LOS ANGELES (AP) — Patrick Dempsey says he wants to rescue a coffee house
chain and more than 500 jobs.
The "Grey's Anatomy" star said Wednesday he's leading a group attempting to
buy Tully's Coffee. The Seattle-based company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy
protection in October.
Dempsey said he's excited about the chance to help hundreds of workers and
give back to Seattle.
The actor has a strong TV tie to the city: He plays Dr. Derek Shepherd on
"Grey's Anatomy," the ABC drama set at fictional Seattle Grace Hospital.
Tully's has 47 company-run stores in Washington and California, as well as
five franchised stores and 58 licensed locations in the U.S.
Any sale would have to be approved by a judge. A bankruptcy court hearing is
set for Jan. 11 in Seattle.
