Founder Max Dayan always enjoyed Chicago’s rich coffee culture, but found himself having to go far from his neighborhood to find it. He wanted more than great coffee and delicious food close to home – he wanted a welcoming, comfortable space for people to come together, connect and bond.

So he created one.

“The name Bond is inspired by my mother, Bonnie. She was the glue that held together our community, our neighborhood and our family. She created a house that had an open door policy and became the default place for the neighborhood kids and parents to gather and connect. Bond Coffee Collective was created to provide that familiar, safe and welcoming space from our childhood where people can come together and open up to each other.”
