New coffee shop becomes a local Indie hotspot


Many citizens view alleyways to be one of the most dangerous places to hangout in, much less enjoy a cup of coffee.
Frequency is one of Columbia’s newest additions that can be found in Alley Way, an alley between Aladdin’s Hookah lounge and Muse Clothing. Owner Ryker Duncan commented about the excessive amount of preparation that went into creating the new local hotspot.
“I had the idea while sitting on my couch”, said Duncan. Duncan comments on how he originally planned to start the coffee shop in Kansas, but had problems obtaining the space. Duncan, who had friends that lived in Columbia, decided to start the business in downtown area.
“It has been a positive experience so far, except for the hours”, said Duncan. Duncan spends about seventy hours a week behind the counter. The preparation behind obtaining the necessary items for the store was also tedious because each item had to be purchased in wholesale stores around the country.
