The Third Way Café is a coffee shop that my dad and I started back in December. It’s a place where people can come together, drink coffee, have a good time, and discuss the common good.
What makes this a special place?
We have amazing coffee. We are partnered with Coffee Crafters. They do great work in the prison system training people to become baristas (a person who is trained to make coffee specialty drinks). Our goal is to hire those people who are coming out of prison to get them back into the workforce and contributing to society. We sell a lot of books. We are going to start donating books to the library and local school. We put on events for the community and we have a lot of sweet art. It’s just the place to be. When you come here, you’re going to be part of something great. You’re going to be part of the future of social enterprise and the future of how businesses should operate: caring about the community, caring about people, making a change, caring about the environment, and pursuing the common good.
