About Us

Our Founder

Melissa Green founded Southern, Sweet & Sassy with the intent to help connect Military Families one cup at a time.

As a Military Spouse, Melissa has relocated to various areas where family was not accessible. Being the new spouse with young children in a new environment became difficult. In the Navy, "sponsors" were provided for the service member, but not for their family. During transition, information and help was hard to come by.

Because of this experience, Melissa is in process of creating an environment that will help Military Families connect with each other during transitions. Be inclusive! Invite new families over for an amazing cup of Southern, Sweet & Sassy coffee!

Melissa is a Military Spouse of 17 years, and a U.S. Navy Veteran. Her husband, Landis, is U.S. Navy Retired. Together, they have four children, two dogs, and three cats. Melissa believes in connecting, networking, and learning the stories of others. "You never know who you will connect with or who you could potentially help."

"Because it's not just coffee... It's connecting!"

- Melissa, Owner of Southern, Sweet & Sassy Coffee
