I got a link to post to Capabilities’ social media outlets, and I had to do a little more research, as this business seemed like a great story. While doing this, I thought that this story had to be shared in more detail, so here it is… Hopefully you enjoy it as much as I did researching it…
The Spotted Cow Coffehouse is a new business in Urbana, OH. The coffee business is a great business to get into, and it seems like they are positioning themselves very well to take advantage of this. Another way that this business is taking advantage of business opportunities is by specializing in hiring people with disabilities. According to the mission on their website, the Spotted Cow Coffeehouse envisions a continuous goal to build the lives of adults with disabilities. They also say that they will facilitate the growth as individuals and they will construct a positive synergy to extend to our guests and our community.
According to a recent article in the Dayton Daily News, the Spotted Cow Coffeehouse is employing three people with disabilities and two high school students to oversee the workers. Another great thing that I see is that they are giving the people with disabilities jobs that they want, not just putting them in the jobs that would be easiest for them to complete. It is great to hear that Eric, their recent associate of the month, is even working on mastering the espresso machine and memorizing drink recipes.
The Spotted Cow gets their mission and vision from their founder and CEO, Bobbi Custer. You can tell her passion of helping people with disabilities from reading about her bio on the Spotted Cow website and her blog.
I know next time I am in Urbana, I have a new place to stop! Luckily, I will be able to follow them through their Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts, so that when I get there, I will feel at home already
Congrats to the Spotted Cow, and Good Luck with your business! I am sure with all of your positive energy you are putting out there, you have to be getting some of it back… Hopefully other businesses will see this example of how hiring people with disabilities can be a great business decision to help your business.
