ASHBURN, GA (WALB) -

Downtown Ashburn is growing in the form of new small businesses.

Two businesses opened over the past couple days.

HeBrews coffee shop opened its doors in downtown Ashburn for the first time Monday morning.

"We always have made the joke about, how did Moses drink his coffee? Just to remember the books of the Bible, and it was "Hebrews" it," said Gail Jordan, co-owner of HeBrews coffee shop.

Jordan and her daughter said they had always dreamed of this day.

"It's such a cute little town, and one thing it didn't have was like a sandwich shop in town," said Jordan.

However, the restaurant isn't the only business that opened in the past couple days.

A new boutique, R&M Clothing and Accessories opened right across the street on Saturday.

"It just represents a lot of growth that we're seeing in our downtown area," said Stevi Thompson with the Ashburn-Turner Co. Chamber of Commerce.

The location provides a good opportunity for both foot and vehicle traffic.

"They'll be getting a lot of pull from the courthouse, and our locals will be able to come here and eat," said Thompson.

Many of those locals stopped by Monday for the shop's opening day.

The Jordan's hope to play a giving role in their community.

"It all brings it back to the Bible, where it teaches you to love, to give, and appreciate the people around you," said Jordan.

Jordan said she hopes one day they'll enlist the help of those less fortunate in the community, making a trade off of a little help around the shop for a free meal.

Two different boutiques are set to open in downtown Ashburn as well, after the first of the year.
