The idea for my coffee company United Grinds Coffee, was born when I worked with social service providers and homeless shelters on Chicago’s west side. Like many under-resourced areas there were challenges to overcome, but with me being , a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps and a Windy City native from the south side, I experienced one universal truth; great people are everywhere, and they each have an important story to tell. I grew accustomed to pulling up a chair, sharing a story over a cup of coffee, and the path forward became clear – create a company that celebrates incredible coffee as the great connector and, through that, give back to the Chicagoland community! If there is anything thing I can do to help you or your constituents, please let me know.
