McDreamy latte, anyone?
Patrick Dempsey, the actor who plays Dr. Derek Shepherd on “Grey’s Anatomy,” is leading a group that hopes to purchase Tully’s Coffee -- a coffee shop chain based in Seattle.
Tully’s filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy in October, due to cash flow problems. Since then, the company has closed some of its unprofitable locations and reduced overhead.
Dempsey couched his bid as a way to save jobs in the Seattle area.
“I’m excited about the opportunity to save hundreds of jobs, give back to Seattle and become a larger part of the economic growth and fabric of the community,” he said in a statement. “I’ve always loved this city, and with the purchase of Tully’s Coffee, I plan to spend a lot of time in Seattle and at the stores connecting with the community and growing the Tully’s brand.”
