Parable Coffee




Equity & Inclusion

For Profit

We are a Black and Queer owned business that operates as Columbus’ first and only gratuity-free cafe. We are trying to see the change and be the change we wish to see in this industry. One that is wrought with low wages, turnover, and burnout.

We believe that creating systems at the foundational level to help our employees flourish combat all of the problems we see in the industry. We are building a culture of care and support, and each hand washes the other. Parable aims to be a place where people can be seen and feel safe, and we think that’s what downtown Columbus needs more of, so we want to be an exemplar of those principles.
