On May 1, Forza Coffee at 9909 168th St East in South Hill will become Volcano Coffee. After 5 years, owners Casey and Kyla Heyer have decided to forego a new franchise agreement with Forza Coffee Co. and did not renew their contract.

“Becoming independent will allow (us) to creatively build an exciting brand,” Casey said.

The Heyers opened the coffee shop as a Forza franchise on May 30, 2007. Casey has a background in the roasting and marketing and Kyla has human resources experience.
