Construction is underway on a permanent kiosk for Bump ’n Grind on the ground floor of Ellsworth Place.

Owner David Fogel told the Source via Messenger that he now hopes to open in early November, depending on the county’s expediency in the permitting process.

As the Source reported in July, the kiosk will offer Bump ’n Grind’s custom roasted coffees, espresso drinks, teas, juices, smoothies, an assortment of baked goods, and items to appeal to small children, who frequent a play area near the kiosk’s location.

One addition not offered at the original location will be gourmet hot dogs.

The kiosk is located on the lower level of Ellsworth Place in front of Michaels.

In other mall news, MetroPCS, T-Mobile’s prepaid brand, has signed a lease for space on Level 3 (where Not Your Average Joe’s and TD bank are located). The store is expected to open early next year.
