Bitty & Beau’s Coffee, a company hailing from North Carolina, is gearing up to unveil its eighteenth store in the vibrant city of Birmingham, AL.
Inspired by their two children with Down syndrome, the brand was born in 2016 under the leadership of the Wright family, dedicated to reshaping perceptions of individuals with disabilities, particularly in the workplace.
“80% of people with disabilities don’t have jobs -- and we’re out to change that. Not just by providing employment opportunities for people with disabilities, but by showing our guests what’s possible,” said co-founder Amy Wright. “Bitty & Beau’s Coffee has created a path for people with disabilities to become valued, accepted and included in every community -- we’ve said it from the start -- it’s more than just a cup of coffee.”
Wright added, “With the support of the community behind us, we are energized to bring Bitty & Beau’s Coffee to Birmingham, where we know that our store can positively impact the entire community.”
