The Owners

Zen Coffee Bar is owned and operated by Henderson local, Abigail Gray Palmeri. As the youngest of four girls, she was born in Kansas, raised in Fountain Hills, AZ, but has called Nevada home for the past nine years. While our team at Zen is a family in its own, she lives with her husband Dan, daughter Skylar, and three dogs, BrookLynn, Sir Samson, and Dexter.

For the Palmeri’s, it’s all about giving back to the community through a family owned business that holds itself to a higher level of quality and service. This holds true as Abigail continues to expand the Palmeri name throughout Henderson. Despite leaving the family business in 2012 to pursue commercial real estate, Dan and his family have operated Gaetano’s Ristorante for over 17 years, opening for business in 2002. Skylar is currently attending Junior High and is an active swimmer and archer.

In their free time, the Palmeri’s enjoy attending Golden Knights games, traveling, snow sports, family 5k's, and archery.

Proclaimed “The Coffee Boss” by her godson, Abigail has a passion to own a business that’s a bigger part of the community. With a love for all things coffee, she felt that there wasn’t that special local coffee shop she had experienced in so many of her travels to other cities- somewhere unique, friendly and a place you want to hang out for hours on end. An establishment where the owner and staff are friendly, know your name and appreciate every time they see you walk in the door. With Zen Coffee Bar, her dream is a reality as a place that is not only a coffee shop but a second home for the community.

We look forward to meeting you next time you stop in, please be sure to say hi!
