Our Partners

Butteriffic Bakery & Cafe at 488 S 2nd St - produces the best shortbread cookies we have ever tasted.  For three years we lived across the street and smelled the Butteriffic smells wafting over.   We decided if we ever realized our vision of a coffee shop, we wanted Tamika to be a part of it, and so she became the first person we talked to about Crazy Gander Coffee Company.  

 

Partnering with Memphis businesses and creating that unique Memphis feel is a focus for Crazy Gander Coffee Company and you Butter Believe we are proud to partner with Tamika and team.

 

Tamika Heard has been in the bakery business for two decades. Her parents are the founders of Makeda’s Homemade Butter Cookies. We bought shortbread cookies for ourselves and soon, as we do with all things we love, we were buying tubs of shortbread cookies to share with friends and family.

When planning our menu, we knew we had to partner with Tamika on our one and only combo - The Memphis (Butteriffic shortbread cookie with Crazy Gander drip coffee).

Cinnamon rolls and coffee are an iconic pairing and our team is always delighted to find a coffee shop with that duo on the menu. Now, Crazy Gander is that place: Homemade gourmet cinnamon yeast rolls from the Lovin' Ovens of Memphis' own, Beneva Mayweather.

 

Our good friend and Memphis native, Chef Leslie Rowland met Daniel Watson - the youngest grandson of Beneva Mayweather in the 7th grade. Daniel owns and operates Beneva Mayweather Foods and is working hard to share his grandmothers memorable culinary creations with the world.

 

Understanding our desire to create a menu for the coffee shop that was tasty and uniquely Memphis, Leslie connected us with Daniel and we've been getting down with #Mayweatherflavr ever since.

Our Approach to the Business Community 

Whether walking up Madison Avenue and glancing through the open garage door, by coming inside for a coffee, or by following our story on social media; the 17-foot-tall map on the west wall of the building is hard to miss.

 

The wall application is a hand drawn/traced rendering of an original map produced by P.F. Collier and Sons in 1911.   It shows a pre-World War I view of Memphis and a snapshot of how Memphis looked when 150 Madison was constructed.  It was installed over the course of a few weeks and was a challenge due to its size/weight.  It might also be the largest map of the city produced as its covers over 400 sq ft of wall real estate.

 

The map wall shows Memphis and 150 Madison Avenue in 1911 … Now in 2021, Crazy Gander Coffee Company is how we will make 150 Madison part of the modern business community.   

 

Both potential suppliers such as Beneva Mayweather Foods and Butterific Bakery & Cafe or businesses looking to satisfy their catering needs can reach out to our team via phone, email or the below contact form.

 

This map appears in the Historic Memphis Maps collection at Memphis Library : Memphis Room. Rhodes College features the map image in their digital archives.
