The Business

The Challenge / The Opportunity

  • The Population With Disabilities (PWD) in the U.S. is largely underserved. About 82 % are unemployed.

A Solution to Create Value

  • Open a warehouse to train employees, ship orders, create products, and provide pop-up coffee shops with an innovative community focus to employ PWD and provide community-based services- locally.
  • Grow from within and existing community base, friends, and relatives that have an “affinity” to support the PWD market segment.

It’s Happening Now

  • In August 2020 our warehouse has opened at The Loading Dock at 1053E East Whitaker Mill Road Suite 115, Raleigh, NC 27604
  • Gabi and her friends are shipping orders, creating candles, and packing gift boxes.
  • Pop-up coffee shops are continuing to happen at local events in the Raleigh, NC area.
  • In 2021 we expanded the kinds of work services we provided to include packing and shipping orders for other businesses.
