KANSAS CITY, MO. A coffee shop in the east of the country is working to clean up after an accident that forced it to temporarily close its doors.
The truck driver lost control and crashed Anchor Island Coffee near 41st and Trust earlier this week.
According to the store’s Facebook page, the landlord did not have adequate insurance to cover the repairs needed for the building. Since this is a commercial property, the landlord is required to insure the building.
Anchor Island Coffee is still waiting on its insurance agent to appraise the property to see if the policy will cover any repairs.
The owners said they are either considering fighting the landlord in court or covering the repairs themselves to get back up and running as soon as possible.
Customers have set up a GoFundMe account in hopes of raising money to help the owners rebuild. Only in one day score raised over $11,000 for the business.
