PHMDC issues notice of intent to revoke food, drink license for Helbachs Coffee
MIDDLETON, Wis. — Public Health Madison and Dane County has sent a Middleton coffee shop a notice of intent to revoke their food and drink license.
PHMDC told News 3 Now they have issued three citations to Helbachs Coffee Roasters after the shop violated the county’s mask mandate.
Owner Casey Helbach has since created a GoFundMe page to raise money to fight the mask order, stating it infringes on constitutional rights. To date, the fundraiser has raised over $8,000.
Helbachs originally drew criticism after a customer posted a photo of a sign on the shop’s doors which called Helbachs a “mask free zone.” A group of protesters gathered outside the shop later that week to voice their disdain.
A motion hearing for Helbachs’ citations will be held Sept. 10 in Dane County Court.
