Talia Drive Thru

In 2012 The Kozak's opened Talia Espresso Drive Thru in Wilkesboro, NC.  with the continued promise of excellent espresso, cappuccinos, coffee and more in a convenient drive thru location.  Jim and Kathy know that without a deep faith in Jesus Christ an amazing family and many friends, this vision would not come to pass.  With hard work, dedication and passion of prayer this has been the driving force in their business.
