New Coffee Shop Owners

Angela Harmon

Angela grew up in east Tennessee from a small town in the Smoky Mountains. Part of a non-military family, Angela was the first to go to college and was in the 5th class of women that entered the Air force academy. She enjoyed a great career in the Air force as a pilot. Angela flew KC-135’s as a captain at Pease AFB in New Hampshire as part of SAC (strategic air command). She was also a T38 instructor at Columbus Air force Base in Mississippi. The military was challenging especially being a woman and at that time, women could not fight in combat. When Angela flew as a T38 instructor (the fastest airplane you could fly at the time), it was a huge honor as a woman. Now she has moved on in her career and found PJ’s Coffee. Recognized as a family-oriented company, Angela believes PJ’s shares many of her values. Angela and her wife, Denise are excited to give back to their community and begin their new venture as PJ’s Coffee Franchisees.
