Meet Greg Casteen, also owner of Mo’Joe Coffee and Cupcakes and married to Ramona Cavenaugh Casteen for 25+ years!
He works at Townsend Auto Parts, just down the street from the coffee shop. You can catch him some Thursdays and Saturdays at the shop and when we have our truck set up.
If you know him, you know that there are many words to describe him! He is our silly “PePa” and can get the energy pumped up anywhere he goes.
Greg does so much “behind the scenes work.” And we are so thankful for all that he does! He and my husband (Blake) are the creative minds and working hands behind “building” our truck and any construction or handy-man work that we have.
Favorite drink: apple pie blend
Favorite cupcake: keto cupcakes
