Transitions away from coffee shop
By David Nordby The Brillion News
BRILLION – Tamara Hillmann closed the doors on Brillion’s only coffee shop last Friday. She’s moving to exclusively working in massage therapy under the new banner of Varada Therapy, no longer shuffling that with operating Hopscotch Lounge and Café LLC.
“Bittersweet,” Hillmann said. “Sad for all of the relationships I’ve created the last three years, but it’s exciting for the new adventure.”
Hillmann originally went to school for massage therapy and later studied nursing, where she spent a lot of time in coffee shops. Hopscotch has meant a lot to her over the previous three years.
“It was the perfect combination of the extroverted side of me and the introverted,” Hillmann said. “The café could take care of all the personal interaction that I want and I could still have the space for massage, so this building was perfect for combining both of them.”
Hillmann will be giving massages out of the Hopscotch location at 205 South Main Street for the next few weeks, where Hopscotch massage gift cards or certificates are valid until April. A new location in Brillion is being finalized, as is something new to move into the current Hopscotch location.
The market for massage customers is simple for Hillmann. “Everybody and anybody – all ages.”
