Alicia Marion
Owner, Motor City Java House

[Motor City Java House] is the place where the world meets. You get more than coffee. You get to have great company, something to eat, volunteerism, community programs . . .

It started ten years ago as a dream, five years of building, and we’ve been open twenty-one months. Five to ten years from now I hope to have many more employees. I hope to have at least two more of the Java Houses in the city of Detroit, and I just plan to prosper and grow.

I am blessed, and I know I’m supposed to be here. This is my calling.
