WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) – Bitty & Beau’s Coffee announced its tenth franchise location will open in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Since founders, Amy and Ben Wright, opened up franchise opportunities in August 2020, they’ve announced future locations are coming to Charlotte; Winston-Salem; Washington, D.C.; Athens, Ga.; Waco, Texas; Houston; Boston; Bethlehem, Pa.; and Auburn, Ala.
Along with the flagship store which opened in Wilmington in 2016, there are currently Bitty & Beau’s Coffee shops located in Charleston, S.C., Savannah, Ga., and Annapolis, Md.
The Wrights like to describe Bitty & Beau’s Coffee Shop—named after their children—as a “human rights movement disguised as a coffee shop” since their locations employ people with intellectual and development disabilities.
