About the Business
Stone’s Throw has been a fixture since 1995 as one of the first independent coffee houses in the Regina. When Kim took it over in 2014, it was rebranded as the “Collective”, with the intention of making it more of a focus on community. Stone’s is about kindness and caring and making people feel part of the community; great coffee and food is just the HOW. The best description, offered by a customer is “I can come to Stone’s by myself, but never feel alone.” That is what we strive to be. That said, Stone’s DOES have great coffee and food – we are a full service coffee and espresso bar, along with being licensed and carrying local craft beer. We serve a great selection of breakfast, lunch, and desserts, made in house; with a focus on simple, tasty ingredients, and are happy to cater your squares, pies, cakes, and events!
In 2020, Stone’s was voted “Best Coffee Shop”, was thrilled to be one of the recipients of 40 $5,000 “Conexsus Kindness Capital Grants”, and at time of writing is one of the 2021 Paragon Business Excellence Awards finalists.
Kim’s educational background is in Business Administration, with a focus on leadership, mediation, negotiation, change management, staff development, and project management. Prior to taking over Stone’s Throw in 2014, Kim spent most of her career in human resource management, most recently as a Sr. Exec with Provincial Government. She also volunteered with a number of non profit and sporting organizations. Kim’s long time interest in owning a coffee house was mostly around community and belonging – providing a space for people to gather and connect; where they feel they are part of something. And, she also loovveed coffee! Kim was nominated for the 2021 YWCA Women of Distinction awards (Trade and Entrepreneurship).
