CU System
Dubuque neighborhood perks up with CU's Caisse Cafe
DUBUQUE, Iowa (6/11/14)--Credit unions, and other community financial institutions, have long sought a formula to create a branch that could serve as more than a place for routine transactions, but as a destination for members and the community to gather. Later this summer, Dubuque, Iowa-based IntegrUS CU, with $19 million in assets, will offer its community just that when it opens a branch that includes a wireless cafe and coffee shop.

In addition to serving as a full-service branch, Caisse Cafe-- a loose French translation of "credit union coffee"--will serve gourmet and flavored coffees, specialty beverages, and a limited assortment of baked goods and breakfast items. The location will also feature a 24-hour ATM in the branch entry.

"People will get a chance to stop by, buy a great cup of coffee, sit awhile and relax. Caisse Cafe will help us serve our members and potential members on a more personal basis," said President/CEO Jonathon Miller.

The coffee and food served at Caisse Cafe will also have community ties. Jumpy Monkey Coffee is made with select beans from around the world and then hand-roasted in Sioux City, Iowa, by individuals with disabilities.

Opportunities Unlimited purchased the Seattle-based Jumpy Monkey brand for the purpose of providing meaningful and purposeful employment to persons with disabilities.

The cafe will also feature baked goods produced locally by East Mill Bakeshop and Catering. The bakery uses locally farmed ingredients in many of its products.
