We love Rob - he's Detroit, he's a dad, he's an entrepreneur living the dream - he's the man behind Rhino Market.
Enderly is humbled to be a top-selling coffee at Rhino Market. We value our relationship with Rhino and Rob. And as Rob told me, the feeling's mutual.
"I think having a relationship with a purveyor (Enderly) on the Westside was most intriguing. What a great synergy... we sell a lot of coffee and having a roaster in our "backyard" was awesome," Rob said.
Rhino and Enderly share the same people, almost the same neighborhood, and Tony was the first coffee roaster to approach Rob about doing business there. Plus, Tony and Rob are both from Detroit, where Rob told me there were NOT Rhino Market-esque places. Instead, they both grew up with "party stores" - a place to get pop (Faygo, Vernors), beer, chips (Better Made), wine, snacks, newspapers and even a good submarine sandwich. For Tony it was the In-n-Out Party Store in Rochester Hills.
Rhino, on the other hand, carries local, fabulous fare - the best coffee, Chicken Tortas (If you haven't tried them yet, you must!), breakfast burritos, goodies and treats in all shapes and sizes and craft beers. Plus, every time I pop in - local lyrics and crowd favorites are being strummed by brave, good people for a mix of commercial real estate folk, graphic designers, start up types, young professionals, tradesmen, shop owners, small biz owners, you name them, they're there.
Rhino's new location is opening TODAY (August 21st), eclipse day. Why not grab a bite, beer, beverage and head to Romare Bearden's fountains and catch the eclipse with fabulous local fare and folks, the best kind of folks. Rhino's new hot spot will be popping, so good luck finding a seat. Our beans'll be available to pick up on your way in or out of the office - Westside or Uptown at Rhino. Congrats to Rob and long live the Rhino!
