Patrick Dempsey Leading Group to Buy Bankrupt Coffeehouse Chain
Here’s something kinda cool! Have you heard?
Grey’s Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey, who plays Dr. Derek “McDreamy” Shepherd on the ABC series, says he’s leading a group that’s hoping to buy the Seattle-based coffeehouse chain, which has filed for bankruptcy and employs about 500 people.
In a statement obtained by the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, Dempsey says, “I’m excited about the opportunity to save hundreds of jobs, give back to Seattle and become a larger part of the economic growth and fabric of the community.”
Dempsey’s character on Grey’s Anatomy works at the fictional Seattle Grace Hospital.
A bankruptcy court hearing will be held in Seattle next month.
I don’t know a woman alive who hasn’t had a crush on “McDreamy!”
Wouldn’t it be fun to run into him at the coffee house sometime?
