Coffee shop opening on Garland Road to provide formerly incarcerated women with jobs

A new coffee shop is opening this fall on Garland Road with a mission that goes far beyond supplying neighbors with their daily dose of caffeine.

Husband and wife duo Michael and Natalie Huscheck plan to open Well Grounded Coffee Community at 9219 Garland Road.

The coffee shop is partnering with Exodus Ministries, a faith-based nonprofit, to provide formerly incarcerated women with jobs.

“Michael and I are just coffee freaks,” Natalie said. “The other part of our hearts loves building community and giving second chances. We want to show them what healthy community looks like.”

Although Exodus Ministries is the couple’s first partnership, they hope to collaborate with other organizations and expand in the future.
