(Updated 05/04/19) Ballston will soon be home to a new veteran-owned cafe serving up breakfast, lunch and doughnuts all-day.
The owners of Good Company Doughnuts and Cafe say they’re eyeing a soft opening on Sunday starting at 6:30 a.m., pending final health and permitting inspections this week.
The cafe is located at 670 N. Glebe Road, on the bottom floor of the 672 Flats apartment building.
Good Company is run by Charlie and Melissa Kachadoorian, his sister Kate Murphy and her husband Jim Murphy, and Tim Terry and Ana Terry.
Tim Terry, Jim Murphy, and Charlie Kachadoorian are Army, Navy, and Air Force veterans.
“We just need a Marine,” joked Kate Murphy.
“We will feed lots of Marines. Marines love doughnuts,” replied Tim.
Good Company will be serving handmade doughnuts baked by Kate Murphy. She uses a 60-quart, 300-pound mixing machine for mixing the dough so heavy she said a forklift needed to move it into the kitchen.
The machine mixes 50-pound batches of dough, which she says yields around 300 doughnuts.
Murphy says she’ll be baking cake and yeast-raised doughnuts with flavors from cinnamon sugar to butter crunch.
The cafe will also serve “light breakfast fare” like smoothies and yogurt parfaits along with”rustic pastries” like quiche and lemon scones. Soups, salads, and sandwiches will be served at lunch, with a signature “Cubano” sandwich made with pork braised in-house daily.
The family enterprise says they hope to expand with dinner offerings after a grand opening planned for Memorial Day, and eventually add a liquor license.
The subway-tiled eatery features a map of Arlington on the wall by the tables, and giant donut-mixer whisks as lampshades.
Good Company partnered with Chicago-based Intelligentsia Coffee for their brews.

Synetic Theater Camps are a wildly fun, highly accessible choice for young people who love moving, playing games, and making memories. Registration is open now for Summer Camps (sessions June 20-August 25) and there are even a few spots left for Spring Break camp, April 3-7.
Located in National Landing, these performance-based camps are designed for students of all ages – no theater or performance experience required.
Led by professional teaching artists, campers learn acting, movement, and technical theater skills through the lens of Physical Theater. Physical Theater incorporates acting, movement, dance, mime, and acrobatics. If you’ve seen a Cirque du Soleil performance, you’ll find many similarities.
Most first-time campers are new to the performing arts, and teaching artists are well-versed in engaging students at all levels. Parents and campers report that one of the best parts of Synetic is the community, with many families returning year after year because they feel a strong sense of belonging.
