David Chabala is the founder and CEO of Hallowed Grounds Coffee Roasterie. He established our business from a home hobby beginning in 2007 to our store front location in New Brighton 2008. It was always in the plans for him to join the business full time to get him out of his "day" job. However, sometimes the Lord has other plans. David is currently working at his full time job painting cars to keep us in benefits. Our son, Drew has taken over many of the responsibilities that David used to do. David taught Drew how to roast the beans. David continues to help by fixing everything broken and doing some of the heavy lifting, but Drew has relieved David of much of his day to day store activities, freeing David up to focus on preparing for retirement in the not so distant future. David will always be an intricate part of the business for without him, there would be no Hallowed Grounds;)!
