Splitlog Coffee Co. to open second location in Pendleton Heights

Splitlog Coffee Co. is a intimate coffee shop, whose hustle and bustle seem more like home than an overpacked business. The customers there are comfortable, and although it can get loud, love doing work and schoolwork at their tables.

Founded in 2017, by Adam and Caleb Whittmer, Splitlog Coffee Co. has one location on Strawberry Hill in Kansas City, Kan. It is named after a landowner in KCK named Mathias Splitlog, who gained some wealth after establishing a horse-powered sawmill.

The two brought on Simeon Bricker, a longtime coffee professional, to help them create a unique coffee experience.

The Whitmers said they think that respecting the history of the area you are in is the most important, so they had multiple reasons for moving to the Pendleton Heights area.

They said they knew the Northeast was the historical hidden gem for Kansas City. Splitlog Coffee will be adding their new location on Olive Avenue, just north of the new Pendleton ArtsBlock building.

The Northeast community is one big family. Neighbors are each other’s best friends, and everyone here cares about the progress of the Northeast.

This can be quite scary for a new business coming in, but Bricker thinks that they’ll fit into the community nicely.

“It’s a little soon to talk about grand openings, but we want to create something that the community is proud of and wants to come out for,” said Bricker.

Bricker has been involved in the coffee community since college. He did not originally plan to be a part of the coffee world, but fell in love with it rather quickly.

He has won several national coffee competitions, including the Portland, Ore. Latte Art Competition. This only furthered his love for coffee and helped him get closer to the community of coffee.

Now, he dedicates his career to making amazing coffee and cares deeply about the people he surrounds himself with.

“It is such a rich community, and we saw something we felt was missing in the community, and just want to add to its beauty.”

Like they have honored the history in KCK with their name, they plan on doing the same in the Northeast. Although they are still in the beginning stages of construction, Bricker said they know how important it is to truly become a part of the community, in order to succeed as a business.

Although the business model will be similar to the one Splitlog Coffee Co. has in Kansas, they also plan on including a kitchen where they will serve breakfast items such as sandwiches and wraps, alongside their normal pastries.

This location will be without a drive-through, but they plan on implementing ways where it is just as convenient for locals to be in and out in the mornings.
