Rad Dish Cooperative Cafe and Grocer

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

After hearing about the possibility of a space on campus a group of students rallied together to design a co-op to go in it. This semester a group of those students created a research based independent study to put together a business plan for a cooperative cafe and grocery. Currently they are working a putting together a short film for the project, and should be featured in Temple's crowd funding platform, Owl Crowd in the next month. With all of the start-up co-op projects in Philly right now, they are in good company, and this should be an exciting story to watch unfold.
