Mott Community College cut the ribbon on a new Coffee Beanery franchise located on
the main campus in Flint on Tuesday, Oct. 24, with Beanery owner, and MCC Alumnus,
Julius Shaw and his wife Joanne Shaw on hand.
The Shaws donated the franchise to the College as part of its Culinary Arts program. The MCC Beanery is located on the main floor of the Prahl College Center in the former Alumni Lounge. The donation is valued at $27,500.
The primary function of the MCC Beanery is to serve as a working laboratory for the Culinary Arts program at the College, much like the Applewood Café restaurant, also located in the Prahl College Center. It will have limited hours and limited menu offerings, including hot beverages, and pastries made by the culinary program. The MCC Beanery will be manned by students and supervised by a faculty member from the Culinary Arts program.
“We greatly appreciate this gift from Julius and Joanne Shaw. It will enable us to expand and enhance program offerings for our Culinary Arts program,” said MCC President, Dr. Beverly Walker-Griffea. “Their commitment and support of their alma mater will directly impact the future success of our current and future students.”
The MCC Beanery will be open Monday to Thursday from 7:30 a.m.to 3 p.m. and on Friday from 7:30 a.m.to noon.
