After 11 years in the NFL, retired veteran linebacker Stephen Tulloch opened a coffee shop in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, never imagining his first post-football entrepreneurial venture would lead to the invention of an innovative new point of service tool that is becoming a game-changer for restaurants and drive through businesses across the country. 
Tulloch opened his first Circle House Coffee shop in the Flagler Village area of Ft. Lauderdale in 2019. Stephen, a Miami, Fl native attended Miami Killian Senior High School. Stephen, was drafted by the Tennessee Titans in the 4th round of the 2006 NFL Draft. He played college football at North Carolina State University. He was also a member of the Detroit Lions and Philadelphia Eagles before retiring from the NFL in 2017.

During his 11-year NFL career, Tulloch found coffee to be the key to fueling his day. Circle House Coffee’s concept is created to bring people together and awareness to both local and global needs. While playing in the NFL, he started the Stephen Tulloch Foundation giving back to underprivileged kids and helping people affected by Cancer. The four times Walter Payton Man of the Year Community Service Team Award recipient has a passion for giving back and paying it forward. Some of his projects include treating 55 kids affected by Cancer to every home game, adopting families for the holidays, author of a children’s book “The Little Linebacker” Story of Determination and building a school in his Mother’s hometown of Westmoreland, Jamaica named the Mercedes B. Tulloch infant school after his mother Mercedes Tulloch.
