Cheeni is opening a new location: You may know Preeti Waas’ café inside the downtown YMCA, offering masala chai, South Indian filter coffee and tiffin. While the Fayetteville Street location is temporarily closed, Cheeni is working to expand to a location on Hillsborough Street with a full kitchen and have space for their new partnership with the YMCA to teach classes such as barista training, baking and ServSafe classes. To make it possible, Preeti launched "Chai Ambassador" memberships to help cover the costs to the new location. These pre-paid Cookie, Chai and Biryani subscriptions are available on the Cheeni website
