While some businesses are still struggling, others are finding ways to expand.

Purple Cup Coffee Company just arrived to Evansville with a drive-thru only concept on the West Side just one month ago.

This weekend, they opened up a second location on the East Side.

Shop owners say there is still a glimmer of hope for small businesses even during this pandemic.

"We have been very fortunate and blessed to have this opportunity here," says Bruno Dravenieks, owner. "I think a lot of it was timing. Believe it or not, the pandemic has created opportunities, also for some small businesses. I know there's not a lot of businesses opening up during the pandemic right now, but because we have a concept here in Evansville that no one else really has. It's allowed us to become successful."

Purple Cup Coffee Company plans to expand with a third location in Fort Wayne sometime in February.
