Bitty & Beau’s Coffee
All of Bitty & Beau’s front-line employees have disabilities such as autism, Down syndrome, or TBI; the employees bring a joyful spirit to the shop that makes Bitty & Beau’s the “Happiest Place in Waco”.
Amy & Ben Wright are the proud parents of four children — Lillie, Emma Grace, Beau and Bitty. Lillie was born with autism, and Bitty & Beau were born with Down syndrome.
With over 80% of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities unemployed nationwide, the Wrights believe that Bitty & Beau’s Coffee creates a path for people with disabilities to become more valued, accepted, and included in every community.
The original shop opened in January 2016 in Wilmington, NC, and employed 19 individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Today, Bitty & Beau’s Coffee has grown to over 23 shops across 12 states with over 200 employees. The Waco location opened in 2021.
