Bitty & Beau’s Coffee in Wilmington, NC (USA) is known for its warmth.

At the heart of the shop’s popularity is its unique staff: Almost everyone who works there has an intellectual or developmental disability, ranging from Down syndrome to autism to cerebral palsy. For many employees, it’s their first job, and their joy fills the air.

Nearly 70% of adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities do not have jobs, these folks resolved to do something about it. https://www.bittyandbeauscoffee.com/
