WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Bitty & Beau’s Coffee Shop has opened their newest location in Port City.
The new shop is inside the PPD’s worldwide headquarters on N. Front Street in downtown Wilmington.
The Wilmington-based company also has a location on New Centre Drive. Since opening in 2016, they have expanded to Charleston, SC, Savannah, GA, and Annapolis, MD.
Bitty & Beau’s Coffee announced the PPD location in July 2019.
PPD held a grand opening Friday.
“The café, open exclusively to PPD employees, will provide an engaging space on the PPD campus for collaboration and connection in a casual work environment,” the company says.
Bitty & Beau’s Coffee is run by people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), and provides a one-of-a-kind experience that is changing the way people view those with disabilities.
“What great match right? You’ve got a company trying to do it and an organization that lives and breathes inclusion and that partnership to me is really strong.” Chief Human Resources Officer Ron Garrow said.
“Bitty and Beau’s Coffee was born out of this organic relationship that started a long time ago with them,” Bitty and Beau’s President and Founder Amy Wright said. “It’s just been so exciting to see the coffee shop be embraced by this corporate world.”
