Tomorrow evening for a private crowd of local business owners, State Farm Insurance's new concept, Next Door will host an open house. Guests will enjoy buzz-worthy java from the folks who brought you Noble Tree, Kickstand, and Dollop, nosh on delish bites by Boka Catering Group, who brought you Girl & The Goat, a dessert spread from Southport Grocery & Café, and smooth grooves by Sabertooth Quartet.
Imagine a community space where anyone could ask questions about finances and insurance and get some answers. This is Next Door The concept is creating a spot to hang out, take classes, talk with Financial Coaches and fuel up on great local coffee. Oh, yeah, and everything would be free (except the coffee). The Next Door team has street appearances lined up for the duration of the summer and will be in the new shop from tomorrow, moving forward.
