The owner of Tashi’s Place took a leap of faith to pursue her passion, quitting her veterinarian job to fulfill her dream of owning a coffee shop.
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — A new coffee shop is open in Grand Rapids, after COVID-related delays pushed their opening back for months. Tashi’s Place is nestled in the Belknap Lookout neighborhood.
And on this International Women’s Day, the owner wants to encourage anyone out there to be bold, take that leap and fill their cup, just like she did.
“We wanted to create a community-based coffee shop,” Linda Skornia says.
Tuesday was the shop’s second day in business, as she brewed up this new opportunity for herself.
“We’ve had repeat customers on our second day already so we’re happy to have that,” Skornia says.
