The BeanZ & Co. Story

Two friends share one mission: expand job opportunities for people of all abilities

Noelle Alix and Kim Morrison met twenty years ago at a mother’s group for children with Down syndrome, and were instantly friends. That first meeting planted a seed that today has grown into BeanZ & Co., an inclusive coffee café employing individuals with and without intellectual and developmental disabilities—a place where everyone belongs.
