Raleigh’s Slingshot Coffee Co. just moved into a new 13,000- square-foot brewing facility in the southern part of Raleigh. The husband-and-wife company of Jenny and Jonathan Bonchak has become one of the nation’s standard bearers for cold brew coffee, found across the country and in mainstream grocers like Whole Foods and Publix.
