“We want to congratulate you as an entrepreneur. Being in this business is hard, and for you to have been in it for thirteen years is congratulatory,” said Mayor Truly.
Alderman Les Penn added this development would “be great for the community.”
Freida Ferguson, owner of Cups in Ridgeland, is planning to bring Cups to Canton and said “I would love to employ high school and college kids in the area. We love to donate and give back to the community. The coffee shop is part of the community, and we want to work with its members.”
Mr. Singhs, the owner of the convenience store the Cups would partner with, added he was happy to be a part of the new endeavor.
