  1. Make your Mark: ArtPrize Nine

    ArtPrize season is here and we couldn’t be more ready. ArtPrize Nine is all about honoring the creativity and courage that it takes to make your mark. It takes serious courage to step out and create something, whether it be a painter attempting a new work of art or a barista creating a signature drink. We are here to celebrate those risks and their creative outcomes.

  3. We Like Our Coffee Mobile

    Taking Specialty Coffee On-the-Go

    Summertime in Grand Rapids is filled with the sights and sounds of people finally shedding their winter layers to soak up the sun. Picnics, shopping excursions, patio dining – suddenly the demand for convenient, outdoor-friendly food and drinks reaches a high-point. And while the smell of delicious tacos, gyros, and other street fare fills the city, we noticed that something was missing.

    Where was the coffee?

    It’s no secret that most Americans can’t get through their day without a cup of coffee, and yet as more and more food trucks lined the busy downtown streets, great coffee was nowhere to be found.

    Without a brick-and-mortar location to work out of, Ferris had begun to look for a way to continue delivering great coffee to Grand Rapids. And then it hit us: the solution had... continue reading →
