A new coffee shop is coming to Auburn that is working to shift the way people view individuals with disabilities.

North-Carolina-based Bitty & Beau’s Coffee is planning to open a branch in downtown Auburn next spring. The coffee shop is named after owners Ben and Amy Wright’s two youngest children who have Down syndrome.

“Eighty percent of people with disabilities don’t have jobs – and we’re out to change that,” said cofounder Amy Wright. “Not just by providing employment opportunities for people with disabilities, but by showing our guests what’s possible.”
