A new local business has opened its doors, offering something unique to Copperas Cove residents.
Located at 303 S. Main Street, The House on Main celebrated its grand opening on Saturday afternoon, with a raffle and a ribbon cutting as one of the newest members of the Copperas Cove Chamber of Commerce.
Opening the door to the House on Main brings customers to a small seating area and a coffee and smoothie bar.
The House on Main also features a one-room hair salon, a space for a nail technician for manicures and pedicures, a massage therapy room, a lash specialist and a boutique at the back of the house. There is also a kitchen space.
The House on Main’s menu has a little bit of everything, from hot tea to frappes and smoothies. They also have Refreshers, similar to the bigger chain coffee shops.
Frappe flavors include caramel latte, classic latter, vanilla bean and cookies and cream. Tea flavors include Jasmine Silver Tip, Peppermint Leaves and British Brunch. Smoothie flavors include mixed berry, strawberry, strawberry banana, pineapple or lemonade or a mix of any choosing. Coffee options include dark roast, medium roast, breakfast blend and House Blend.
The Refresher flavors are strawberry acai, watermelon cucumber mint or peach mango.
Pricing for the drinks is as follows:
Frappes are $5 for a medium or $7 for a large.
Smoothies are $ for a small, $4.50 for a medium and $6 for a large.
Tea is $1.25 for a small cup. Coffee is $1.50 for a small, $3 for a medium or $5 for a large.
Owner Tanya Sparks has been a resident of Copperas Cove since 1989, and she was brought to the area due to her father being in the military.
Her father pushed her as an adult to invest in something, which is how the idea for the House on Main came about.
“I was trying to think of something I could do where I could rent space out while I figured out what I wanted to do, to help pay for it,” Sparks said. “It just kind of worked out.”
Sparks said she knew the hairstylist prior to renting the space to her, just as she knew the massage therapist was looking for a spot, which then brough about the idea of an all-in-one place for pampering.
“It just kind of all fell together, and then I thought, if you go to get your nails done, and you get your hair done, wouldn’t it be cool if you can get a coffee or get a smoothie or be able to shop while you wait,” Sparks said.
During Saturday’s grand opening, the House on Main held raffles for coupons from the massage therapist and a discount from the hairstylist, as well as a basket with some items from the boutique.
The House on Main is open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
On Sundays, the new business is open from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.
“It’s exciting,” Sparks said about having a grand opening and ribbon cutting. “It’s taken me a year to get here. I bought [the house] back in February of last year, so to finally be here and open and doing it, it’s exciting.”
Sparks said the plan is to eventually expand the outside area to neighboring lots to offer an outdoor space that can be rented for parties and events.
