Bringing the World to Chattanooga...
What do cultural events have to do with Mad Priest? Mad Priest Coffee Roasters started in 2015 to craft excellent coffee in Chattanooga, while empowering resettled refugees though employment and on-the-job training. But as a small, for-profit startup, we could only hire so many refugees. So we started looking for other ways that we could work with the immigrant and refugee community here and give other Chattanoogans a chance to experience culture.
In early 2017, we started hosting events around the city that enable folks to experience the world and its beautiful tapestry of food, culture, and tradition right in their own backyard. We seek to provide an immersive cultural experience that includes things like learning about cultural rituals, tasting traditional cuisines, and hearing new genres of music. So far we've had a taste of India, Iraq, Venezuela, Scotland, Argentina, Mexico, and Ethiopia and we're so excited to host many more events in our new space downtown this year. Follow The Mad Priest on facebook and instagram to stay tuned on upcoming events!
