Aroma Joe's opens another Lewiston location

Courtesy / Aroma Joe's Aroma Joe's franchisee Tulio DeAlmeida, a native of Brazil, now has three stores in the Lewiston-Auburn market.

Aroma Joe's, which has an aggressive plan for franchise growth, now has a third Lewiston store.

This new location is at 754 Main St. The 1,500-square-foot store offers both drive-thru and walk-up options.

It is owned and operated by franchisee Tulio DeAlmeida, who opened his first Aroma Joe’s store at 166 Center St. in Auburn in February 2017. He opened his second store at 403 Sabattus St. in Lewiston in January 2020. (Aroma Joe's has another Lewiston location, at 1930 S. Libson St., under a separate franchisee.)

“I came to the U.S. from Brazil with only $473 dollars in my pocket and not speaking any English,” said DeAlmeida. “Over the last six years, Aroma Joe’s has supported me on my path to realizing the American dream. I enjoy making community connections and to make someone’s day better by providing a great product and great customer service. I love Aroma Joe’s, our customers and especially our baristas. They are like family to me.”
