Rising Grinds reopening

GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - The Riding Grinds Cafe is going to be reopening at the LINC space on Madison Avenue on Monday, Nov. 20. 

The restaurant's building was destroyed by a fire on Nov. 19, 2016, but the community rallied around the coffee shop to help rebuild it. 

Rising Grinds Cafe is a social enterprise business that provides job opportunities for young people in the neighborhood. The kitchen and dining area were renovated by neighborhood youth and contractors. 

The cafe will have a breakfast and lunch menu, plus coffee. It will also be working closely with Bethany Christian Services to provide youth with other support services.
