Compass Coffee has opened a new location in Fairfax City, further cementing a stronghold in the area.

The coffee shop opened on Monday (March 21) at the new Point 50 shopping center, located at 10400 Fairfax Boulevard.

Compass Coffee first opened its doors in D.C. in 2014. Since then, the coffee shop has expanded to 12 locations across the D.C. and Northern Virginia area.

The Fairfax cafe is the company’s 13th location. It’s managed by Steve Pongrace, who has lived in Fairfax for over 15 years.

“My team is committed to delivering Legendary customer service to every customer that walks through our doors,” Pongrace said. “We can’t wait to get to know the city of Fairfax and build a strong community of regulars at the Point 50 shopping center.”

Joel Shetterly,  the company’s vice president of marketing, says the business looks forward creating community and connection over coffee.

“We’re obsessive about every detail of the café experience so that there is nothing to take away from the moment you are sharing with a friend or loved one over a great cup of coffee,” he said in a news release.

In February, the company opened a new location in the recently renovated Ballston Quarter.

City of Fairfax Mayor David Meyer said the shop will help create a “third space” outside of work and home.

“With the opening of Compass Coffee and other new businesses at this center, Point 50 will become a hub for social interaction and pedestrian activity,” Meyer said.

Point 50 is a new shopping center that brings a little over 48,000 square feet of retail space, including a grocery store, to replace the aging, 68,000-square-foot Fairfax Shopping Center on Route 29.

The center has other tenants like Matchbox, Big Buns, and Orange Theory Fitness. It will be anchored by an Amazon Fresh grocery store.
