Tully's coffee has 500 employees. Tully's coffee has also filed for bankruptcy. Along with some other investors, Patrick Dempsey is trying to buy the company and save the jobs. The chain is based in Seattle and has about 100 locations. I think it is great that he is trying to save jobs. Probably trying to make some money too, but anytime you can help 500 people stay off the unemployment line, that is a very good thing. Plus, if he decides to stop acting he knows he can always get a job as a barista at one of the stores.
