Caffeine Corps in Mobile, Alabama, is not your average coffee shop. Mandy Clark-Green, the owner, describes it as a caffeine shop dedicated to caffeinating the hardworking community of Mobile. If it has caffeine in it, Caffeine Corps sells it.
"My husband and I wanted a good energy drink and I wanted a good cup of coffee, and you can't go one place to get both," Mandy said. "So I came up with the idea of a caffeine store, and found there was no such thing. So I ran with it."
Caffeine Corps was founded less than a year ago by Mandy and her husband, Brad Clark. Mandy is also a U.S. Navy Reservist, and Brad is a fireman and first responder.
The shop has hard-to-find energy drinks, cold brews, locally roasted coffee, and more — including Death Wish Coffee, which Mandy said is the store's No. 1 seller.
About half her clientele are veterans or fellow reservists — so when we reached out about having Riki's Ride stop at Caffeine Corps, it was a no brainer. Caffeine Corps already works with local military members and veterans on various charitable causes.
On the morning of August 23, Caffeine Corps. will host Riki Rachtman, Lea Vendetta, and Riki's Ride to raise money for Stop Soldier Suicide. Riki and Lea are traveling the United States on a motorcycle to raise money for this veteran organization. The organization provides mental health counseling, housing assistance, emergency financial aid, alternative therapies, and more.
So if you're local to Alabama and looking to support a good cause, head to Caffeine Corps on August 23! Find more details below.
