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.

Students from The Haven Academy toured our shop last week to see that there’s hope that they too could have a job one day. 80% of people with a disability are unemployed - that’s just unacceptable. We choose to include and let abilities shine. #sarasota #inclusion #inclusionrevolution #choosetoinclude #abilities ...

Lilly the incredible guide dog loves to visit Rise & Nye’s, and we love her! #inclusion #guidedog #sarasota #inclusionrevolution #letsstartamovement ...

Ava says you gotta try the Love Beans. Small lot, Nicaraguan Selva Negra beans with notes of rum, caramel, and vanilla. Locally roasted, USDA Organic, and just plain delicious. #inclusion #inclusionrevolution #sarasota #goodcoffee #goodcause #abilities ...

Natalie helped at Rise & Nye’s yesterday - she cleaned, decorated cups, learned all about the shop, and she took Miss Maxine (the cool trike) for a spin! Stop by on a Tuesday or Thursday to meet Natalie and share a high five. #inclusion #inclusionrevolution #sarasota #dignity #jobs #abilitites ...

The final leg of the Special Olympics Law Enforcement Torch Run will stop at Rise & Nye's tomorrow at 9am! During the last few weeks, teams of law enforcement members and Special Olympics athletes have carried the torch from Chicago (the site of the first Special Olympics Games 54 years ago) to Florida.

Come on down to celebrate and honor the 5,000-plus athletes who will compete in the 2022 USA Games in Orlando starting next week.

Ian had a big time at Sammy's Run last night. He hung out with the gang from The Haven, and he handed out tons of ice cream to hungry runners. Let us know if you need help at your next event!
