Patrick Dempsey wants to buy coffee company

The actor wants to save more than 500 jobs by purchasing Tully’s Coffee, a Seattle, Washington-based company facing closure.

According to the Associated Press, the potential sale will have to be approved by a judge.

In a post on his page, Dempsey writes, “I hope we are successful in acquiring Tullys Coffee.”

A bankruptcy court hearing is set for 11 January (13) in Seattle – the same city where Dempsey’s hit medical drama is set.
