The Restoration Shop

Sherri and Mark Evans opened The Restoration Shop in 2017.

JUNCTION CITY — Perry County Waste Reduction & Recycling sends out kudos to The Restoration Shop — a coffee and ice cream shop in Junction City for leading by example!

Sherri and Mark Evans foster a business operations policy to reduce wasteful habits by reusing and recycling what they can.

The coffee shop opened in December 2017, adding a retro ice cream shop in the spring. The word restoration came from going back to the old methods of doing things — wanting to slow down.

Sherri grinds her coffee beans, presses them and uses a percolator; using real ingredients and pure extracts for flavors. Sherri and Mark want to give the community a place to stop, slow down and enjoy their nostalgic atmosphere.

Drink a good cup of coffee and eat a pastry, served in washable cups and plates. For on the go, they provide paper based cups and bags, avoiding Styrofoam or plastic. They strive to operate with less waste — like back in the old days. Bringing to mind the old adage, “Use it us, wear it out, make it do, or do without.”

Kudos to The Restoration Shop for doing what they can to divert unnecessary waste from the landfill — helping to keep Perry County clean and green!

They use the drop off by Kings Grand Central, one of over 21 drop-off sites around Perry County! Operated and managed in partnership between Perry County Waste Reduction and Recycling and PerCo Recycling Center.

PerCo Recycling Center is based in New Lexington, open 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Monday-Friday for residents and businesses to drop off the following items, which are accepted for recycling: cardboard, office paper, newspaper, magazines, aluminum cans, steel food cans, #1 & #2 plastics like pop bottles and milk jugs, clear & brown glass bottles and jars.
