A new owner took over Tight Squeeze Coffee Shop at 125 College Street in Burlington last month. Palden Sangmo, who purchased the business from Mike Lucey, told Seven Days she wanted to own her own small business. She said she plans to make no changes at Tight Squeeze, which serves coffee, tea, espresso drinks and baked goods from Barrio Bakery.

Sangmo, 37, said she has been a server at Sherpa Kitchen, also on College Street, since it opened. She now works two nights a week at Sherpa Kitchen and during the days at Tight Squeeze, which opens at 7:30 a.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m. on Saturday.

Lucey, Tight Squeeze's previous owner, said he'll focus on his remaining downtown business, Burlington Hostel.
