Waller's Coffee: “Run a business and care about people around you. Those belong together.”

Waller's Coffee: “Run a business and care about people around you. Those belong together.”

In this episode of “From Kitchen To Cause”, we speak with Jason Waller. Jason is the owner of Waller's Coffee Shop in Decatur, GA (https://www.wallerscoffeeshop.com/). Jason opened Waller’s Coffee Shop because he wanted to have a music venue and a coffee shop and he wanted to help break the stigma attached to mental health issues, particularly depression and anxiety. Waller’s Coffee hosts different seminars and workshops and shows focused on mental health. They’ve done projects with NAMI and local nonprofits and outreach. One of the biggest things they did was provide an atmosphere where it's okay to be yourself and it's okay to talk about struggling. Waller’s has stayed connected to customers digitally with a Youtube series, Depression Awareness Dude and weekly video mental health check-ins.
