A Hudson Valley coffee shop announced via social media that they're closing their doors for good. Bad Ass Coffee on Route 9 in Wappingers Falls will no longer be the place to go for a cup of Joe in the morning.

Owner John Ferrara has been in business for nearly a decade and decided to close up for several reasons.

I am at a different stage of life , need to focus on my health, family, and profession... AND to enjoy life!!

If you have never dreamt, planned, built, and maintained a business of your own....and SACRIFICE your life...you will never know what its like...

Have you ever wondered what it would cost to open a franchise like Bad Ass Coffee? You'll need more than $200,000 just to get the ball rolling. That includes $70,000 for store design and construction, along with $53,000 for equipment. If you'd like to add a drive thru, you can tack on an extra $13,000.

Special thanks to John and Bad Ass Coffee for many years of delicious coffee, it's sad to see him go but focusing on health and family is important.
