Recently Cam’s Coffee Creations and Bespoke Confections officially launched their joint venture by celebrating the grand opening of their pop-up shop in the Green Street Community Center.

Cam’s Coffee Creations was founded by 9 year-old Camden Myers who suffers from a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), which causes both cognitive and physical delays. What started out as a hobby to build Cam’s confidence has grown into a lucrative business that employs others with special needs.

Bespoke Confections is owned by Jiliana Dulaney. Dulaney uses her culinary skills and job coach experience to work with adults with Autism and other intellectual disabilities. Bespoke is known for their fresh baked scones, cakes, and healthy treats.

With their combined dedication to providing a safe and supportive workplace for individuals with disabilities, it’s safe to say that the partnership makes perfect sense. Combined, the two businesses employ six individuals with special needs.

The partnership, which officially launched on Monday, March 12, will operate as a pop-up style coffee shop and bakery in the Green Street Community Center located at 930 S. Broad Street.

When I first met Cam last summer the young entrepreneur was just getting his coffee business off the ground. As he talked about the future of his business and his goal to help other people like him, Cam let it be known that one day he wanted to compete with some of the big names in the coffee business like Starbucks.

While he may have a little more work to do to reach “Starbucks Status”; the partnership with Bespoke Confections and with his growing popularity in the community Cam is well on his way to making reaching his goal.

On Saturday, March 24 Cam was awarded the Youth of the Year Award during The Chronicle’s Annual Community Service Awards. After receiving his award from publisher James Taylor to the sound of a standing ovation, Cam was all smiles.

The Cam’s Coffee Creations and Bespoke Confections pop-up coffee shop operates Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 7:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. For more information call Latasha Barr-Lewis at 336-505-7999 or email camscoffeecreations@nullgmail.com.
