Drive-thru coffee concept, 7 Brew, will open its first Little Rock location at 11100 N. Rodney Parham Rd., the site of the former Shorty Small’s. The new location will open in early fall and is part of an aggressive expansion plan for the company.

“7 Brew is excited to open its first stand at the former Shorty Small’s restaurant site,” said Brandon Sebald of Brew Crew, LLC. “The company has grand plans for the Little Rock market with double-digit stands planned for the future, and several sites opening before the end of 2022. Little Rock, get ready for the coffee revolution.”

The Rodney Parham Building Company, LLC acquired the lot in March 2022 after Shorty Small’s closed in December 2021. Since then, they have been evaluating tenants that would drive business to the Pleasant Valley area.

“While we are grateful to Shorty Small’s for their decades of service as a true Arkansas institution, we are thrilled to be part of the future of the area with the opening of 7 Brew,” said Michael Newton of Rodney Parham Building Company, LLC. “This one-of-a-kind coffee experience prioritizes fast, friendly delivery of unique, hand-crafted drinks. We look forward to starting our mornings at 7 Brew.”

The Little Rock location will be hiring over 40 brew crew members at its new stand in the coming months.

7 Brew serves espresso-based coffee, chillers, teas, infused energy beverages, sodas and more.
