Joanna Gaines and her husband Chip look like they are adding to their Magnolia farms family. The “Fixer Upper” star announced that they will be opening an new coffee shop, Magnolia Press, in their hometown of Waco, Texas.
And we all know, there’s always a need for new coffee shops. Joanna took to Instagram to share the news and a photo of the new shop in progress.
“For the past couple of months, we’ve been working on a new addition to the Silos grounds. This fall, our coffee shop Magnolia Press, will officially open! I thought it would be fun to show you a sneak peek at the design renderings for the space on the blog! #MagnoliaPress, “she wrote.

The mom of five also took to her Magnolia blog to share a little more information about how the coffee shop came about.
“Chip and I have a history of pulling the trigger on projects that feel right in our gut, even before we’ve fully wrapped our minds around what they’ll become,” Joanna added. “One of these moments happened a little over a year ago, when we bought a building that sits just one block down from the Silos without having a clear vision for what we were going to do with it.
“Our dream for the Silos grounds has always been for it to be a place where people can relax and take a break from the demands of life.” she continued. “So this fall, we will be opening our coffee shop, Magnolia Press! When our team brainstormed on the name we kept coming back to this idea of a french press and the slower (but very rewarding) process of making a rich, good cup of coffee.
“It felt symbolic for what we hope people find here with us—a spot to slow down, to take it all in, and to simply savor the moment,” she added. “In a world where everything feels rushed and fast-moving, there’s a familiar and worthwhile pause waiting for us in a good cup of coffee.”
The coffee shop is just one of many projects Chip and Joanna have in the works including their own television network, a new series for the network, a website and streaming app to name a few. Magnolia Press will be the newest addition to the couple’s local businesses which include Magnolia Homes, Magnolia Realty, Magnolia Market, Magnolia Seed & Supply, and Silos Baking Co.
Phew! We need a cup of coffee after thinking about all they have going on. Drink up!
