Company Description

Earth, Wind & Books: coffee and brunch is the ideal meeting space for young book lovers and coffee drinkers. We offer a way to relax and browse books with the addition of hot coffee and pastries. As we are different among the 300 bookstores in the state, Earth, Wind & Books will identify as a black-owned independent bookshop. This is relevant in that we will be 1 of the 6 bookstores across the state and 125 in the country to represent diverse reading. Our goal is to push underrepresented books to be more accessible, visible and promoted.

Key Deal Facts

We believe that bookstores are the cornerstones of civil, creative and healthy communities. Building in a way that brings like-minded individuals together, Earth, Wind & Books will be a destination to connect locals. A physical space is needed as it serves a physiological purpose that ecommerce bookstores such as Amazon cannot replicate.
We have set in place some strategic goals to stay relevant during our down seasons. These goals include partnering with local nonprofit foundations to raise benefits for low-income, k-12 reading and tutoring.
Earth, Wind & Books will hold multiple events centered around charity, book reads, holidays, etc. to bring in numerous customers across the Dallas Metroplex. With our strong team and customer service, we will gain customers and keep them.
