Bitty & Beau’s to open third location this fall

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — It’s been called “the happiest place in Wilmington” and the official coffee of the Rachael Ray show. Now, even more southerners will be able to enjoy the smiles and dance parties at Bitty & Beau’s Coffee.

According to a press release, the shop that hires people with intellectual and developmental disabilities will open its third location this fall in Savannah, Georgia.

“We created Bitty & Beau’s Coffee to show the world that people with disabilities should be valued, accepted and included members of society, especially in the workplace,” said Amy Wright, “It’s a place where diversity is not just appreciated, it’s celebrated”.

Amy and Ben Wright founded Bitty & Beau’s Coffee in 2016 in Wilmington, in honor of two of their children who have Down syndrome. A second shop recently opened in Charleston, South Carolina.

Amy Wright was also named the 2017 CNN Hero of the Year.
