Aspire CoffeeWorks

Aspire CoffeeWorks is a dynamic social enterprise between Aspire and Metropolis Coffee Company.

Founded in 2009, the partnership with one of the nation’s top artisan coffee roasters is one in which adults with disabilities on the Aspire CoffeeWorks team work side-by-side with Metropolis Coffee Company employees. It’s a groundbreaking, one-of-a-kind partnership and 100% of CoffeeWorks’ net proceeds go back to Aspire to support children and adults with disabilities.

This partnership is the perfect example of bringing adults with developmental disabilities into the workforce and how these relationships can be mutually beneficial. It also demonstrates that including people with disabilities is not only be rewarding, but easy.

It’s also worth noting that 79% of Americans say they would be likely to switch from one brand to another, when price and quality are about equal, if the other brand is associated with constructive, social change.

Aspire’s vision for the future is all about creating working business partnerships that model the success of Aspire CoffeeWorks. We hope you join us and benefit from our expertise in helping companies diversify their work force, build and enhance their community image and impact, and generate a real return on investment.
