As word of mouth spread, Jobot became popular with both the locals, music artists and coffee connoisseurs alike and expanded into its new home just off 3rd St. & Roosevelt, evolving to also sell a range of local craft beers and play music from up and coming DJs and music artists.

Jobot is also an important center for the community, advertising local events, supporting local people and promoting local produce and artists.
