Coffee with a mission is coming to Annapolis.
Bitty & Beau’s Coffee, a Wilmington, North Carolina business, is opening up a new location in the previous location of Starbucks on Dock Street.
Bitty & Beau’s is a business dedicated to hiring people with intellectual or developmental disabilities. Founders Amy and Ben Wright started the business in January 2016, and named it after her son, Beau, 14, who along with his sister Bitty, 9, has Down syndrome. For Beau’s 12th birthday, the Wrights added Bitty’s name to the business.
Amy, Bitty and Beau announced the Annapolis store via Facebook last week. The Annapolis store will open in early July. Read the full article on the Capital Gazette.
