The Beaningful Coffee story starts at Neighborhood House, where families earning low incomes have been receiving support and gaining skills for more than 120 years. In 2018, the developers of Osborn370 approached Neighborhood House with an idea: start a coffee shop in the newly developed lifestyle building. Leaders at Neighborhood House jumped at the opportunity and Beaningful Coffee was born. Today, Beaningful Coffee is providing on-the-job skills training for our education participants who are ready to apply their classroom learning to real life situations. Using hospitality as the model, our Beaningful employees are gaining real-world experience in leadership, business operations, product development, customer service, interpersonal communication, and marketing. These skills mean that Beaningful employees will have what they need to secure family-sustaining employment for a bright future.
