Remedy Coffee Offers Free Coffee and a Blank Canvas

The latest coffee shop in Downtown Knoxville wants you to join their “Mug Club”. For $100 Remedy Coffee will give you free coffee for a year and a mug, crafted by a local artist, that you can paint to your liking. Sounds like a good Christmas present to me. Thanks to Gavin Baker for the link.

    While I like Remedy’s focus on charity and giving, I’m concerned about their status as a non-profit and religious affiliation puts them on an unfair (no-taxes) status with other coffee shops downtown.

    Can anyone confirm whether or not they’re officially a “church” or if they in fact operate within the normal tax structure as other businesses?

    Patrick,

    The coffee shop is indeed owned and operated by Knoxville Life Church but…..

    Since selling coffee obviously falls outside the scope of our mission as a non-profit religious corporation, we are subject to the same taxes as every other business. Payroll, sales, all that good stuff!

    We are excited to get the doors open!
