Why I Love Bitty & Beau’s Coffee Shop

As some may know, my daughter ,Ciara, recently started her very first job.

In summer of 2021, I heard about a coffee shop called Bitty & Beau’s was coming to Waco and they were going to be hiring people with disabilities.

Ciara and I decided to attend the job fair, just to check it out. We didn’t get our hopes up, in fear of the job not being accommodating to her needs.

We soon realized they were interviewing applicants that day.

Ciara was doing so good in her interview, without my help. That’s when it sank in that this could happen, my baby girl, could get this job.

A few weeks later, I received THE e mail… Ciara got the job! They wanted to give the news to all the employees together at one event. They disguised the event as a wiffleball tournament at Katy BallPark in Magnolia Market.

When we arrived at the event, we were greeted with popcorn and lemonade.

Ciara was a little confused but was excited to see what a whiffleball tournament was.

The field was bombarded with people holding signs saying “You Got the Job“.

Mark and Amy Sauer (the owners of the Waco location) and Grace Casper (general manager of the Waco location) entered the field holding Bitty & Beau’s aprons.

They called each employee, one by one, to come up and receive their apron.

To say Ciara was excited is an understatement.

It was such a special moment for all the employees, families, and friends.

Ciara has started her new job at Bitty & Beau’s, as the drink caller. They have a very unique way of calling their orders. After you place your order, you are given a playing card, when your order is ready the caller calls your card.

Ciara couldn’t be happier with her new job. They have accommodated all her needs and made her feel like an adult.

We really never knew if this could be possible for Ciara. For her to be independent at her job and in a safe work environment.

I feel like Bitty & Beau’s made a dream of Ciara’s come true.

I can never thank them enough but I would like to to say thank you to Mark and Amy Sauer (the owners of Bitty & Beau’s Waco) and the Founders Ben and Amy Wright.

If you want to learn more check out their website https://www.bittyandbeauscoffee.com or come by one of their many locations. I promise you won’t be disappointed.

You will be greeted by some of the most amazing and dedicated employees and some pretty amazing drinks as well.

They also have merchandise you can purchase that has their slogans “Not Broken” and “Radically Inclusive“. You can even purchase Bitty & Beau’s aprons.

You may even catch them during a dance party and join along.

Hi YA'LL!
Welcome to Perfectly Imperfect Plus Life! I started this page so that I could share my journey to loving myself.
I am a plus size mom of two wonderful kiddos. Ciara is 19 and Leland is 13. They are my world! I am also married to the man I began dating when I was 16! It has been a long and bumpy road but I think we are getting a hang of this married stuff.
I have been overweight for most of my life and I don't think I have ever truly loved my body the way it is. So I am starting this journey to self love and I hope that I can have others to join me a long the way!
