FISHERS, Ind. -- It's more than just a cup of coffee at The Well Coffeehouse in Fishers.

Located in the Nickel Plate District, the business opened in August last year. When you buy a cup of coffee at the locally owned spot, some of your money will help build wells in Third World countries for people who don't have access to clean water.

"Now we are starting a domestic project, too," said owner Debbie Zanacaro. "There are actually about 1.7 million people in this country that have tenuous water supplies."

Debbie and her husband own the coffeehouse and opened the franchise after visiting the first location in Nashville, Tenn.

"We offer a community atmosphere where people can come and sit and talk. We equated the idea like Cheers for coffee, where everyone will know their name!" Zanacaro said.
