A Quote from a Hard Bean Co-op Member
[This is] not my first association with this great group of business owners who cooperate with one another for better pricing, better help along the way, and the ability to build together a name that is recognized for its quality, its atmosphere and its excellent service.
My daughter is the primary owner and manager of our own Hard Bean Cafe in Grandview, MO. We opened the doors on March 11, 2006. We are proud to have created a community within the town's community. We have given the residents, business owners, employees of nearby businesses, students and teachers a place to call home.
