The Athens location would be the second such store in the Peach State, and the ninth location overall for the Wilmington-based coffee company.

Along with the flagship store in Wilmington which opened in 2016, there are currently Bitty & Beau’s Coffee shops located in Charleston, S.C., Savannah, Ga., and Annapolis, Md., with franchises planned for Charlotte and Washington D.C. Additionally, there are two employee-only stores located inside PPD and nCino in Wilmington.

Founders Amy and Ben Wright like to describe Bitty & Beau’s Coffee — named after their children — as a “human rights movement disguised as a coffee shop” since their locations employ people with intellectual and development disabilities.
