A local coffee chain has gone viral on TikTok.

La La Land Kind Cafe, which has a location at The Pavilion on Lovers Lane, has 5.4 million followers on the platform.

Here’s how that stacks up to the followers of well-known, national organizations:

MLB: 5 million

Disney: 3.3 million

Nike: 2.2 million

McDonald’s: 2.1 million

Starbucks: 1.8 million

Target: 1.8 million

La La Land, founded by Francois Reihani, hires people who are aging out of the foster system.

The café is known for its bright yellow cups and its emphasis on kindness. That’s part of what attracted so much attention on social media.

Its TikTok page is filled with “drive-by kindness” videos, where people drive around town complimenting strangers going about their normal activities.

Many of these videos receive millions of views.
