[T]he happiest place in Wilmington, North Carolina, is now making its way to Savannah, Georgia. Bitty & Beau’s Coffee, founded by Amy and Ben Wright in 2016, is a budding café chain that employs people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The Wilmington shop is named for two of the owners’ children, who both have Down syndrome. Amy was honored as CNN’s Hero of the Year in 2017 for her advocacy and leadership in creating employment opportunities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The chain’s second location opened in Charleston, South Carolina, in February of 2018, and the third location is scheduled to open this Saturday, January 12. A ribbon-cutting ceremony and grand opening celebration will be held at 10:00 a.m. at the new outpost at 319 W. Congress Street.
