One Brilliant Business Idea To Check Out This Weekend

We are beyond bummed we didn't think of this first. The most naturally obvious, yet non-existent until now business idea for Chicago is a bike and coffee shop in one. Heritage Bicycles General Store recently opened in Chicago, and offers patrons the unreal convenience of ordering a cup of coffee and buying a custom bike at the same time. Why is this so appealing? Maybe it's the simplicity of two of Chicago's favorite things in one place. Maybe it's just that we've got a new spot to cruise single people. Who cares, we love this! From the interior design to the concept, we're sold, and here's hoping more Heritage-inspired two-in-ones pop up all around town. Until then, take a quick virtual tour of the place, and then get back to the real world and get there yourself.
