It’s not a joke that a second Harrisonville business will soon be “mobbed” as part of a small business movement, but you’ll want to be sure to pick up a laugh or two while you’re there, and of course, a cup a joe.
The full-service mobile coffee house, Brew HaHa’s, owned by Bill and Jill Filer, was recently selected to be the featured food business for the Kansas City Metro Area Cash Mob movement’s June Dish Mob Saturday, June 22.
Every month, the cash mob rallies people from all over the Kansas City area to dine or shop at a particular business on both sides of the state line armed with cash to give small businesses exposure and economic boost.
Earlier this month, organizers asked voters to choose their favorite locally-owned food truck for the contest on Facebook.
The 13-month-old Harrisonville business generated the most response on the mob’s Facebook page.
The truck currently parks at various areas throughout Harrisonville, and also caters to special events around the county.
At the cash mob, there are just a couple of rules - spend $10-20 cash and meet three people you didn’t know already.
Brew HaHa’s will be serving a variety of hot and cold beverages, including espresso, brewed or blended coffees, fruit smoothies, hot chocolate and chai teas on Saturday, beginning at 11 a.m. outside of the Gaslight Shopping Center, 2009 Plaza Dr., Harrisonville.
A selection of breakfast pastry items will also be available.
Scrapbook-N-Memories was a featured business for the cash mob in November.
“We’re happy to have been nominated. It was quite the surprise,” Bill Filer said. “I am looking forward to meeting some new people.”
During the workweek, the Brew HaHa’s truck is parked at the former Weschester Bowling Lanes 7-9 a.m. and at Gaslight Shopping Center 11 a.m.-1 p.m. During the 9:30 a.m.-10:30 a.m. time period, the truck visits a variety of businesses in Harrisonville.
