Tully’s Coffee is a Washington-based coffee change that was having so many financial problems that it was forced to file Chapter 11 bankruptcy on October 10. Tully’s not only closed a number of their locations, but was also forced to let go of many of their valued employees.
The company is now up for auction on January 3 and one of the groups vying for the big win Patrick Dempsey (and others).
Dempsey, who plays McDreamy on “Grey’s Anatomy,” which is based on Seattle, Washington, told E! News,
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.
Well since he only has the most sincerest of intentions, I’m pulling for him to win!
