will also be available.  Did we mention that coffee is GOOD for you?  If it’s good for your body, you’ll find it at The Well. 

3.)  Goodness for your soul- The Well serves as your one-stop-shop to restore a bit of your soul.  If that means satisfying that relentless sweet tooth, sipping the perfect latte, or just grabbing a fresh apple while chatting with your neighbor, you’ll leave a bit more refreshed than when you came in.  We offer a big smile and a welcoming spirit FREE with every purchase! 

There’s much more than just ‘something to drink' at The Well!

While construction is just about complete, paperwork filed, and legal documents in order, we are still in need of your help.  We have been wonderfully surprised by how many of you have approached us asking how you can help us open our doors.  Contributing to our fundraising campaign is the way to do that.

Your contribution will be applied to one of the following items: commercial refrigerator, pastry case, seating, espresso machine including costs related to its installation and plumbing.

Thank You Gift:
As a way to extend our gratitude for your help, we are offering contributors of $25 or more a gift certificate valued at 10% of the amount donated.  If you would like to take us up on the offer,  just provide us with your name and mailing address and we will make that happen.  If you wish to refrain from the offer, then we thank you for that extra little bit of help!

And as a “grande” thank you to the person who offers the largest donation, we would like to remember your generosity by creatively naming a beverage after you.  That’s right, we’ll place your name or the name of a loved one on one of our menu items.  Just let us know what you like and we’ll take it from there!

One extra way to help:  Gofundme charges us, The Well, a fee of 7.9% of each donation.  If you would like to stretch your contribution even further, you can simply mail a check directly to us:

The Well, P.O. Box 245 , Wells, NY 12190 

Please join us on our journey to The Well, a true community gathering space and a successful new business in the heart of the Adirondacks.  We thank you for your financial support as well as prayers and words of encouragement!

With much gratitude,

Diane and Andrew
