Restore the Bottom Line Coffeehouse

We are looking to raise $20,000 to clean up, fix-up and reopen The Bottom Line Coffeehouse while we FIGHT for restitution from Rocket Fiber and their contractors.

We sought to do the right thing. We've tried cooperating with Rocket Fiber and their contractors over the past 4 months in hope that we would be able to reopen without too much hassle.

We are now in the midst of that fight! And with your help we can show Rocket Fiber that even when they do wrong, the community does what's right.

We are now in a fight to just keep our small, black-owned coffee shop afloat. Fighting to clean up the sewage damage done to TBL; fighting to rebuild our beautiful shop for our amazing customers.

This money will help us regain our footing in the community we love.
It will allow us to have new cabinetry built, have the space deep cleaned, and buy new inventory among other necessities.

We fight because this is what it takes to survive in Detroit. The Bottom Line Coffeehouse is a Detroit business, run by Detroit natives who love their city. Join our fight to be part of our city again!

Please donate and help us bounce back from this horrible event.
