Why Grounds?

Grounds for a Better World has been voted “Midland’s Best Cup of Coffee” for the past 10 years, and in 2009 we adopted the mission to donate 50 percent of our proceeds to non-profit organizations both in our community and around the world.

Our reputation of excellence paired with our commitment to give back to the community makes us an ideal partner for organizations looking to create a café experience at their corporate center. With Grounds, corporations get the best of both worlds – award-winning coffee and a café experience that aligns with their corporate citizenship program.

Grounds for a Better World is more than just a great investment, it is helping children in need across the globe.

So the real question isn’t “Why Grounds?” but rather “why not?”
