Community Owned “Jam” Gets Busy

It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Jam, a new café opening on Parkside in North Buffalo (learn more). But out of the blue, the owners are embarking upon a community painting party this Saturday, where their friends and supporters are lending a helping hand to get the place closer to being up and operational.

Jam co-owner Jesse Crouse says that the team still doesn’t have an exact opening date, but there is a stepped up effort to get the production of the space to completion. There is also a Neighborhood Capital Campaign underway (investors must be bona-fide New York State residents) that is in place to create the “community owned coffee shop”.

As for the future look and feel of the café, once open, Crouse says that the original plan is still in action, which will ultimately result in a café experience that rivals his other operation – Tipico – a successful neighborhood coffee shop located on the lower West Side.
