Wood-fired pizza truck owner buys Two Brothers Coffee in Brighton | SehndeWeb

Nick Mannisto successfully launched a food truck during the pandemic, which helped put him in a position to buy a popular cafe and restaurant in downtown Brighton.

Mannisto, 28, has dreamed of opening a traditional restaurant since launching his food truck, Captain’s Wööd Fired Pies, in August 2020.

Earlier this month he took over Two Brothers Coffee, which he bought from Jim Starnes, who opened it in 2008.

Mannisto, who is also a professional DJ, and his girlfriend Lauren Somers, a yoga instructor who helps him with the business, said they would slowly change the menu, drink offerings over time – including coffee, tea, beer, wine and liquor — and interior.

They plan to install a wood-fired pizza oven covered in black mosaic tiles near the front door this summer.
