WHO WE ARE & WHAT WE DO

Since August 8, 2022, the founders of Beans and Bites, Kris Sayers & Brittany Cochran, have been working on educating the community about the desire to offer employment and assist in building life skills for the intellectually & developmentally disabled. In Grundy County, IL, there is an 80% unemployment rate for individuals with disabilities. We strive to do our part in lowering that statistic, creating meaningful life opportunities for these fine folks, & providing a great environment for families to teach their children about disabilities while enjoying some great beverages and delicious pastries.

--WE ARE HAPPY TO ANNOUNCE THAT WE ARE MOVING INTO PHASE III OF OUR BUSINESS PLAN!--

We are operating our non-profit business in three phases:

Phase I is pop-up events where we serve coffee, pastries, & other goodies at local events, & we have recently started doing private events for local businesses.

Phase II is identifying a location where we can have a drive-through facility & customers can purchase their desired items & continue about their day.

Phase III is moving into a brick-and-mortar building where we can have a fully operating bakery/kitchen, drive-up service for our customers on the go, & a dining room & merchandise shop for our guests who want to mingle with the employees, have lunch with a friend, work on homework, or enjoy some healthier options with your young children.

OUR MISSION AT BEANS & BITES

is to provide workforce opportunities in a safe, social environment, building life skills while increasing community awareness & reducing the unemployment rate of individuals with intellectual & developmental disabilities.
