White Rhino Coffee to open location at storied Uptown Dallas address

A suburban coffee concept has big plans for Dallas-Fort Worth, including opening a location at a key Uptown address.

The concept is White rhinoceros coffeeThe company began its DFW colonization in 2020, revealing locations in Bishop Arts and Arlington.

Two more are now in the works for early 2021:

  • Uptown Dallas, at 2909 Thomas Ave., in the state of Thomas District. Preliminary opening date: January.
  • Fort Worthto 1201 8th Ave. Preliminary opening date: February.

White Rhino is known for its artisanal coffee, pastries and Mediterranean bistro cuisine. The menu includes espresso drinks such as lattes and cappuccino as well as dishes such as sandwiches, salads, toasts, bagels and tacos.

They make signature drinks like Mint Condition with white chocolate, mint, and vanilla; plus seasonal specials like Cookie Butter Latte; plus premium tea from Los Angeles supplier The Art of Tea.

White Rhino was founded in 2007 by entrepreneur Chris Parvin, who opened offices in Cedar Hill, Red Oak, and Waxahachie where he attended Southwestern Assemblies of God University.

They prefer old buildings like Waxahachie, which opened in 2018 and has been carefully preserved in a centuries-old building.

“We’re thinking about which districts are best for our brand and which pioneering locations are best,” says a spokesman.

Arlington is a nifty replica of the former Worthington National Bank building at 401 E. Border St. They kept the original structure, but added a kitchen, patio, and amenities like bicycle storage. Former lanes have been converted for drive-through / take-away orders.

One location in Bishop Arts is an outlier: It’s located at 223 W. Seventh St., on street level of the Victor Prosper Apartments, in a new building. It’s a cool space with gold surfaces and chic ceilings – they balance the cosmopolitan style of Dallas with the cozy vibe for which they are known.

Uptown will be more prototypical. It is located in the historic State Thomas neighborhood in a former two story house built in 1910 with two terrace areas on the facade. The space has been vacant since 2013 when the London pub closed after five years.

Thoughtful action is a Parvin motif, from soothing aqua packaging to his company’s Parvin Group’s spiritual mission to create profitably growing businesses that “give back to the kingdom of God, make the world a better place and enrich life” Employees. “

“We’ve had incredible success building coffee shops where people feel like they’re creating a unity around coffee,” they say. “In every community we belong to, we do our best to give back to the causes of the community. Each café has a donation budget for local causes.”

“Our world is about solidifying the community around coffee – bringing people together and giving back to the communities.”
