Teen takes over Severna Park coffee shop

While her peers are busy fine-tuning their taste buds for specialty coffees and lattes, 19-year-old Kaely Roe of Severndale bought more than a cupful - she just purchased her first coffee shop......

"I always joked that if I can make a living as a coffee girl ... I didn't expect it to be a career goal.".....

Seven college students and fellow home-schoolers, including Ms. Roe's 16-year-old brother Lucas, make up the staff. Her mother is the secretary of the corporation, and her father helped put in a new floor.

Severna Perk currently serves a variety of coffees and espressos. However, Ms. Roe's business plan includes phasing in organic coffees and homemade pastries within the next month.

This girl is definately doing her thing. It's cool to see not only a young person have that entrepreneurial sprit; especially if it's about a cafe. If you know of a similar story please post a comment.

    Go Kaely!! We love the fact that she has all of her cups in a row. We stopped in and were amazed at what she has accomplished.

    Congratulations and best of luck. - HSers in Chesapeake Beach, MD
