Default Homeless Calgary man's coffee delivery business takes off

Good on him! Touching story. I wonder how long his business will last, though.

Tim Barber delivers hot brews downtown


An interesting business idea has helped one Calgary homeless man turn his life around — Tim Barber will move into his new house Thursday night.
The entrepreneurial Barber launched Timmy's Only to bring Calgarians morning brew to them.
For those that don't want to wait in line for coffee, Barber and his "somewhat silent" partner Chris Morris will deliver it.
[PHOTO]Barber says he used to be addicted to crack cocaine and the new business investment has given him a second chance at life.
“I can tell you putting $400 into this business is a lot better than going out and using crack — bottom line” said Barber.
“I felt really good about myself doing this. I remember when I got my business licence I had to show it to everybody just to say ‘Look! I've got it, and I'm doing this’."
Tim can be reached for coffee deliveries at 403-465-5232.
Barber takes orders Monday to Friday starting at 6:30 a.m. and delivers anywhere in the downtown core.
“Because of my positive attitude, I am into a place tonight,” he said. “I found a great landlord and a nice house out on Country Hills Boulevard. And I move in tonight, so I'm really looking forward to that, and I really look forward to this business taking off."
