New B-Corp Cafe to Open on Parkside
Community Advocates Plan for Jam to Give Back to the Parkside Neighborhood

The Parkside neighborhood will soon be welcoming a new local business. Jam, a benefit corporation cafe, is set to open this fall – aiming to operate in a way that gives back to the community.

Owners Amber Small and Monica Cichon, both long-time advocates for the Parkside neighborhood, brought in Co-Owner Jesse Crouse, owner of Tipico Coffee on Fargo and Jersey, to help craft the perfect space. “Jam is what the Parkside neighborhood has been waiting for,” said Crouse. “It will be a unique experience, available every day, it’s a brand new world class offering, reflective of the mix of forward-thinking and time-tested that makes up our world class community.”

Jam is focused on fresh food and beverages, featuring a coffee menu crafted from locally roasted Plume Coffee and a drink menu filled with house-made milk shakes, sodas and other beverages. The food menu ranges from baked-in-house pastries from Elm Street Bakery to heartier pesto rice bowls and sous vide cooked eggs.

The team at Jam will be conducting a capital campaign and community offering over the coming months. More details to come on how the public can get involved. For questions or media interviews, please contact Amber at (716)936-0170.
