Originally from Arizona, Warren and Debi first met as teenagers and together they raised four children - Lori, Michael, Sherry and Mendy and now have nine grandchildren. They spent many years in the Colorado Rocky Mountains and then in 2005 they moved to Texas and it has been their home ever since.
Warren first saw the empty building that is now the Turquoise Coffee Stop in 2017 when he was in Chillicothe putting in concrete for the high school track field. Although it had been empty for 35 years, he saw the potential in the original rock-walled building and decided to make his vision real.
Debi has always been a coffee connoisseur and a fabulous cook and so together they decided to bring the old building back to life. They bought the property and the house across the street and made Chillicothe their new home.
With his extensive background in construction, Warren created a plan for the cafe and together, along with some help from their children, they set to work on the rebuild.
The inside was gutted, a new floor laid, walls dry walled and painted, a kitchen built, concrete poured and landscape planted. Their daughter Sherry and her husband Chris made many trips up from Dallas to work long hours on the construction process as well.
Warren and Debi had a specific vision for the cafe - a warm and inviting place where people could come for cofffee, homemade food and friendly conversation. With that in mind, they designed a bright color palette with comfy couches and chairs and bright wood tables which Warren made himself. In fact, he made all of the interior woodwork, both walls and furniture, in his unique artistic way.
Together they built what is now the lively and friendly Turquoise Coffee Stop enjoyed by locals and travelers from all around the world.
