For Five Coffee Roasters was founded in 2010 by two best friends from Queens who wanted to introduce specialty coffee by New Yorkers for the world. Stefanos Vouvoudakis and Tom Tsiplakos, the founders of For Five, met in third grade in their Whitestone, Queens classroom and have been working together ever since. The two ventured into the specialty coffee roasting and wholesale business and built their roasting facility in Maspeth, Queens. At first, they sold their roasted beans to restaurants and other wholesale accounts before opening their first cafe on West 46th Street in Manhattan in 2016 — right in Times Square. Since then, they’ve opened shops across New York City and into Los Angeles, Boston, Washington DC, Virginia, Chicago, and even Athens.
