PB&J Coffee Crew

pbj coffee crewOur business venture will need to get the word out about what we are doing. Also, we need for the community to try (and buy) our coffee roasted by special people. So, we are starting a sales force to help us.Our team is called PB&J in honor of two of my brothers who have died. P is for my brother Paul. B is for my brother Butch. And J is for me, Jim.

At some point, we will be hiring several part-time coffee sales people for our business.

We are making these positions available only to people with disabilities. This is part of our mission to help people with disabilities have more meaningful lives.

Sales experience preferred but not required. There will be a learning curve because you will have to learn our story so we need someone who has the patience and determination to learn something new! Salary will be $8.00 an hour to start.

Another way to help would be to join our sales crew as part of your organization or church or business. The more of our coffee you sell, the more credits go to your organization. These “coffee credits” will be used to obtain pounds of coffee from us for your organization to use. For example, for every 10 pounds of coffee you sell, we will give you a free pound of coffee. Once we start selling coffee and making some money, we will be able to hire a sales crew since we will have money to pay you.

So contact us and let us know how you would like to help us!
