Klavon’s coffee menu includes Americano; Latte; Chai Latte; Cappuccino; Mocha; Hot Chocolate; and brewed coffee featuring Roadhouse Joe, a smooth, medium roast, and the Coffee of the Month. Organic Teas by Rishi are also available with offerings of black tea English Breakfast and Earl Gray; green tea Jade Cloud and Jasmine Pearl; and herbal tea Turmeric Ginger.
“Adding drive-thru coffee service was a natural fit for our business model,” said Justin Klavon, founder and owner of Klavon’s Pizzeria & Pub. “Our team members arrive early in the morning to prepare for opening at lunch, so it was simply a matter of identifying a coffee that matched our commitment to quality, and we found that partner in Ann Arbor-based Zingerman’s Coffee Company.”
Klavon’s also has a number of iced beverages including Cold Brew; Cold Brew topped with sweet caramel foam; Iced Americano; Iced Latte; Iced Chai Latte; and Organic Iced Tea made with classic black tea. Additional specialty iced beverage features are Café Con Miel, a honeyed latte with warm cinnamon; Nilly Nilly, made with espresso, vanilla syrup and half and half; the Frigo which is cold brew coffee blended with heavy cream and a choice of vanilla, caramel or chocolate, and topped with house-made whipped cream; and Strawberry Banana and Triple Berry Smoothies. Customers can choose from 2 percent, non-fat, almond and oat milk, and select caramel, hazelnut, chocolate or vanilla flavorings added to their favorite beverage.
“Klavon’s team member baristas Desirae Buhler and Cassie Jakubas love engaging with customers, brightening their day with a delicious coffee and friendly smile,” said Klavon. Buhler and Jakubas completed barista training with Zingerman’s to ensure each Klavon’s customer receives an excellent and consistent caffeinated beverage. Zingerman’s Coffee Company brews in small batches, paying respect to the geographic and climatic characteristics that give the beans their unique taste.
Justin Klavon’s passion for pizza began at the age of 16 when he delivered pizza and began learning the basics of the craft in Grass Lake, Mich. He became an entrepreneur at 19 when he debuted Justin Tyme Pizza in Jackson, Mich. The take-out and delivery concept grew to three locations before Klavon sold the business in 2007. That same year, Klavon introduced his upscale, sit-down pizzeria, Klavon’s Pizzeria & Pub. The restaurants feature a vibrant sports theme with large TV displays, full cocktail service, and a large menu of appetizers, salads, sandwich, hamburgers, calzones, and Klavon’s popular handcrafted pizzas in Classic American, Neapolitan, Detroit Style and Chicago Stuffed options.
While training with Italian pizzaiolos, Klavon learned that espresso-based beverages and pastries are a common breakfast pairing in Italy, bringing more synergy to the coffee and pizza combo under one roof. He is optimistic the coffee menu will become popular at the Jackson location, and plans to launch coffee service at the Mason restaurant in the fall.
“We are so excited to give our guests another reason to come see us. We already love being part of their lunch and dinner routines and can’t wait to now see them every morning too!” added Klavon.
