WEST ALLIS, Wis. — A new coffee shop in West Allis is on a mission to employ as many people with disabilities as possible to give them job training and normalize those who have differences.

Kindly Coffee, located at 1205 S. 70th St. next to the MATC building, had their soft opening on June 4. It employs three people with mental disabilities and has three other employees that act as peer mentors. Plus, there are three other people with disabilities who didn’t want to be full on employees, but instead are volunteering at the coffee shop.

“There’s not enough opportunities. There’s not enough people that want to employ people with disabilities, and I don’t think that’s okay, because I think people with disabilities can do just as much, or even more as people without disabilities, especially in the work place,” Sydney Tucker, the co-founder and CEO of Kindly Coffee said.
