Rival Bros. Coffee, which launched in 2011 as a truck, is addiing a brick-and-mortar location with a cafe opening early 2014 at 500 S. 24th St.

It's the corner of 24th and Lombard Streets near Fitler Square, last occupied by Taste Buds Market.

Jonathan Adams, partnered with lifelong buddy Damien Pileggi, said the shop would be "100 percent coffee driven. Our main goal is to pour as much coffee as we can pour, as late in the day as possible."
