New coffee shop opening in South Tampa will employ people with disabilities

An innovative new coffee shop opening in Tampa this Feb. will train and employ people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Called CUP (Coffee Uniting People), the nonprofit is the first of its inclusionary kind in the Tampa Bay area. It will be located at 3408 South Dale Mabry Highway. CUP is the brainchild of attorney Greg Jones, who is teaming up with manager Stephanie Williams to give more employment options to people who need them.
