TURNER — The insatiable demand for coffee shops in Androscoggin County continues at breakneck speed, as The Buzz can confirm a new Aroma Joe’s has broken ground at 60 Auburn Road.

The Maine-based coffee chain lists five locations in Lewiston and Auburn and has other locations in Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Florida.

Barring any construction or permit delays, franchise owners Bob and Wendy Levesque are projecting a late-summer opening. “We are so excited to join the Aroma Joe’s family,” the couple said. “We have been proud Turner residents for over 20 years and look forward to bringing the Aroma Joe’s positivity to our town in late summer 2023.”
