HERE ARE THE HEARTS + HANDS BEHIND GOOD MANNER.
From left to right: Karla, Gabe, Alisha & Ray.
Good Manner is Good Manner Coffee + Little Parade. Though they are family, their businesses had operated separately for several years. Good Manner Coffee was strictly an online store and Ray & Alisha roasted, packaged and shipped from home since 2014. Karla was holding Little Parade (Early-Childhood music) classes at various locations across the city since 2016.
Good Manner Coffee was growing and needed a store-front to expand their roasting space and Little Parade longed to have a central place to settle and hold more classes. When the opportunity regarding a beautiful space in the Lakeview neighborhood fell onto their lap they had the grand idea of sharing the space and finally bringing to life an old dream of owning a family-run shop.
The two are now operating in perfect harmony as Good Manner.
