As of Tuesday, Federal Way residents Brian Todd and Russhele Arreola are the new owners of Austin Chase Coffee, located at 32901 1st Ave. S. in the Quad Shopping Center.

The owners said the shop remains open for business. They plan to change the name to B&R Espresso Bar, but will still provide the same trademark Austin Chase roasted coffee.

Seattle-based Austin Chase was founded in 1989, and each store is locally owned by a "respected, quality focused retail licensee," according to
