We discovered the news today that comedian and actor Brandon T. Jackson is in final stages of launching a coffee franchise out of Atlanta, titled Kingdon Cafe And Vegan.
According to Jackson, it’s not a competition with everything that’s happening to Starbucks, as this plan has been in the works for over 2 years. As a matter of fact, this coffee shop franchise is the complete opposite; “its built on equality and support”. Again, Jackson states, “This is not a boycott of Starbucks, it’s just us trying to launch a business. We want your support Starbucks. We are a black-owned business. Starbucks, support us if you really love us, and teach us, and watch us grow.”
