Reem’s is an Arab street corner bakery. They bring the warmth of Arab hospitality through fresh baked bread. Their specialty is man’oushe, a topped flatbread that you can share with friends or fold up and eat on the go, akin to a slice of pizza or burrito.
Reem’s isn’t just a business. At the heart of the work is a desire to pursue social justice. All of Reem’s leadership team come from a social justice background, and their shared focus around fighting xenophobia comes through the daily work at Reem’s.
The loan from Main Street Launch was specifically earmarked to hire people who run the daily work at Reem’s. Their dynamic team is at the heart of Reem’s goal of cultivating Arab hospitality. “The money let us invest in staff training early on. That helped us start the business off right,” says Reem.
