Exciting Changes Coming to Oil City Businesses


KarmaBreakfast, lunch, and dinner—all served in downtown Oil City by Shaun and Marie Alcorn at multiple businesses—and this month, some changes are coming to Karma Coffee Company and Northside Eatery, moving the Alcorns and Oil City in a positive direction.

Beginning on Monday, March 19, all lunch operations through Northside Eatery will move to Karma Coffee Company, and Northside Eatery will become retail space. “We know the community perspective will be that a business is leaving,” said the Alcorns. “But it’s actually quite the opposite; we have outgrown our space at Northside Eatery and we are expanding in order to make room for continued growth.”

Northside Eatery customers will be able to enjoy the same great lunch menu they have grown to love, plus some new options, such as fresh cut french fries. With Corey, head chef at Northside Eatery, and Jaime, manager at Karma Coffee Company, now working together, customers can expect unique and delicious lunch specials, including vegan and vegetarian options. Because lunch will be served within Karma Coffee Company, the option to order a custom-made drink or a pastry with lunch will be available, too.

The space at Karma Coffee Company will provide the opportunity for more efficiency and additional seating, and the rustic Northside Eatery tables will be relocated to the front of Karma Coffee Company. The location is just a few buildings down from where Northside Eatery sits and customers can enter through both Elm Street and Seneca Street.

“Nothing is going away,” said the Alcorns. “If anything, our offerings are getting better.”

Karma Coffee Company will continue to offer brunch on the weekend, as well as catering for events and meetings, hosted throughout the area or held in their back room. Recently, they have introduced more locally sourced items to their menus, including, pork, chicken, and eggs from Gruber Farms of Shippenville and lamb from Baytree Farm of Emlenton. This year, the Alcorns will also help host a Farm to Fork event in Titusville.

A popular concert series that began in November 2017 will continue to occur each Thursday evening from 7 to 9 p.m. at Karma Coffee Company, with local music, the option to BYOB, and food available. The arts are represented throughout Karma Coffee Company on the walls, too, in which different artwork continues to be rotated in and out monthly.

With the move of lunch from Northside Eatery to Karma Coffee Company, also comes exciting upgrades and new plans going forward. The Alcorns will begin using an updated POS system, creating even more efficiency within the business, and a website will be created for Karma Coffee Company.

image1“Instead of two separate restaurants open on different days and at different times, there will now be one open seven days a week,” said the Alcorns. “We are consolidating the spaces, but in reality we are expanding our business to offer more diversity and offerings.”

We encourage you to check out Karma Coffee Company on Facebook and stop in for lunch once their new schedule begins (see hours below). The Alcorns will also continue to serve dinner at the Yellow Dog Lantern Restaurant, located at 218 Elm Street and open from 5 to 9 p.m., Monday through Saturday.

The Alcorns don’t plan to stop with their current businesses; they have ideas for future projects to help the Venango Area move forward.
