Food truck with autistic workers hits road in Florida
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — A Florida coffeehouse that employs only autistic adults is hitting the road in a food truck.
The founder of the Artistas Cafe in Tampa, Florida says being on wheels will better help the coffeehouse’s mission of showing the public that autistic workers can make good employees.
The cafe has been located inside a car dealership.
The Tampa Bay Times reports that the mobile coffeehouse will only be available when requested at an event, starting next month.
The food truck, called the Bean Mobile, will serve fruit smoothies and coffee, plus snacks like all-natural energy balls.
Autism is neuro-development disorder that causes problems with communication and social interaction.
