Home improvement gurus Chip and Joanna Gaines are branching out into the quick-service food industry with a new eye-opening project. Instead of fixing up houses, they'll soon be fixing up cups of espresso.

In February, a rep for the former "Fixer Upper" stars confirmed to TODAY Food that the duo would be opening a coffee shop together.

Just after the Fourth of July, Joanna revealed when the new cafe will officially be open for business — and its catchy name.

"For the past couple of months, we’ve been working on a new addition to the Silos grounds," the HGTV star posted on Instagram. "This fall, our coffee shop Magnolia Press, will officially open!"

She also shared a design rendering of the building's exterior.

In February, the Gaines' rep told TODAY that "the coffee shop will include a full-service coffee bar, fresh-baked pastries and an assortment of hot teas, among other menu offerings."

Fans of the famous family can't wait to visit the new cafe.

"Can hardly wait for our next visit! We stopped by last week and I am so impressed with the careful intention and quality put into every detail—merchandise, grounds, greetings... You provide an experience with excellence," said one enthusiastic fan on Instagram.

Unless you happen to live near Chip and Joanna's Magnolia Market at the Silos or their restaurant, Magnolia Table, you'll have to travel to Texas to get a cup of Magnolia Press coffee and espresso.

According to the Waco Tribune-Herald, the new cafe will be located in downtown Waco, just one block from the Silos.

Joining the coffee scene is just the latest move for the couple's expansive Magnolia brand, which they launched 15 years ago.

In addition to their shopping complex and eatery, there are plenty of other ventures bearing the company's name — from furniture and home décor to paint, books and more.

For those curious about how the couple decided to name their company, Chip revealed the sweet and simple answer on the HGTV series finale of "Fixer Upper" in 2018.

"You know what’s interesting about a magnolia tree?" he asked his children as he planted another tree. "One of mama and I’s first dates, I climbed up a magnolia tree and I pulled her off a magnolia bloom, and I gave it to her."

And the rest is history.
