A coffee and ice cream shop with a mission!
Inclusion. Jobs. Dignity.


At Rise & Nye's, we provide secure, successful jobs which in turn help our employees form meaningful friendships with their peers; live independently; improve their public speaking, develop self-advocacy and communication skills; and feel valued and included by society. We celebrate and honor their special abilities!

It's an Inclusion Revolution!

Integrated employment,
front and center

For too long, people with intellectual and developmental disabilities have been kept in the shadows. Rise & Nye's is about inclusion, acceptance and opportunity for all. Visit us in our awesome flagship shop, right in the middle of downtown Sarasota, Florida.

Dignity and Respect


Great coffee and ice cream in an inspiring environment

Slow down, enjoy delicious coffee and gourmet ice cream treats while you spend time with our amazing Rise & Nye's team members.

Which nitro coldbrew will tickle your fancy today? Stout Truffle, Strawberry Blonde Hibiscus, Maple Vanilla, Blueberry Basil, Stout, or Horchata? But, wait — maybe even toss in a scoop of our house-made vanilla ice cream for a rockin' coldbrew float!
