Bitty of ‘Bitty & Beau’s Coffee’ invited to appear on Sesame Street

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Many of us are familiar with Bitty and Beau’s Coffee on New Centre Drive in Wilmington.

Now, one of the faces of the coffee shop will soon be seen on another street – one that’s home to a big yellow bird.

Bitty Wright has been invited to appear on Sesame Street!

The coffee shop posted a photo of Bitty with Sherrie Westin, president of Global Impact and Philanthropy for Sesame Workshop.

Bitty’s parents opened the coffee shop in 2016 to employ people with disabilities.

Mom Amy Wright made headlines last year when she was named CNN’s 2017 Hero of the Year.

Amy says she will let us know more about Bitty’s “Sesame Street” appearance in the coming weeks.
