When Amber, Carmen & Chad opened 50/50 Coffee House & Pub, we wanted some very specific things. We wanted an unpretentious place with really good food for the soul and from the soul. We wanted to provide organic, fair-trade coffee and craft beer. We wanted an inclusive community space that almost feels like home; where children are welcome and our customers become extended family. We also knew that we wanted to support other small business people in our community. Through positive partnerships with other female and minority owned businesses were are achieving these goals as well as meeting the growing needs or our community. We hosted a variety of community-lead events, local artists, pop-up markets and a retail collaborative. 50/50 Coffee House and Pub was our space and our communities ideas.
Our mission has always been to serve our community. We are seeking funds that will allow us to adapt to the new and changing needs of our community as well as supporting other small businesses that are in this struggle with us. We imagine a future where 50/50 Coffee House & Pub continues to embody the principles of:
Ujima (oo-JEE-mah) - Collective Work and Responsibility - Building the community together and solving problems as a group.
Ujamaa (oo-JAH-mah) - Cooperative Economics - The community building and profiting from its own businesses.
Kuumba (koo-OOM-bah) - Creativity - Using new ideas to create a more beautiful and successful community. Thank for supporting 50/50 Coffee House & Pub and all of the amazing members our community!
