It's more than just a coffee shop. Outside Coffee Co is a passion project by Woosah featuring a 1956 Dalton Travel Trailer converted into a coffee shop and parked in a beautiful green space attached to Woosah. This is a campaign to help us bring the community together through this outdoor space, and of course - coffee!
Woosah is located at 738 Wealthy st SE, Grand Rapids MI and the garden lot is located right next door at 734 Wealthy st SE. Outside Coffee will be open May 1 - December 25th.
We believe taking time to enjoy the outdoors is essential to one's happiness. We also believe that community and relationships are just as crucial.
Through this space we will host a wide range of events supporting local artists, businesses and musicians. On a daily basis the garden will offer both a place to work and recharge. Whether you want to plug in and work from one of our community tables or unplug and lounge in a hammock, we've got you covered. Wifi and electricity provided.
Woosah is a locally owned art and apparel brand inspired by the outdoors. In December last year we relocated from downtown Grand Rapids to Uptown on Wealthy Street. When we chose this location we had our eye on more than just the building, the beautiful garden lot next door stole our heart. It has always been our dream to expand into an outdoor space. Woosah was a grass roots start up brand that was also funded via kickstarter back in 2015. We can't thank you enough for your support back then and today.
We have already exhausted our personal funds ($40,000) for this project and truly need your help to bring it to fruition. We have achieved a lot on our own: obtained our special land use permit, purchased the camper, purchased some essential equipment, sourced coffee and supplies etc.
The funds raised from this campaign will help us finish our camper build out, change and add to the existing landscaping, work with a welder to add an entrance to the garden off Wealthy Street, build outdoor furniture (this is where Dan comes in again!) and add lights (you know, the cute string Edison bulb kind) and electricity so you can plug your computer in and charge up!
We have created some limited edition rewards in return for your support. Check em' out below! If this project is successful, we will throw an exclusive party for our Kickstarter backers prior to our grand opening, coffee's on us.
Shout out to DJ Viernes for crushing our video! Thanks friend.
Risks and challenges
We have already received our special land use permit from the GR planning commission, and are prepared for our health inspection in April. Our only setback at this point is our need for more funds.
Once funded, we will reach out to you in regards to your selected reward and ask details such as what size t-shirt you'd like etc. All rewards are on schedule to ship out by the end of May, if not sooner. We hope to see you all soon at our Kickstarter thank you party!!!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
