Philz Coffee, the San Francisco-based chain, that last month announced plans to enter the Chicago market, is opening another area location in suburban Evanston. They’ve begin the process to debut a location at 1030 Davis Street, according to the Evanston Design and Project Review Committee. The space had been on the market for a bit.

The chain’s been around since 2002, and has ties to California’s Silicon Valley with location inside Facebook HQ. They’ve got about 50 locations nationwide. A Wicker Park location, the first in the Midwest, is slated to open sometime next year at 1640 W. Division Street. Expect more Chicago locations in the near future.

Philz recently announced plans to open inside a new downtown hub in San Francisco; business is going well as the company opens more locations in its mission to “disrupt” the coffee business. An email to Philz’s corporate team wasn’t immediately returned. Stay tuned for any further details as this coffee sensation makes its way toward Chicago.
