Blake Hyland often greets customers by asking them “How can I caffeinate you today and make you smile?” And he follows through with personalized banter as he takes their orders. When there’s time, he follows up with his Joke of the Day, card tricks, and even amazing math tricks. 

Blake suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) when he was 14 years old, and his story is now told in a full length documentary entitled “Hi, I’m Blake” available on Prime Video. Check out this 3 minute trailer of the documentary.  He is graduating from Texas Tech University in December of 2022. He also has a featured article in The Challenge, which is the magazine for Brain Injury Association of America.  

Blake is a Cashier at Bitty & Beau’s. He greets customers, usually with humor, helps them select their options, and processes their order. His favorite drink, which he has named “The Blake”, is a Mocha Latte with Toasted Marshmallow, and Whip. Blake publishes his Joke of the Day on Tik Tok, loves to make people laugh, and is fascinated with time. Come meet Blake and all our other employees, and see why Bitty & Beau’s is the Happiest Place in Waco!
