“Grey’s Anatomy” star Patrick Dempsey is part of a group that plans to place a bid on the Tully’s Coffee company, which filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy in October. Patrick, and the group he is heading, plan to put a bid in for the company on January 3, 2013, so we’ll keep you posted after that.
Here’s a statement Patrick released about possibly buying the Washington-based coffee company:
I’m excited about the opportunity to save hundreds of jobs, give back to Seattle and become a larger part of the economic growth and fabric of the community. I’ve always loved this city, and with the purchase of Tully’s Coffee, I plan to spend a lot of time in Seattle and at the stores connecting with the community and growing the Tully’s brand. It looks like Seattle may be my home away from home in the very near future.
Are you glad that Patrick might save the Tully’s Coffee brand?
