University Parkway gets new coffee shop.

Clutch Coffee Bar opened last month at the former Smoothie King location at 5709 University Parkway, touting its drive-thru coffee concept. The menu offers fair-trade, organic coffee and includes various concoctions like their homemade energy drinks, smoothies, and array of gourmet coffee drinks. Founded by Darren Spicer, along with partners John Anderson and Jake Vandermeer, this is the first Clutch Coffee Bar in the Triad; the chain’s original location opened in 2018 in Mooresville. Expansion plans include Clemmons and Greensboro. clutchcoffeebar.com
