The Sparrows Coffee & Tea & Newsstand

The Sparrows is a household name when discussing coffee shops in Grand Rapids. Their wealthy street location has been a favorite for over 10 years. Last year, their founder and owner, Lori Slager-Wenzel, decided it was time to expand and begin roasting their own coffee beans.

With the help of OppFund, Lori was able to open an auxiliary location on Bridge Street, and officially joined a niche group of roasters providing the Greater Grand Rapids Area with a much-needed local option for coffee beans.
