How did Nicholas Coffee Co. originate?
Nicholas C. Nicholas founded the coffee company that bears his name in 1919, opening a storefront in Market Square. At first, its roasted Arabica coffee was available only to walk-in customers, but eventually, Nicholas coffee was available in Pittsburgh-area grocery stores. Today, it can be ordered online and delivered to destinations across the globe.
The Market Square building has undergone many changes and survived both the 1936 flood and a serious fire in 2017.
