The Raleigh Rescue Mission – A Local Partnership

The Raleigh Rescue Mission has been working to alleviate homelessness and hunger in the Raleigh area for over 50 years. Barker Realty has supported this life-changing organization here and there over the last several years. We pack lunches every month for their residents.

Back Alley Coffee Roasters

Back Alley Coffee Roasters is located in Wake Forest, NC and specializes in single-origin coffee from around the world. Barker Realty has recently developed a partnership with them to provide a gift of high-quality local coffee to Realtors who refer tenants and investors to Barker. As we were looking for a partnership with a local coffee company, the mission of Back Alley is what initially drew us to them. They partner with non-profit organizations by giving back 50 percent of their net profit from any whole bean purchases. The owner, Tracy McKenzie, started roasting his own coffee at home and as his passion for high-quality coffee grew the dream of expanding to a brick and mortar store began.


Back Alley

The store is located in downtown Wake Forest at 314 Brooks Street. At their cozy location, you can enjoy hand-crafted pour-overs, nitro cold brew, local baked goods, conversation, and community. The people and mission behind Back Alley Coffee Roasters are just one of the many reasons why Barker loves supporting and partnering with local businesses.
