By Joe Musso

Dollop Coffee Company started as a small independent shop on Chicago’s North side in 2005, but has had a major growth spurt in the past 22 months. Dollop now has four locations from Evanston to the South Loop. The local chain, which serves Metropolis brand coffee,  has attracted a loyal following of customers who appreciate its high-end Joe and laid-back atmosphere.
