Man with autism opens his own coffee shop after struggling to find a job: ‘It’s just a beacon of hope’

Everyone deserves a chance to make his life better, no matter their condition is. I feel so angered when I hear about companies that refuse to hire people with special needs, even though they have the requirements. For Michael Coyne, the situation was no different. Michael began searching for jobs when he was 21 years old, but he had no luck, so he just decided to open up his own business.

Michael Coyne has autism, but he didn’t let the rejections from employers bring him down. In fact, it must have given him the inspiration to take his destiny into his own hands because he decided to start his own business. He and his mother founded a coffee shop in North Smithfield, Rhode Island called Red, White & Brew.
