INSPIRE Community Café


INSPIRE Community Café is a restaurant located at 510 Tillman in Memphis that has experienced at least a 25% drop in revenue as a result of COVID-19.

Staffing was reduced from 7 to 3 people.

There has been a drastic reduction in the customer base due to people working from home and children doing online learning. The business has been forced to drastically reduce orders with local small vendors.

Stabilization and Recovery Plan:
- Landlord granted 5 months of rent abatement
- Building out an online ordering & payment platform and adding new "grab n go" menu items
- Creating a discount card program for people who live or work within one square mile of the café

The NEED Grant funds will be used for salaries, rent and overhead expenses.
