Patrick Dempsey wants to buy Seattle coffee shop


Patrick Dempsey is planning to buy a coffee house and save it from bankruptcy…

The “Grey’s Anatomy” said Wednesday that he’s leading a group in an attempt to buy the Seattle-based Tully’s Coffee, which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in October.

Dempsey (or Dr. Derek Shepherd), who has been filming his hit ABC drama Grey’s Anatomy in Seattle for 7 years, is excited about giving back to Seattle and helping hundreds of worker that wouldn’t have to be unemployed. But acquiring the coffee house isn’t as easy, since any sale would have to be approved by a judge.

Tully’s has 47 company-run stores in Washington and California with five franchised stores and 58 licensed locations in the U.S. The company is set to go to a bankruptcy hearing January 11 in Seattle.
