Frankie left the stability and security of the corporate world to focus on his passion for coffee roasting in 2016. He delved into a start-up, with much trepidation, opened Boonton Coffee Co and 5-years later the business is thriving. The coffee shop has taken on a life of its own and far surpassed Frankie’s initial vision. Boonton Coffee is cemented as a cornerstone for the Boonton and surrounding community artists, musicians, dreamers, entrepreneurs and of-course coffee lovers. Frankie is along for the ride!
