Adda Coffee closes all Pittsburgh locations

All Adda Coffee & Tea House locations in Pittsburgh are closed, the company announced on its social media Thursday.

The company blames monetary losses, exacerbated by the pandemic, but employees tell Pittsburgh’s Action News 4 they believe the closure is in response to employees forming a union.

“Never were we under the assumption that any of the stores were going to close, so this is really sudden and really heartbreaking for everybody,” said Chris Gratsch, former lead barista at Adda’s Shadyside location.

Gratsch said he and at least 30 other employees announced their move to unionize Wednesday night, and now they’re looking for a new job. Gratsch believes the company shutting down is a direct response.
